Hey everyone. I’m 18 and have been diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis since I was 13. After a recent, horrible 2.5 month flare I’m on Remicade and it has helped a lot.
My pain clinic doctor recommended a Chronic Pain Management Group to go to once a month. I’ve been to the first meeting, there’s some interesting info but I feel so alone in the class.
I’m the only person with AS, and the youngest person in the class. The second youngest person was 30. It was what I expected when I saw the people in the group, older people lots of white hair. I’m not mad or upset that they’re there, I’m happy they’re getting information and support like me. I just knew it would be no one my age and no one with AS. I can barely find anything online about people my age with AS.
It would mean a lot if anyone here with AS, of any age to reply, maybe share your story if you’re comfortable and tell me if you can relate in anyway. Thank you ♥️
The last month I have been having a hard time. When my trauma happened back in 2012 i longed for a better life to the point of tears. I have always wanted a bf but the last month its like i have talked myself out of stuff good . I have been doubting myself and before my family drama and abuse at a job I wasn't thinking like this what has happened?
hey gang it’s been awhile I’m getting ready for my bladder surgery but my 13 yr old rat terrier I found out 7weeks ago is dying, Jackie is my joy. She’ll actually pat my back when I’m throwing up, she won’t let people near me if my pain is bad & 4yrs ago she saved my life. Of course my husband doesn’t want to put her down & I’m up all night w/her when she can’t breathe & is...
