Paul Sharrock

I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis and Peripheral Arthritis in November 2005 due to this invisible illness I was suffering since 1996 with every symptom going ! I am  37 yrs old but the day i was told by my Rheumatologist it was like an entire world of weight had been lifted , Also spent 3 weekly occasions having intense treatment and now I am taking a lot of DAILY medication which started to help me start learning to manage my condition , I was sick of hearing the same things off family and friends (oh its just age ) !! I know that every single day is different for everyone who has A.S , I am a year into injecting anti-tnf treatment and is helping but was a struggle to go through all the process`s monthly blood monitoring yawn but i get to see my new family (rheumatologogy team) who help plus fiends who truly understand living with a debilitating disease that needs raising awareness is a must !..Stand tall and be strong together we can fight this A.S ! Much appreciated Paul 🙂  x
