A.S. Face 1164: Tonya Riste

Face 1164My name is Tonya Riste and I’m 38 yrs old. I am a mother of a 15 year old daughter and an 11 year old son from Chicago Illinois. They are what keep me going everyday!! I was diagnosed with AS back in 2007 and currently take Methotrexate and receive Remicade infusions to keep it under control.  I am thankful for all the information everybody has shared on FB throughout the years about AS because it has helped me better understand the disease as well as the reassurance that I am not alone. I may not comment or post but I am always reading and learning.
