Nice work. What are you studying? I went to the student exchange information lecture last semester and it sounds like it would be an awesome experience. The students that had done it couldn't recommend it highly enough. Just by coincidence the student who did the main talk had done his exchange in Norway and said it was amazing there.

Thanks a lot for the replies!! I obviously still have to get accepted into the exchange programme which may prove difficult if I am not a full time student but like you say Cemc there is probabaly a way around it! A year is also a long time a way with AS but I'm hoping that I won't be too much worse.

In other news, I have been approved for Humira treatment. I'm quite pleased about this and hoping to see positive results!

Yay Seb! I know of another ASer in Auckland who has had success on Humira. I hope it will work well for you too. That is fantastic news smile.

You are a rock star, Seb! So so so so so happy and excited for you! It will be an awesome experience!I also highly recommend getting yourself positioned to do something that enables you to work for yourself, or be in a consulting or free lance position.

I know you're going to achieve all that you dream of, and have a wildly happy life, despite your AS.


Iritis first diagnosed in 1991, presently recurrent and steroid resistant.
Tested HLA B27 positive in 1996.
AS diagnosed October of 2011.

Putting most of my eggs in the NSD and exercise basket, using only TENS, massage, heat and ice, and NSAIDS (sparingly) for pain. Drops for iritis as flare necessitates. Looking back I feel I would have been diagnosed with AS years ago, if I had found a rheumy earlier than 2011.

Congrats! I hope the Humira works for you. I think if you can study for a year abroad you should do it no matter what the AS is doing. I dropped out of university after one year and now, many years later, regret that decision and the lost opportunity to study abroad. I was a violin player and studied German and was going to study in Vienna.
