You guessed it. I’m sure there were some who were waiting for this. As Ehlers Danlos survivors we have plenty of dislocations. Each one of us had a different amount and different body parts that dislocate. So, for day 9 of our Countdown to an EDS Christmas we have 9 dislocating joints.
Comment what your number 9 is!
With Ehlers Danlos Syndrome there are typically a lot of medical issues and diagnoses. And with diagnoses comes medications and a lot of them. There is something for pain, for muscle spasms, vitamins your lacking, heart medications, etc. The list just goes on and on. So day ten of our Countdown to an EDS Christmas is medications.
Enjoy the EveryDay Successes!
Comment and let me know what your day ten consists of!
Most EDS patients or any patient of a chronic illness goes by the term “spoonie”. There is a story behind this but the short version is everything that we do takes a spoon or one energy if you will. On any given day we could have 15 spoons or we could have 4, there is way to guarantee your spoon count. Everyone is different. So day 11 of our Countdown to an EDS Christmas is spoons.
Let me know in the comments if you would like to hear the full version of the spoon theory!
Enjoy your EveryDay Successes!
As a zebra, we “love” to collect medical supplies and my number one collection has to be braces for just about each and every joint I have. Most zebras have a collection of braces, wraps, splints, etc. So, day 12 of the EDS Christmas countdown is 12 braces.
