Lori Donzella

Face 1847

Started at age 11, misdiagnosed with Lupus at age 15, shoulder surgery at age 37, misdiagnosed with Hyperthyroidism at age 42, bed ridden at age 43 for 6 months and finally diagnosed with AS at age 44. I am now 47.

AS has its talons embedded into my body. The pain is constant but the mind remembers life before and battles to be set free.

  2. I don’t know how I stumbled upon this because I’m drunk and England just lost the in the World Cup semi finals so kinda pissed in two ways but hearing this story made me realise there’s so much more than just realisation and gunning for ridiculous things that don’t really matter. I really do hope you find a way to banish the pain and start to live a completely full life again. All the best
