A.S. Face 2098: Ronda

Face 2098

My name is Ronda. I’m newly diagnosed at 50yo in 2019. I’ve had symptoms for at least 20 years and no one seemed to listen and would write off problems as just being depressed and overweight. It took a bout with uveitis in November 2018 to finally get to a diagnosis this past January. I’m HLA-B27 negative and labs for inflammation are within normal range. Past damage is done and I hope disease management will be successful and prevent further progression.

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

  2. We could be twins except I’m positive gene. Humira is working on blood inflammation but the damage done over 20 years is a hot mess. It’s a mental process. I was so angry about suffering wo diagnosis , it took years to get to acceptance. Still a work in process! Good luck I’m 1765 I think!
