My name is Aerilyn and I was diagnosed with AS in 2014. It took 8 years of medical barriers to get a diagnosis. I’m a University Graduate, Child and Youth Practitioner, and a Disability Consultant. I want people to know that there is no shame in having Ankylosing Spondylitis and that it’s ok to ask for support whenever it is needed and that it’s ok to use whatever assistive device whether it be a cane, rollator, wheelchair, ect because it can improve your quality of life significantly. Be patient and kind with yourself, and you are your own best advocate.
