my name is Bobbi Jo Krusmark. I was diagnosed with AS in June of 2010. My lower half of my body swelled up overnight and I spent 2 1/2 weeks in the hospital going through many many blood tests and mris to find out what was going on. In that 2 1/2 weeks I was on 100mg of prednisone as well as many other drugs. I couldn’t move it hurt so bad. Since being diagnosed I have gone from feeling sorry for myself to being very angry and now to realizing that AS doesn’t have me. I have it and I am still going to enjoy my life. It had been a tough struggle but I now enjoy many new hobbies and have been lucky to have the family and friends that I do whom have been there to support and help me. I now am much happier and look forward to meeting many new people and being able to help in any way I can. Thank you for your page and your time.
