Diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis since 2006, when just turned 24 years old. I was very demoralized and could not understand why I have rheumatic pains bigger than my grandmother 70 years old. I did not understand why I can not go, just do anything wrong to anyone. Slowly, slowly I began to understand the disease and help doctors started to move again.But my secret to healthy aging, was family. Therefore we understand that positive thinking can help me more than any drug, and how you can have a more positive attitude as if in a nice family environment?
