Being Yourself Is More Than Enough

Posted on May 14, 2018

"After years of feeling like I need to be better, stronger, healthier, and in control, I now know I am enough." -Member of MySpondylitisTeam

Members of MySpondylitisTeam experience the burden of spondylitis physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Sometimes we strive to appear healthier than we are to avoid the stigma of chronic pain. Other times, we experience relief and support from peers who've been in our shoes.


"I'm getting out of the rat race. I'm not hiding my pain anymore. If I'm tired, I'm going to rest. Hearing from others with spondylitis has taught me that I have to prioritize ME."
-Member of MySpondylitisTeam
