Hi everyone, brand new member and couldn’t be happier I’ve found a community of others who get it and i don’t need to over-explain everything I’m experiencing and why! I was diagnosed is 2010 after genetic testing that was requested by my obstetrician during my second pregnancy. I’ll never be able to thank him enough for identifying that I had EDS and giving me the answers I needed to the issues I’d had all my life. My geneticist at the time told me strengthening my muscles would help support the parts of me that, as he described it, ‘are more like chewing gum than a rubber band’ this has always stuck with me. In the past year things have flared and being perimenopausal has definitely had an impact. I’m so glad to have found this community, and the sub-communities to connect with other Zebras! Wishing you all happiness and health x #newmember
