The Malleable Mom

Patient Leader

My children and I have EDS. I was chronically ill and undiagnosed for 30+ years, and fell through every Western & Alternative Medicine crack until my children became symptomatic. I worked as a Peds Nurse for 10 years until my migraines became too debilitating to continue working outside the home. Now I dedicate myself to writing and blogging to help other people cope with their chronic illness through laughter and good information, which is lacking. I find that no matter what the cause of the illness, there are many similarities: lack of control, time management, pain, and the spoon theory. We are stronger together. I often share wisdom "with a shot of vodka," so don't take me too seriously!
