Psorasis and Enbrel

I am 30 years old. I was diagnosed with Psorasis when I was 18. I am now appox 20 percent covered with the nastiness. I have shaved my head and tried countless ointments inclusing: Ultravate Dovenex Vitamin D steroid shots psoriatec countless over the counter meds. Tanning does help but the best thing is natural sun. It also helps to joke about it to alleviate the stress of the disease. Especially when people ask about it that I dont know..... its either Poisen Ivy, burned in fire rescuing hermit crab, Stung by jellyfish you name it I try to joke about it. Lately Ive been fed up with it and am starting therapy with Enbrel. In my case I think the good outways the bad in the side effect department. Just wondering if any one else has used this for P and if so for how long and when did the Doctor Discontinue or is it an ongoing treatment. How has it worked you you.
