Tips for Friends with AxSpA?

What tips would you give a friend living with axial spondyloarthritis (AxSpA)?

  1. Some tips I would offer to a friend suffering from spondyloarthritis:

    This disease is very individualized - what works for one person may not work for another. There are so many different therapies and treatments. If you don't have success with one, try another, then another. Don't give up. Something will work. Find your therapeutic plan and use it religiously.

    Find support - to help you throughout your day, through treatments, through doctor visits, with meals, with mental health, financially, with physical health, advice to control pain, etc. You can never have enough support, whether it is someone next to you to lean on or finding financial support to pay for medications - find it, it's out there.

    Find your people and know you are not alone. We are here to support each and every individual suffering through the pain of axial and peripheral spondyloarthritis - we care! ♥
