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

  2. Wow,
    What a story.I had the same reaction as you when my doctor said”Ankylosing Spondylitis”.I made a small joke about the strange sounding words.He was very dry,and did not respond to my remark.I wish I could be more like you,in that I feel like it has me.Its just that when I try to do something,I end up on my butt in severe pain.I am afraid of the pain now,and don’t do anything.But I will try to do as you do “own it,not let it own me”.
    Thanks Abdul
