A.S. Face 1633: Jenny Bird

Face 1633

My name is Jenny Bird, I am 42 years old and I was diagnosed with AS almost 3 years ago after years of being undiagnosed and multiple orthopedic surgeries to try to “fix” some of my problems. I used to think I was superwoman, worked fulltime at a job I loved, always had a spotless home and took very good care of my family. This disease has definitely changed my life and I have to remind myself every day I am doing the best I can and there are reasons out of my control that I cannot do as much as I used to and that my house being less than spotless nowadays only bothers me. I’d never heard of AS before my diagnosis and read and learn more about it every day. I will be starting remicade in a few weeks and am praying it will be my miracle fix. Look to your support groups for the help and understanding you probably will not get from those who do not have this disease. It’s helped me so much to realize I am not alone.
