A.S. Face 1743: Patty Wanger
My name is Patty Wanger, I live in Oklahoma. I’m 36 years old, after going from doctor to doctor for over 10 years, a year ago I finally found a Rheumatologist who knew exactly what to test for and he diagnosed me with Ankylosing Spondylitis. I want to be a part of your “Faces of Ankylosing Spondylitis” group. It’s time people and Doctors become more aware of this disease. AS has been slowly taking my independence from me and I have finally come to terms with no matter what medications or treatments they give or put me on, I will never have the old me back and it has taken me a long time and a lot of prayers to help me through the grieving process of losing the old me and accepting my new limitations as they come. Thank you for putting more awareness out there for all of us, I pray it continues to keep growing.
