As a transformational life coach, Scottsdale-based counselor and entrepreneur Peter Winslow helps his clients achieve personal breakthroughs. In addition to managing his Scottsdale private coaching firm, GoldMind, LLC, Peter Winslow has written a book on coping with ankylosing spondylitis (AS), a debilitating form of arthritis he was diagnosed with at the age of 20.
AS is a condition that causes a fusion of the body’s vertebrae. The condition is usually diagnosed in early adulthood and can cause significant challenges in patients’ work and relationships.
People with AS may need to educate their family members, friends, and coworkers about their condition. Experts also emphasize the importance of connecting with other people living with AS by joining a support group.
In addition to in-person support groups, a number of online forums are managed by AS organizations. On the forums, people can share their experiences and treatment options and find emotional support.
