Just thought I'd join this forum as just been diagnosed with AS (Ankylosing Spondilitis). I'm married, a mother of 2 daughters in early twenties and not long turned the big five 'o'. :grin:

    Welcome Susie,
    As a relatively newbie myself I can assure you that you will be welcomed with open arms from such warm friendly supportive and funny members. The support and advice on here is incredible - so if you have any problems or queries there is always someone who has the experience of what you are going through or advice at hand. Welome also to the 50's club - I am in it too although a bit more advanced - 54 today!! where did those years go?

    Hello Susy50, it's nice to meet you. I am afraid I don't know much about AS but there are one or two about on here who do. Most people hang about on LWA or CC (living with arthritis or chitchat) so any meds/treatments questions go on the former, anything else on the latter! I hope to see your name around the forums. DD
