In this short bonus video, we turn the camera around and interview the face of the This AS Life Live! series, Dan Reynolds. Dan shares his insights on how the series has affected him and what he’s learned in the last two seasons.
Richard: Dan, thanks so much for everything you’ve done for the spondylitis community. You’ve been so helpful in so many ways and I can’t express all the gratitude I have for you, but….
Richard: One thing I’d like to know is how the series has affected you personally.
Dan: I’m now part of this community of people who are a very specific breed. I mean, we’re all diverse and we live different lifestyles and we do different things, but one thing is true with everyone that has AS and that is that you are a strong human being.
You have dealt with chronic physical pain on a daily basis for years for people, decades for people. It requires you to have a certain amount of appreciation of life, and health, in the moments that you have it.
And, there’s a real beauty to this community, and so it has changed me, absolutely. Becoming part of this community that I wasn’t before, I was just this guy, alone, who had AS, and now I’m part of this family.
