A.S. Face 1025: Robert Yeomans
My name is Robert Yeomans, and I live in Pownal, VT
Well first off, when I was told that I had AS, my doctor, also told me that I should have been diagnosed with it, at least 10 years ago. He also told me that I had osteoarthritis, in my neck. I have also been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, and bipolar disorder. My life started going downhill when I was about 28. Been fighting with things for quite a while, not ever really doing too well. Wasn’t ever really able to hold down a job for very long, with a few exceptions. Had some bad relationships, and one that I should have gotten out of years ago, especially since she didn’t believe that I was in pain. Fortunately, I now have a wonderful, fiancee, who knows everything that is going on with me, and believes all of it. I’m still struggling, but things are better for me now, even though the pain is getting worse. I’m happy with my life for the most part, just wish other things could be better. And I’m still working with my doctors, and getting new doctors, and will hopefully come up with some sort of solution to hopefully make it so I can enjoy life more than I do now.
