A.S. Face 0511: Liza M.B.

Hello my name is Liza,

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.

Liza M.B.

  1. Perfect quote. Thank you

  2. Nine simple words that say it all! Love it!

  3. I am also 29 and have yet to be “diagnosed” eventho many doctors have danced around the subject. Life long pain plus Hasimoto’s Thyroiditis make living life difficult, but I do what I can and encourage everyone living with this to do the same.

  4. Oh you belong somewhere Liza. You belong here with us.

  5. welcome liza lovely quote facebook has a group called living with ankylosing spondylitis if you need extra support

  6. Welcome, Liza! Glad you are with us! I also hate it when people think I am lazy, like when I say, “I can’t do any more. I have to sit down.” They just look at me kinda funny. You won’t get that here–we only expect your best, no more, no less!! LOL
