Face 1542

November 6, 1984 – May 21, 2018

I don’t have much of a story.  To be honest, I only found this site because I am not in a great psychological state.  Thankfully the site has shown I’m not alone.
I’ve been told I have a bad back for years.  They only found the AS two years ago because they were scanning for cancer (which is a whole different story).   So far I’ve been very disappointed in my medical care and hopefully I can give them a shove based on the knowledge I have gained from other people’s stories.
The above picture was taken this time last year.  I could stand, walk, etc.  Now, I can’t stand without two canes and extreme pain.  I have a wheelchair and can’t sit in it for long again due to pain.
I don’t see much light at the end of the tunnel at the moment.  This won’t inspire anyone, it just felt good to get it out.  And thank you to the others who have posted on here.

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

  2. Darren: Was only googling my name and saw your story… not the best situation but I’m hoping that something has given you more hope since you posted this more than a year ago!! I actually am of Scottish descent and hope to travel there some year soon to make linkages… I ‘ll leave you with a quote that’s my favorite from Albert Einstein: You can look at things two ways, as if nothing is a miracle, or as if everything is a miracle! This quote has carried me through many tribulations in my life, which have been more than a few!! take care Darren J McPhee (Nova Scotia, Canada)
