A.S. Face 0157: Brian Ingersoll

I was diagnosed about eight years ago.

My  back is fused from tailbone to head.

For anyone that don’t know what A.S. is…

I will say this, it is miserable, pain, fatigue, depression, these are the three top things I deal with.

I pray for all of you that have A.S and have loved one that have A.S.

I am not HOPELESS, I still LAUGH and LOVE.

I just hope to bring awareness.
