Joanne Mac Neal

My name is Joanne Mac Neal.  I was misdiagnosed for years before I finally found out I had ankylosing spondylitis.  The low point was when I could not throw a baseball with my son when he was younger.  After trying every drug known to treat it with no success I found Enbrel and was doing well on that until recently.  I am now getting Remicade infusions to help with the chronic flares of iritis/uvietis.  I was able to dance with my son at his wedding on New Year’s Eve and have been enjoying the last 9 years with my husband.  I changed careers and am now a CNA at a local nursing facilities taking care of those who can’t do for themselves.  I have AS…AS does not have me.
