Night waking, legs aching.
Bendy thumbs impress my chums.
Start to feel sharp pain in heel.
Teachers now see I'm failing P.E.
Dislocating jaw, always sore.
"What do you expect? You're having your teeth rearranged.
And besides, you have a Low Articular Eminence."
Nothing can calm searing pain in arm.
"Repetitive Strain Injury."
Everything seems to crack; increasing pain in back.
"Well, you're not a teenager any more!"
Tripped over own feet, banged elbow in street.
Small joints dislocating, everything else aching.
"Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. Yes, it explains a lot."
Music teacher, student, mother and wife.
An achy EDSer leading a full and busy life.
"A serious case of Determination
Accompanied by a liberal does of Bloody-Mindedness!"
