Many people usually don't understand the pain of the "ankylosing spondylitis." As a third stage patient( total is four stages), this disease is a genetic lesion caused by a problem with the immune system. When it attacks, multiple eroded joints in my body feel pain, even my jaw joint feel the pain, too. If I don't take medicine, I will feel the pain like I am being stabbed into the pelvis when I am walking. I could only rely on medical treatment and stretching to reduce the pain and slow down the condition aggravated. Recently, medical development has found a way to control the disease better and might find a solution. Hope the new drug could come out soon!
This illustration is a symbolic way to explain my feelings when I am sick. If you have the same disease as me, you might be able to feel this artwork.
