Jennifer Gravouia

My name is Jennifer Gravouia I am 32 an I have had AS for 7 1/2 yrs now .. Like all my fellow ASers I struggle with the most simple things day to day that normal people take for granted r look at me an see nothing wrong on the outside an say u look perfectly fine but fail to realize on the inside how much pain I feel that has taken so much from me in what should be the best yrs of my life enjoying my 1 an 7 yr Ol girls an doing what normal mothers do … Instead I have to say wait baby I can’t play right now r ask my oldest to help me up cause I can’t pull my self up with out help at time r lift up my baby without my other daughters help … I’m 32 yrs old an I cannot do what all my other friends / family r people my own age do that I know if they could walk a mile in my shoes for a month r 2 they would not take there Health an pain free life for granted ….. I can only hope for a cure one day … Hope is all I have an it’s the one thing AS can’t take from me …

  1. Dear Jennifer,
    Thank you for sharing your story with us. I for one think this picture should be the poster child for AS. I love it. 🙂
    Sincerely Cookie
