Living with Axial Spondyloarthrtitis can come with so many negatives that it is sometimes easy to overlook that it can also come with a few blessings too
For me, it has taught me how to look after myself a lot better. I see my condition as a constant reminder to keep myself as health as I can. Before I was diagnosed I didn't pay too much attention to what I was putting in my body so ironically my illness has in some ways made me healthier than ever before!
I also think that it has helped me become a more compassionate person. I think everything I have been through has made me realise that there are many things people can go through that aren't necessarily visible so I like to check up on people a lot more and am more understanding.
And not to leave out the fact that It has allowed me to connect with so many amazing people in this community too!
Have you guys found any positives that have come from your condition?
