Wandering Unfamiliar With AS

0 Comments 13 June 2012

Vacations can be amazing. Whether you go on an adventure, go somewhere to relax or even have a staycation. I truly believe it does the mind good. I recently tagged along on my husband’s work trip to San Francisco. He was tied up with a seminar the majority of the time, but I had a [...]

As 2011 draws to a close, I can’t help but look back at the past year of my life which was full of so many ups and downs. Ankylosing Spondylitis can be a challenge. Throw in health scares, full schedules, and a pinch of drama and you might as well put on your seat belt [...]

What Stage Are You On?

1 Comment 12 September 2011

When a person is diagnosed with a disease they go through stages emotionally and physically. Ankylosing Spondylitis warriors are no exception. I cannot tell you the number of times I have questioned my sanity. I have hit the point of exhaustion from pure frustration more times than I can count. On the flip side, I [...]

I always considered myself a strong person. I faced every hurdle that came my way without hesitation, and with courage and hope. I live a life with Ankylosing Spondylitis so every day can present a new adventure. To be honest, I wasn’t sure when I started this post if I was ready to share something [...]

Recently I had a four day adventure with Ankylosing Spondylitis. I didn’t know at the time that it was part of my AS adventure, but by the 4th and final day I realized the huge role it played. Let me warn you ahead of time that for some, this story may seem a little strange [...]

That Really Is The Question

I’m not sure if Shakespeare knew the impact his words would have when they first poured on to paper. “To be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles”. It’s a [...]

When most young girls are playing Barbies, house and dreaming of their wedding day there was me. Don’t get me wrong, I did play these things, but I always had a twist. I was a CEO, a writer, a renowned surgeon and a famous movie star. I could never settle for just one thing. I [...]

Being raised in a large family was quite the adventure. We joke we could of been one great sitcom. There was no such thing as quiet in our home. If you wanted to be heard you had to be the loudest. Unfortunately, I admit that I find myself still a creature of this habit. As [...]

People affected with Ankylosing Spondylitis live all over the world. It may be a subdivision, or an apartment, and possibly even in the home a block away from you. As a person battling AS, I have found that I do not limit the place I call home to only the one that provides a roof [...]

Why Not Ankylosing Spondylitis

4 Comments 22 February 2011

If I counted the number of times I said the words “why not” per week it would be astonishing. Ankylosing Spondylitis is not necessarily the original reason I began to use these two magical words, but I have found it has increased its place in my vocabulary. When you are a child these words are [...]
