A.S. Face 2188: Bianca



My name is Bianca. I was diagnosed 6 years ago. For 6 years I’ve been wandering in the AS wilderness of chronic pain, fatigue, chronic iritis, searching for help, trying every treatment I could find, searching for personal understanding, searching for support. 😭😫😩😖😡😢

Last August- feeling completely exhausted, fearing for my future, crying for my life, my health, for wellness, for my children, for my marriage – I sat under the stars at 3am (not surprisingly pain had me up at 3am!) and I begged and begged and begged God for help.

And I saw a shooting star.✨ 🙏🏼

From that point my journey completely changed. I was referred to a new rheumatologist and physiotherapist (who work together and are amazing!), found excellent psychological support through counselling, went back to uni to study a Masters in Public Health and started Humira. Humira completely works for me and has changed my life.

I honestly feel I’ve experienced a miracle.

I have never been so humbled as I have been during my journey with AS. It keeps me humble and grateful to be given the chance to enjoy life and live everyday. Pain is the hardest taskmaster and I’m sending hope and ❤ to everyone with AS.

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

  2. Welcome, sorry you have had all the physical pain as well as the psychological pain you have suffered. Hope you have a lot of success with your treatment. I have been on several and everytime I I get settled with one medication insurance changes and forces me to use another. I have recently started Humira and hope it can work for me too.
    Good luck my friend and thanks for sharing.
