Developing a Sense of Humour
Maintaining a Sense of Humor
Dealing with a painful, chronic condition, like psoriatic arthritis, which sometimes seems to get worse over time, can be quite frustrating, if not depressing. I find that regular laughter is a major distraction and diverts attention from worrying about my disease to something much more pleasant. It appears that there is some scientific basis for this, based on the release of endorphins, which reduce stress and help boost the immune system.
