Beginner's Mind - Not Knowing It All When Living with Spondylitis

Posted on July 27, 2018


"The moment I received my official diagnosis, I dropped all my assumptions about spondylitis. It was so freeing." -Member of MySpondylitisTeam

Living with a chronic condition can be difficult and even a burden, but also an opportunity to rid yourself of what you think you know.
