I've been Paltrowed

Yeah, so I was in excruciating pain on Thursday and Friday. My back just wouldn't shut up. "ANKYLOSING SPONDILYTIS," it kept yelling at me. "FUCKING ANKYLOSING SPONDILYTIS!"

I figured I'd try acupuncture again, and was a little surprised when the good doctor decided to throw cupping into the mix. I had no idea it would leave these purple donut-shaped bruises all over my back (a la Ms. Paltrow, above).

Did it help? I felt a little worse on Saturday (the bruises themselves don't hurt at all). But Sunday and today have been tentatively better. We'll see by the end of the week.

A.S is a major pain have had it since 16 now 43 no doctors could help except with meds 26 pills a day for 25 years but now i take few painkillers when needed and excercise keeps it at bay and have played A.F.L footy now for 2 and half years. So there is hope of a end to it
