TBI and everything after - a conversation with Cheryl Green

What I would like to see is, at the same time that you’re going through rehab, that you’re getting constant reinforcement that it is OK to be a person with a disability or with an impairment. It is not embarrassing to ask for help. You are not a burden if you need something, ever. And what disabled people need is not special. You don’t have special needs, you’re not a ‘special person’ - you are a person who has a specific need around your disability

How to Keep It Together when it's all falling apart

In this episode, we are going to be talking about keeping it together; keeping up with all the little changes that happen when a new chronic illness diagnosis or disability happens. You start with problem X, but that leads to new symptoms that could be problem Y. You go to a new specialist who sends you for new tests, or gives you a new meds to try. And then, the medication might have a side effect that you need to control, so that’s more doctors and maybe additional treatments — where does it end?

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome - quick tips with Eir and Laura

In this episode, we are going to be talking about Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, or EDS. There are many types of EDS, but they all stem from the same cause: improperly made collagen in the body.

We'll talk about some of the most common symptoms and our top tips and tricks on coping with them.
