    Axial Spondyloarthritis - 10 Years On, The Lost Tribe

    Axial Spondyloarthritis - 10 Years On, The Lost Tribe

    This is an incredible abstract from 2020 out of the UK that looks at the time to diagnosis and how that 8-10 year timeframe for a diagnosis creates a whole group of people lost in medical limbo trying to figure out what is wrong with them. Here is a link to the https://academic.oup.com/rheumatology/article/59/Supplement_4/iv25/5923444 (abstract).

Thank you for hope

I have been listening to this podcast ever since I was diagnosed in January 2022. I have been feeling so down about not being able to take care of my two children under two. You mentioned in the podcast today that your children won’t know what they are missing out on and won’t resent you for it. I can’t tell you how much I needed to hear that. I have been in pain their whole lives and limited to what I can do. Thankfully they will not know me any other way and will love me for what I can do. Thanks for giving me this much needed perspective!

A great companion to your journey with AS

This podcast is a great little snippet and additional tool in your toolbox if you’re someone who’s dealing with alkalizing spondonysis. It’s so nice to know that I’m not alone and also be able to get advice from someone who has a lot more experience than I do think it’s been only nine months since I got diagnosed.Helping others feel like they’re not alone is why I podcast personally and it’s nice to get that back from this podcast, so thank you Jason!

Everything You Want To Understand & More

This podcast is the perfect addition to an AS diagnosis! I'm so happy to have found it almost as soon as I left the Rheumatologist's office. I've learned so much more about the disease, potential therapies, and ways to improve how you live. Jayson devises a fantastic podcast combination of learning from industry experts, informing his audience of news-worthy arthritis stories and sharing an abundance of interviews from regular people who are in the same medical boat - letting you know that you're not alone! Thanks so much for all you do, Jayson!
