I am sure you find yourself wondering what exactly a cell phone, a blizzard, a freezer and brain fog have in common.

ME!

The "evidence" frozen in place.

The “evidence” frozen in place.

 (Sorry about the rough photo.)

As many of you know I have been quite absent from the blog the past month or so.  I apologize for that and expect to begin regularly (on schedule) beginning January 2nd.

What you might not know is that I have been struggling with my own EDS, and even more time consuming (and draining) the health of my youngest daughter.   Thankfully, we are beginning to find answers and she has become more stable and stronger in the past few weeks.Continue Reading the full Article…

Get the Word Out Wednesday

Hello everyone!  I am back.

I have to apologize for being absent for the past two weeks, with everything going on in my life I did not realize it had been two weeks since I posted or checked in through anything but facebook.

Just a little update on my world.

  I know I have a “anticipated” schedule I had hope to adhere too but the recent setback of my own health and my daughters put a damper on that plan.

I will be back in force in January.

One Teenager's Response to Living WIth an Invisible Illness

One Teenager’s Response to Living With A Chronic Illness

My teenage daughter was asked to write a narration with a moral for her comp class this year.  She is a senior.  She chose to write not only about her fight to help others understand what EDS is and how it affects her everyday life but how she is not going to let her illness ruin it.

(She is definitely her momma’s girl.)

  This is her paper in it’s entirety with links added to empower others with useful knowledge.

Do Not Be Ignorant

Becca Dance photo

Once upon a time, in a not so far away land, lived a dark haired maiden.  She was your average, all around, American girl, but behind all of that was a different person that no one ever saw besides her family.  Until one day, she could not hide anymore.  She had to show herself to the world, not knowing how people would react to seeing her in the not so beautiful reality.  This is my story asking people not to judge me until they come to know me and my life.Continue Reading the full Article…
