My life living with Ehlers-Danlos type III. Ehlers-Danlos is a condition that effects the collagen in the body, there are several different types. I have type III, or the hypermobility type. All of my joints are hypermobile, meaning that I am prone to hyper-extension, sub-luxations, and dislocations of my joints. People also have different degrees of hypermobility within this type, I am on the more severe end of the spectrum. Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is widely unknown, and I hope to spread some awareness about this syndrome. Please feel free to ask any questions.
