A.S. Face 0083: Gilles Hébert

Hi my name is Gilles i’m from Quebec,Canada.I’m 46 years young. I’ve been diagnosed with AS 2 years ago but desperately looking for answers for the past 14 years.
I’M currently under Embrel and Methotrexate but not getting the full results yet. Although pain is a big part of my life , i try my best not let it show. Sometimes i succeed , sometimes i don’t.
On this picture it was a good day. You get to really see my face …. not my pain.

  1. Gilles, you made a great point. I try my best to go through each day with a positive attitude, but my closest friends remind me now and then that they can see the pain in my face. AS radiates all over our bodies, but if we let AS affect our mindset, then it has totally taken over and it is harder to get back up!

  2. Dear Gilles,
    Thank you so much for sharing your story with us.
    I understand the desperation for answers it took 32 years to get my diagnoses. I think a lot of us try to hide the pain we live with, sometimes we do and sometimes we don’t. I am grateful that I was able to see your face.
    Sincerely Cookie

  3. Gilles, thank you for smiling and I want to encourage each of us to laugh when we can. Choose fun and funny things because I too refuse to live with allowing this to steal my smile. Love to smile. Please continue to do the same. Blessings…..!!! What’s it like where you live?

  4. Hi Stephanie. Thanks for the good words. I had an idea in January 2012, i guess it was a resolution, to take time to tell my family i am having a good day everytime i am, even if it’s only a day a week. Today was my first Remicade treament but still in my heart i was sad to learn that my daughter just got her AS positive diagnosis . 😦

  5. Awww, yes I can (see your face)! Hang in there, better medications are available and you will reap the benefits, never give up! 😀

  6. Bonjour Gilles, j’aurais des questions à te poser, peux-tu s.v.p. m’écrire sur mon courriel robergemrq@hotmail.com
