Having Ehlers Danlos Syndrome sometimes feels about the equivalent of being composed of jello and wet spaghetti. Nothing stays where its supposed to. Literally every single cells in the body is floppy, so fingers are definitely an issue for many of us. I can almost guarantee that for the majority of us, writing is not only slow and painful but nearly impossible at times. FIne motor skills? What even are those? An EDSer surely doesn’t have any of those. Even typing which is far easier than writing, is painful and daunting at times. But last year I joint the poppulation of shiny zebras by getting fitted for a set of Silver Rings Splints and they are beyond magical. 

For those of you who have not heard of Silver Ring Splint, they are a company that custom makes finger splint that look like elegant pieces of jewelry. Don’t believe me? Well I can’t even tell you how many compliments I’ve received for them. Nobody even suspects that they might possibly be medical. But more importantly, they work amazing! I still ave hand pain and finger dislocations when performing fine motor skills and writing is definitely not something I look forward to but I have saved myself thousands of painful dislocations, I can open doors easier, type faster, write longer and hold objects in my hands without looking like an alien from a sic-fi movie. With the rings on my fingers actually look like fingers rather than tentacles!

The company is also family owned and the people are so sweet and helpful!

If you are having trouble with hand pain, clumsiness and dislocatiosn please check out this amazing company!

Ellers Dan lose runs in my family. where can I find stuff like that?

it bothers how ignorant people can be towards illnesses and stuff like that. Like my dad always says you can control it or it’s all in your head. my body physically can’t walk up three flights of stairs and be ok. he’s like you’re ok but you believe that you aren’t. IM NOT OKAY. I NEED YOU TO KNOW, I’m not okay.

He left me alone. I don’t know anything about him but his username. There isn’t really much anyone can do.

Are you okay? 

you can defintely get a restraining order against this person to prevent harassment which will means if he tries to contact you at all he’ll be guilty of a crime immediately. Keep all these messages as evidence and you should definitely be granted the order.

wtf is wrong with him? thirsty much?
