My goodness, it is so reassuring to read that I'm not the only one living with a not "normal life". I had decided I most certainly had done something wrong until I stumbled upon this thread. We are still in the process of trying to get my meds under control, but I'm definitely no where near "normal".

Tell the people closest to you. You will need some support. It's 'ok' if they totally don't "get it" because they just won't completely understand if they never have AS. If the folks closest to you are at least willing to listen, you've got a good team, in my opinion. Wishing you the best! smile
