Gail Whitley - Hope & Apples

My picture is meant to represent the ups and downs of living with  Anklyosing Spondylitis. It is like a roller coaster ride that you were forced on and one that never stops!

I am from a small town in Illinois, United States of America. I am a Wife, Mother and Grandmother.

I was diagnosed 24 years ago and have been through, too many things to mention. I have learned alot of things since joining ASAP, about a year ago. The best thing I have discovered is that I am not alone!! Just knowing the fact that I am not alone has been a great help in dealing with this disease. So, I don’t really no what else to say that all of you don’t already know. I have some really bad days when I just want to toss in the towel, so to speak. But, the people I love and that love me are what keep me going.
