I was diagnosed with A.S. about 5 years ago and every day truly has been a battle. I’ve taken my share of meds but in the end the only pain management that really worked was no meds at all. I have suffered from Siatica also which resulted in my 3 year old daughter having to help me and get the phone. 😦 But we only live once Right so I’ve recently made a promise to myself and to my daughter. Live each and every day and do not look back. Dwelling on what you can not do only makes it worse and drives many into depression. Just because we have A.S. does not mean it is the end. Honestly, its the end of one chapter and the beginning of a new one. So take hold and ride with the wind. We will all get through this! Together we all can spread awareness and hope for the cure, but don’t ever forget to Live each and every moment!
