A.S. Face 0511: Liza M.B.
I am 28 years old, I am from Montreal, Canada.
I was interested in being included in the faces of A.S.
I suffered many years of pain, saw many doctors and nobody could ever find out what was wrong with me. I finally got diagnosed in February 2012 with Ankylosing Spondylitis and Fybromialgia. I always try to raise awareness with these ‘invisible illnesses’ and being part of the faces would be a fantastic way of feeling like i belong somewhere.
I have an encouraging quote to put along with my picture, which describes me very well : ‘’I always do my best, no more, no less!’’ I rely on that quote alot because alot of people don’t understand A.S and they think i am a lazy person, or that i get discouraged fast, when in fact i do what i can without overdoing it!
So thank you for creating such a wonderful ‘world’ where we can all feel accepted.
