Firstly, pardon my ignorance on all issues AS. I'm rather new to this.
I'm in a relatively new relationship with a woman who has recently been diagnosed with AS. She's been perfectly open about it, and we've discussed the illness in depth. She's a positive, capable, and courageous woman, and i know she's perfectly capable of dealing with AS by herself, but i'd like to do my part to help her, too.
I'm looking for advice from those with more experience than me as to how best i can support her.
For AS sufferers - what do you require, or desire, from your partner in terms of the care, assistance, and emotional support they give you? Is there anything your partner does for you that you find particular helpful?
For partners of AS sufferers - what actions, both physical and mental, have you found to be a particular help for your partner? I've read many stories of sufferers falling into depression, becoming introverted and distancing themselves from their interests. Is this common, and what might be effective in avoiding this?
Thanks in advance for any information or advice. It's greatly appreciated.
