Medical and all things EDS · Timeline - My Story · Truths of a chronic illness

Timeline of the past 8 years

Good afternoon everyone! I hope you are all enjoying this lovely Sunday!

This is just a quick update to let you all know what’s going to be happening over the next week. I have realised that a lot of you have not been with me through my entire journey of having a chronic illness, which all started 8 years ago. Therefore I intend to have daily posts over the next week, this will entail a timeline of the past 8 years and all that has been happening along the way.

I hope and pray that it gives everyone a good insight into what my life has been like, all the good and bad times over the past number of years and that it helps you to understand just how much my life has been dramatically changed in just 8 years.

I hope you all enjoy!

Today I would also like to share with you my quote of the day;

‘Courage does not always roar, sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.‘” – Mary Anne Radmacher 


With love,

  1. That’s one of my favourite quotes! It’s so true – living with EDS can make tomorrow a scary place, and it can take great courage and strength to face each day. Good luck at RNOH (I’ve been treated there since 2002, and would be happy to chat to you about it, if you like). It’s very brave of you to write a timeline of your physical changes. I think it’s really helpful for people to read, and writing it in smaller chunks makes it easier to process than one big post.

    With hugs, Jo


    1. Thank-you so much for your comment! I really appreciate that, it would be too daunting to write about it all in one post! It actually will be a tough week going down memory lane, but I’ll get there!! Thank-you for your support, I desperately need to get there. I’m deteriorating so much to the point where I can’t sit up anymore. I also have muscle complications which makes it more complex. But only 2 weeks until I go! 🙂 which doctors do you see in RNOH if you don’t mind me asking?
