Helloooo to anyone who finds this page!
I’m new to all of this and thought I would give it a go!! My CBT counseller told me the best way to deal with the million and one things running around in your head is to write it down! So I tried to keep a diary but because im dislexic and have a short attention span i gave up on that idea pretty quick 😳 but let’s face the main fact here! I love using my phone and I love using the Internet so this seems allot more promising!!! 😄
My name is Steph, I’m 26 and live in West London, UK… I am a volunteer film maker and also a face painter… There are a hundred things I could tell you about my self right now but I think it’s best to let things roll out naturally and it will give me something to write about later on….
I Suffer from a few health conditions… The main one is called Ehlers Danlos Sydnrome type 3 (eds), it is also refered to as Hypermobility Syndrome (HMS)… I have had this since I was born but i was only diagnosed at 16/17… I also suffer with Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (POTs) since I was little but was only diagnosed at 21
I basically suffer from allot of pain due to unstable joints throughout my body!! I dislocate and sprain my joints nearly everyday… And it also causes a number of other health issues that are not related to my joints but are connected to having this condition!! I know it’s abit confusing lol 😝 here’s a link if you would like to learn more: www.ehlers-danlos.org
Having hypermobile joints mean I’m very flexible and bendy!! For some this has allot of benefits and they can live without any pain and dislocations… But for people with my specific condition it’s a completely different story!!! and the main thing the doctors seem to say is to learn to keep your joints at a ‘Normal Range‘
Iv learnt over the years that the ‘Normal Range‘ is something that you have to work out on your own because every ‘body‘ is different! And you also have to find your ‘Normal Range‘ of your soul/spirit!!! We are not just a body we are people and that means finding what is ‘Normal’ to YOU!
My blog will probably be very random and will be about anything that I feel I want to write about which will include what I go through and how I deal with it!!! IT being health concerns to a lipstick I really like or a random song that pops up in my head 😄
So join me on my journy in
‘Finding My Range’
Peace & Love xxx
