How far are you away from a hospital? she asked. And so began what would ultimately be my life with Ankylosing Spondylitis, also known as AS... AS literally impacts millions of American lives, yet is a disease very few people have heard of, let alone understand. Mention cancer to someone and they inevitably say, Oh! Say Ankylosing Spondylitis to that same person and theyll say, Huh? While the lack of knowledge of AS is understandable, it leads to misunderstandings and, ultimately, frustrations for not only the millions of sufferers AS but their friends, family and acquaintances. What follows is a brief journey through Ankylosing Spondylitis. It is intended for both the sufferers of AS and their loved ones, and is an abridged version of what Ive experienced, what it is, what sufferers say and - ultimately - how it has made me a better person. It is a story of information, frustration and - ideally - hope. Authors note: This is a self-published guide and it is succinct (youll read in approximately 30 minutes) and there is a typo or two- Ive priced it the lowest Amazon will allow - the goal isnt to make money but to share my experience for other people impacted by AS. I highly recommend reading the Introduction before purchasing the book. Thank you!
