    • Hi Kristi! I’m so happy that you are now part of the Faces FB Family. It has been so great talking to you. I’m glad you like my kitties. They were 5 week old calico kittens, litter mates & twin sisters. They only weighed 1 pound 2 ounces each, & were going to be euthanized by animal control for being too small. It wasn’t easy, but I was able to save them, & adopt them on June 12th. The picture of Rose, above was taken the next day. Lilly & Rose are all over my FB page. They are now 5 months old & 6 pounds each. They are so special, & I adore them. It’s so nice to see another NYer on here. I wanted to thank you for sharing a bunch of my posts. I really appreciate that. I try to use my FB page as an information source for interesting articles about AS, PsA, & TMJ which I struggle with all of them. I also put up news on RA, Lupus, & other arthritis, too. I put up animal rights petitions too. I love animals, & believe they should be protected & have rights, too. It’s been such a pleasure meetiing & talking with you. I haven’t been feeling well, & haven’t been on FB or the Faces of AS FB Group at all today. I’ve been feeling really sick since Saturday, & spent most of yesterday & all of today in bed. My hands swelled up badly last night, so I’ve haven’t been able to type. Hopefully, you’ve been feeling well. I always tell my friends on here & on FB with AS or other autoimmune diseases, is the best & only good part of having these awful disease, is the caring, beautiful, kind, & supportive people that you meet. We all have a bond, because we all go through very similar hardships, that other people don’t understand, & can’t relate to, but we all can relate to each other, & we all support each other. I’m really happy to have met you, Kristi, I hope you find Faces, here & on FB as much as a comfort & as inspiring as I do. You’re really sweet, & I’m so happy to get know you, & talk with you more on FB. Welcome to the Faces Family!!! 🙂 Hugs, hope & ❤ -Lisa

  5. My thought when I looked at your picture was your eyes. Pretty eyes that have pain in them. Suzanne
