A.S. Face 2159: Scott Brauer

My name is Scott Brauer, I have had symptoms and most likely AS since my late teens. I just did not have the medical team to put it all together.

I am from upstate New York , and I’m blessed to be married to my best friend, high school sweetheart, and caregiver Pam. I’ve led a fairly robust life and I’m a very busy hard worker. I work as a school teacher and most days can still fake it till I make it. I am also a Christian youth pastor and a fairly effective, fisherman and fisher of men.

A diagnosis finally came about 2 years ago after being tested for everything from a MS to Lupus to WOW that’s weird. I chalked up many of my injuries and weaknesses up to just simply working too hard and being hard on my body. I pray each day for my brothers and sisters that suffer from the BS that AS is.
I would say my biggest struggle is accepting the me that in my older years can no longer push past the pain to do what God needs me to do, to His honor and on His behalf.

Again please hear that I pray for a less pain day for all of you each night…peace to all my peeps!

New York, United States of America

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

  2. Happy to meet you Scott. Just the thought of someone praying for me brings tears to my eyes.
    Someone I don’t even know. I can’t believe the varying degree A.S. has. I’m almost 60 and there’s no way I could be as active as you even IN MY YOUNGER DAYS !
    I need to put my FACE on this website but I don’t want to just leave a picture of myself or tell my never ending horror story. Days/nights are so hard.
    I live in Wisconsin. Life just really seems bleaker the older I get. Your lucky you have a very understanding wife. Thank you for your prayers. I’ll certainly keep you and the rest in mine ,as I have since finding Cookies wonderful website.
