Hey Crafty People!
I have hEDS.
Earlier this week I talked about some of the story surrounding my journey to diagnosis (you can check that out here) and that one of the main barriers to diagnosis is the lack of awareness & understanding of what this range of illnesses really are.
There are two websites jam packed with information about the symptoms, impact & treatment, they even have all of the diagnostic information you could take along to your Doctor.
HUGE INSTAGRAM HOP & GIVEAWAY!
I wanted to do my bit to raise awareness of the myriad of symptoms that are all too often left to progress to completely life altering levels because no-one sees that link between them all. The more awareness about this, the more likely that your Dr will have it in mind when he sees your rather epic medical notes. The more likely it is that someone with a whole host of different health problems will find the information that they need to take to their Dr.
EDS/HSD isn’t curable, but it is treatable and the earlier you receive the treatment and support you need the better your quality of life.
I invited some of my wonderful crafty friends to join me in trying to raise awareness, and the crafty community knocked it outta the park with their response!!
