    Story

    I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome which is essentially faulty collagen. I don't have the correct building blocks to ensure my body can function normally. My joints are loose. I injure very easily with recurring tears to my muscles, tendons and ligaments. I suffer with gastric problems, bowel problems, anxiety, depression, anaemia and severe fatigue. Because I don't have the correct building blocks, my body has to work harder to try and keep everything together and in the right place. This is tiring.

      Update from the Page owner

      I don't think I am able to thank you enough. This new chair is unbelievably light, easy to use, and I can get it into and out of the car without causing myself more problems. And it's the perfect shade of purple! I recently lost my job due to various factors but I'm hopeful this new chair will give me a better chance of being able to do another job, without the inevitable fear that wheelchair users can invoke. And that's not always a conscious reaction either. Being different means being treated differently when it shouldn't be that way at all. And right now one of my goals in life is to carry on raising awareness of this condition and how it can affect people, as well as carrying the message that "wheelchair user" doesn't mean "no independence" :)
