I hope that by sharing my personal experiences of life with chronic illness and disability, others may feel less alone in their own circumstances. I have been diagnosed with the incurable illness Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), as well as Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (PoTS), Mast Cell Activation Disorder (MCAD), Gastroparesis and Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).
