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

  2. Oh my, I cannot imagine suffering with AS at this age. Hopefully early treatment will be helpful, best of luck sweetie.

  3. This just isn’t right, it’s bad enough getting it between your teens and mid 20’s. Not to mention, it just being one of the twins, who got it. People need to get off of there a**es and to some serious research. Cases like this should actually help them understand this a lot more. Find cases where just one twin has it, and find out if they would be interested in participating in a research study. 2 people who are supposed to be identical should be the ideal way to study our condition. And hopefully get some real answers. And not drugs that suppress our immune systems. Hopefully a real treatment or a cure.

    I sincerely hope that this progresses slowly for you, and that you are able to be as pain free as possible, for as long as you can. Stay strong and fight it. It may be hard at times, but remember, you are not a burden to others or worthless. Always remember that, because that is the one thing a lot of us tend to feel.

  4. Miss the girls
    Hugs

  5. I had it since I was 10. Only diagnosed in my late 30’s. My daughter turned 10 last week. Scares the hell outta me. Face no 1024.
