My Father and I returned from our three week visit to Washington D.C. and Virginia at the beginning of December. The three weeks were filled with many post-op appointments, check-ups, physical therapy rehabilitation, vision therapy rehabilitation and even a White Tie Gala event! To say it was a busy time for us is an understatement – only now I am beginning to feel the exhaustion and experiencing a ‘flare up’.
May is dedicated to Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) Awareness month, when everyone across the world with or without Ehlers-Danlos can come together and help spread awareness to the medical world of this invisible disease, help educate the public, and help donate towards further research to find a cure and understanding for this varied “zebra striped” community. Please click: ‘Ehlers-Danlos UK’ Charity to see how you can help contribute to “making our invisible visible”. With no action, there will be no change. There are still many people who are suffering from EDS but are undiagnosed/misdiagnosed due to lack of awareness in the medical and public community. You can help change this for the better by sharing my story and telling people about what it is. Do something positive to make change happen!
