My name is Robin Shaffer and I am a Face of AS too….. I was diagnosed in 2014, along with Sjogrens Syndrome diagnosed in 2012…. It has been a struggle, I am working full time still but that gets harder and harder everyday, I was such an active person, and all the pills and shots and pain have caused weight gain, and a whole honey don’t do list from my Rheumy. I am trying to stay positive but even the pope cries sometimes right? My husband and kids keep me moving and I try to smile and be kind to any and all.. Thanks for having this site it’s a tremendous help…..
