A.S. Face 1267: Michelle Berish Salas
Hi my name is Michelle and I have A.S. I’ve had symptoms of A.S. For 4 years, I’ve been to orthopedic specialist and chiropractors they kept blowing me off like it was nothing. My husband now has had to dress me help me shower, watch me fall over, climb on walls just to make it to the bathroom. It was so painful at times that I just wanted to give in stay on the couch. I’ve always been active my family are bowlers. I’ve struggled over and over again. Some how I found away to keep going. My sister came up for thanksgiving. That was truly a thanksgiving to give thankful for. She explained to me A.S.(we had never met before) and that she had the same thing! But she wasn’t positive for the HB-127. She begged me to go get checked. Finally I did and got the test results back 3 weeks which I was positive :(right before I got married. (March 8, 2014) this is a hard diagnosis for anyone much less right before you get married. They have put me on humria now and I’m now working out 5 days a week. The shots are painful but all and all everything is getting better. Somehow some way I will find away to keep going, keep fighting for what you want! You are the most powerful person in your life. Only you can make a change. Little by little my world is coming together and so will yours!
Thanks for all your support together we will find away.
