A.S. Face 0468: David Morgan
my name is david morgan.. I live in Memphis,Tn and im 32 yrs old. i have been diagnosed with AS for about 5 yrs now. in the beginning i had a good Dr And a job. for the last three years i have had aleave and every other anti inflammatory i could find. since i dont have insurance a job and i hold three denial letters for Disability i havent seen a Dr about my As in those 3 yrs . my back is almost completely fused together . my neck is now stiff and in constant pain . the pain has now also spread to my chest and rib cage .. when i sneeze it feels like a ufc fighter kicked me in the chest. life everyday is a struggle to even get out of bed . Every one im sure knows how hard it is to support a family with even both people working. well since i cant work it falls all on my wife and shes a very strong woman but this load is wearing her down. I sometimes feel like a drowning swimmer pulling her under as she just trys to survive herself. our love is very strong but this definitely puts a big strain on our marriage.. people look @ me to b the big strong person i was but i know on the inside im brittle as a old bread stick. It would b so easy to b a drug addict . just put myself in a pill coma every day and live like that but thats not what i wanna do @ 32. i want my life back ,i want to enjoy life again .. sorry i used this as a way to vent..
