Tanya Rooney

Face 1399My name is Tanya Rooney age 39 living in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada.
I started experiencing symptoms at age 17, but wan’t diagnosed with AS until age 27. I am in need of a new hip due to Osteoarthritis which is apparently due to all the flare ups over the years from the AS. I live as “normal” as I can, but often feel lonely and frustrated by this disease. I’m glad you started all this as I think a lot of people need the support. It’s hard for people in our lives to understand when they don’t have the daily pain.
