Michael Smith

My name is Michael Smith I am 39 and live in Las Vegas NV. I have been suffering from A.S. since I was 17. I am fused in my sacroiliac joints and the majority of my vertebrae and walk like I am an 80 year old. Recently a friend’s daughter asked me I walked the way I did? I answered her and said it is because I enjoyed watching the ant races! We both had a good laugh and moved along to some other topic. That has been the key for me, never letting it define me or who I am and never dwelling on it. This is what has allowed me to move on from the anger and depression that the pain brings to everyday life.
