In this blog, Louise shares her experience of managing Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) while pursuing her career. Diagnosed in 2019, AS introduced unforeseen work challenges, prompting her to seek a better equilibrium. The pandemic's remote work offered a brief respite, yet returning to the office brought new obstacles. During a work hiatus, Louise discovered Yoga for AS, which provided solace and effective stretching techniques. Collaborating with her employer and NASS, she implemented adjustments like flexible hours and self-care routines. Her story underscores resilience and the importance of community support in overcoming AS's impact on her professional path.
