Hello! Today I am a part of the Ehlers-Danlos Awareness YouTube Hop. If you’ve been following me for at least the month of January, you’ll know that I was recently diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. My friend Michele (from Scrap Secrets), who also has EDS thought it would be great to do a YouTube hop to help raise awareness about it and hopefully help someone out there that might not have gotten a diagnosis yet. I’ve got some important links below if you’d like more information, as well as a link to my blog post that is about my journey to getting a diagnosis.

Michele and I will be giving away some goodies as prizes from our stash. You’ll have until the 8th to comment and follow on all of the participating YouTube channels, and we will announce the 2 winners on February 11th. We really wanted this to be more about spreading awareness than prizes, but we did want to thank all of you for watching.
“Medical students have been taught for decades that, “When you hear hoofbeats behind you, don’t expect to see a zebra.” In other words, look for the more common and usual, not the surprising, diagnosis.” –https://www.ehlers-danlos.com/why-the-zebra/
