Topic: Life Hacks for Spondies

Welcome to Spring. Welcome to spring cleaning, gardening … and maybe trying to do too much! That can mean trouble. So, what do you do to prevent that? Do you have a secret for doing laundry without having a flare? Or what about just sitting at a desk? How about washing dishes? That can be a challenge. Come swap ideas with others. You may learn a few things you never thought of.

About Iain McDonald, The Woodland's Support Group Leader

Iain and his wife Jane have lived in The Woodlands for over 23 years and have been part of The Woodlands AS support group since its inception in 2008. He retired from Anadarko Petroleum in 2015.

Iain has had SpA for about 50 years, first showing up as iritis. Ten years later he was finally diagnosed. He is a big advocate of staying active to ease the symptoms of SpA. He recommends everyone find an activity they can handle and keep at it. He really enjoys the camaraderie of the SAA Support Group. It’s a fun time of learning and encouragement.
