thisaslife Ankylosing spondylitis is, to the outside world, an invisible illness, but this does not make it any less serious or painful. How many times have you been told "...but you don't look sick"? #ThisASLife 2d

_lalinda_ "Ogni tempesta ha una sua fine.
Una volta che tutti gli alberi sono stati sradicati, una volta che tutte le case sono state demolite, il vento si calmerà, le nuvole se ne andranno, la pioggia si fermerà, il cielo si schiarirà in un istante.
E solo allora, in quei momenti di quiete dopo la tempesta, capiamo chi è stato abbastanza forte da sopravvivere.” #iononmollo
"There's an end to every storm. Once all the trees have been uprooted, once all the houses have been ripped apart, the wind will hush. The clouds will part. The rain will stop. The sky will clear in an instant. And only then, in those quiet moments after the storm, do we learn who was strong enough to survive it." #bestrong #staystrong #quotes #nevergiveup #instastronger #spoonwarrior #fibromyalgia #chronicpain #autoimmune #chronicillness #spondiloartrite #spondylitis #autoimmunedisease #spondyloarthritis #autoimmunelife #dolorecronico #backpain #fusedspine #ankylosingspondylitis #ankylosing #degenerative #systemic #inflammation #fibrowarrior #fibromialgia #spoontheory #spoonlife #greysquote

thisaslife Ankylosing spondylitis is not a 'one-size-fits-all' condition - it affects everyone differently. What does it mean to you? Share it in the comments. #ThisASLife 4d

hmstyles2122 No one seems to understand - not even some of my friends or family, it is hard because hardly anyone knows what it is, I've had to change my life so much in the last 2 years because of it. There are over 30 different types of arthritis & its effects are so different. Everyone seems to think there's only one type, the best thing I've done is learn about it & how to deal with it #athritissucks #arthritisfoundation #athritisawareness #athritisresearchuk #ankylosingspondylitis #ankylosingspondylitisawareness #ankylosing 1w

essextowindsor BADDAYSo went to the doctors as my left eye was hurting red swollen bit blurry so thought just a normal eye infection & expected to be prescribed with eye drops but I was wrong! Because of my back condition Ankylosing Spondylitis, they are worried as it can cause uveitis/eye inflammation so I have got the emergency eye clinic at 8.30am tomorrow to see a eye doctor. My blurred vision is slowly going but the pain is getting worse so I'm worried as grrrrr which means I can't sleep pray this weekend is a good one!! #bloggers #lbloggers #pbloggers #health #eye #infection #uveitis #ankylosing #spondylitis #inflammation #pain #blurred #doctors #knackered #needabreak #colitis 2w

saraahnyland Dette er Mr. Bechterew, min demon. Han er en stor del av meg. En god stund nå har det ikke vært noe Sarah, kun Bechterew. Han er i meg, og gjør akkurat hva han vil, når han vil. En del av leddene mine har han forandret på, og fortsetter gladelig med det. Utallige leger har prøvd å gjøre det de kan. Proppa meg full av alt mulig rart, piller, sprøyter you name it. Og den siste måneden nå har jeg vært konstant rusa for å ha han litt på avstand. Flere ganger har tanken vært der; nå er det nok, jeg orker ikke mer.
Alle drømmer, mål og gleder blir tatt ifra meg. Utmattelse er en stor del som følger med. Litt fysisk aktivitet resulterer i så mye søvn og hvile etterpå at det er en skam! 21 år gammel. Ungdom. -----------------------------------
This is Mr. Bechterew. He is a big part of me, of my life. He is my demon. For awhile now he has taken over my body completely. He does whatever he wants, he haunts me 24/7. He has allready caused damage to my joints. Every dream and passion he's taking from me. I'm fighting the best I can. No medicine is helping, because I get sick from using it. You can't see him, but now after 12 years of torture, my body shows what he has done to me. What he always will be doing.

#55-year-old ssenior army officer “#Edwin” healed
#ankylosing spondylitis within a year just by
