Southern Girl Flare - Psoriatic Arthritis Blog
I’m Gina, Welcome to my psoriatic arthritis blog! I am a southern girl by heart on a mission to educate, empower and advocate for those living with psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
My journey to diagnosis was long and difficult. The stages of grief that came with it were unbearable. I want to share my journey through my psoriatic arthritis blog with the hope that somehow I can help to educate those that are just starting out on their journey and to support and help empower those that just need to know they are not alone.
Family Is My Life!
I am a wife to an awesome supportive husband, mom to four daughters and Maw Maw to two amazing grandsons! My career for thirty plus years has been in sales and marketing.
Family is my life and I enjoy spending as much time with them as possible. We love to travel, hang out by the pool and bbq with friends. My husband and I are avid cruise freaks! If you ever want to know more about cruising don’t hesitate to ask LOL!
My family has been my greatest support system throughout my journey with psoriatic disease. I feel truly blessed that for the most part they understand when I can’t do the things I used to. Many with PsA are not so lucky and is what drives my passion to blog and share the lessons, tips and advice I have learned along the way.
It has always been a life long dream to write to inspire others. My passion to help others and to advocate for a cure for PsA is the motivation that drives my psoriatic arthritis blog.
I am sharing my story because I feel I have a responsibility to help others understand the signs and symptoms and what to expect with psoriatic disease. Seeking and receiving professional medical help is key in managing the disease early on to prevent the damaging effects. It is my hope that I can inspire others to keep a positive outlook and to always educate and advocate for yourself.
YOU are the only person that understands how YOU feel!
If you feel something isn’t right keep pushing for answers. On my journey to diagnosis, I discovered many valuable lessons and tips that helped to make my life easier and more manageable living with autoimmune disease. It was the inspiration for starting Southern Girl Flare and I hope that my blog posts and other information contained in my website will help you along the way.

Wishing you much happiness, pain free days and continued hope for a cure!
