A.S. Face 1134: Tammy Daughtrey

Face 1134

“Life is only a mindset… The outcome is up to you”

My name is Tammy Daughtrey. I live in Saint Clair Shores, MI. I was diagnosed with AS three years ago. I feel like I am one of the luckiest people alive because I have a wonderful support system of friends and family. My husband and son are are my real life angels! I not only have AS but also MCTD. Due to this I can no longer take Rx’s or any other medication because my liver has taken the brunt of the MCT. I use natural meds now and the difference has been amazing. I still hurt and have flares but they are not as severe as they used to be. There are so many that have no idea what AS is. I, like everyone else on here, want to raise awareness and hopefully help others with this debilitating disease. May everyone have a blessed day and “Kick AS, don’t let it kick you”

  1. Dear Tammy,
    Thank you so much for sharing your story with us.
    Sincerely Cookie

  2. Tammy, just LOVE your attitude and the picture really shows it! My daughter has full blown AS, but both the boys and have the Undifferentiated version, which does attack much of the connective tissues. Welcome to the group!

  3. Tammy, what is MCTD?
    Also, I am interested to hear more about your natural therapies – – – I don’t want to take any meds and am trying to keep symptoms at bay with diet & exercise.
