I see 2007 and think “oh 3 years ago” and then it hits me that it was 7 fucking years ago
Having Ehlers Danlos Syndrome sometimes feels about the equivalent of being composed of jello and wet spaghetti. Nothing stays where its supposed to. Literally every single cell in the body is floppy, so fingers are definitely an issue for many of us. I can almost guarantee that for the majority of us, writing is not only slow and painful but nearly impossible at times. FIne motor skills? What even are those? An EDSer surely doesn’t have any of those. Even typing which is far easier than writing, is painful and daunting at times. But last year I joined the population of shiny zebras by getting fitted for a set of Silver Rings Splints and they are beyond magical.
For those of you who have not heard of The Silver Ring Splint Company, they are a company that custom makes finger splints that look like elegant pieces of jewelry. Don’t believe me? Well I can’t even tell you how many compliments I’ve received for them. Nobody even suspects that they might possibly be medical. But more importantly, they work amazing! I still have hand pain and finger dislocations when performing fine motor skills and writing is definitely not something I look forward to but I have saved myself thousands of painful dislocations, I can open doors easier, type faster, write longer and hold objects in my hands without looking like an alien from a sic-fi movie. With the rings on my fingers actually look like fingers rather than tentacles!
The company is also family owned and the people are so sweet and helpful!
If you are having trouble with hand pain, clumsiness and dislocations please check out this amazing company!
This is important because reasons.

He always said he was going to see my name in then end credits some day. Which happened, he just never got the chance to see them. I would have loved to hear his opinions of me working on a movie about a lesbian housewife or a tv show about real cops, both would have been interesting, funny conversations.
OH GOD WHY. WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS MY EYES ARE LEAKING.
This is the saddest gold.
TOO SOON! TOO SOON YOU SONS OF BITCHES!

I get why a lot of people hate the whole princess culture aimed at little girls. There’s a hell of a lot of toxic bullshit in there.
But when I was a tiny princess, my dad used to be my royal advisor. He would come to me, and over tea we would discuss the problems of…
my sisters and I played a game called Princess Fairy Land which was a post apocalyptic water world um
It involved a lot of running around with sticks, shouting.
