Screw New Year’s Resolutions

Because the year is new and stuff, millions, nay, billions, of people around the world will promise to hit the gym, stop nagging, do better at work. “What’s your resolution?” someone will slur at you around their seventeenth weak gin and tonic as his metallic purple NYE!!!!! crown slumps over his ear. “Blah blah blah,” you respond as no one listens or believes you’ll actually stick to your goal of blahing.

What’s my resolution? Nothing. That shit don’t fly with me. That’s why I’m biting my thumb at our Gregorian NYE and reviving this blog three days early!

Now I can’t promise I’ll post on a regular basis. I might forget about its existence again for another year, but I’ll tell you what. If you subscribe and you tell your friends about it so they might subscribe, you’ll get an email every time I post. You can click on the link, and I promise I’ll only give you my best stuff every time.

Check out my past posts for funsies in the meantime.

I’ve got a drawer full of (digital) drafts that I’m ready to unleash on y’all so get ready for some brand new ankylosing spondylitis fun!!!


I’m back, bitches!

  1. Im so glad your are back. I was diagnosed with AS in 2008 after 9 years of bouncing from 3 rheumatologist, 2 general practitioners and 1 hand specialist that asked me how my marriage was. I won’t even go into the laundry list of meds I tried w/out success.

    I discovered your blog earlier this year and read every post. Some were so hilarious I read them out loud to my husband. I’m going to have to revisit them whilst I await the arsenal of posts stashed in your drawer. Bring it on sistah!


    • Hi Sister Sue!

      You made my day! Thank you so much for reading the blog and sharing it with your husband!

      How are your symptoms? Find any relief?

      How did you find my blog?

      Thank you so much! I can’t wait to publish some more posts for you!


  2. I found your blog by just goggleing “AS blogs”. When I saw the name in the list of results, I knew you were a kindred spirit.

    I’m in the process of getting my symptoms under control again. Back in May my rheumatologist whose last name is House…I kid you not, convinced me to try Remicade infusions. House felt my symptoms might decrease more by changing from Enbrel. So I said I would give it 6 months to see if it was better than Enbrel. Started in June by mid September my liver function was abnormal so much so I had to have an ultrasound on the right upper quad of liver and the rest entire abdominal cavity. (Ultrasound was normal) My symptoms were basically the same on Remicade as when I was Enbrel so I decided it wasn’t worth continuing Remicade. House okayed me resuming Enbrel but I chose to withhold my meds until my liver function was in normal range. So my first Enbrel shot was last Monday…2nd was today. And let me just say 3 months with no meds sucked!!! It has been 5 yrs since I’ve felt that bad. I think after a couple more doses I should be back to my “normal ” state.

    Sorry for such a long response but explaining AS is never brief. I’m looking forward to your upcoming posts….my husband is too.


    • I’m so glad I popped up!

      Wow! I’m glad they were keeping an eye on your liver before it got REALLY out of hand, and I’m glad it’s back to normal!

      Good luck! I hope your recovery is quick!
