Championing one person’s daily fight with their AS | This AS Life

This article is a little different from some of the others you’ll read on This AS Life. We normally offer tips and advice on life with ankylosing spondylitis. This time, we just wanted to share Peter’s story with you.


Other than Peter’s name, everything else in the video below is a genuine account of his life with AS.

A life with AS doesn’t have to be one you have to live with on your own. This AS Life – and a countless other charities and assocations – are there to offer support and advice.


Go to our Find Support section to see what help available near where you live. Tell us what you think of Peter’s story on Twitter @ThisASLife. Or just keep reading: head to our homepage and see the range of articles This AS Life has written for people like Peter – and the people who care about them.



This article was written by one of the resident experts at A social site helping the whole AS community to: Learn. Share. Inspire. Discuss.
