        @Monkeymom hi! I just joined the Alike app, and noticed we are similar in age and condition. I was diagnosed with AS in April of this year, but have had symptoms for quite a while. I was also just diagnosed with ADD. How are you doing with your AS? Did you choose to start a medication?

      Hi there! How are you feeling now? It's some big news to handle so take your time to adjust and tell us if you started any medications and how it's going so far. Be well!

      sounds silly but staying in motion helps keep everything lubed up in your bones

      That's great to know. May I ask your age and how long you have had this?
