"Thank you for taking the time and having the mind to put together such a website. I have EDS hyper mobility type, and I have found that there is lots of ignorance out there, among the general population and with doctors, when it comes to this disorder. There needs to be as much information available as possible. Much appreciation for what you're doing."

- Monica Roberts

"I have EDS Type III and 2 of my 3 children have been diagnosed with the 3rd child possibly having a pending diagnosis in the future. Symptoms: I have hyper flexibility, scoliosis, mitral valve prolapse, restless leg syndrome. My oldest has hyper mobility, joint pain and swelling, very stretchy skin, restless leg syndrome, nerve compressions. The second child has hypermobility, frequent dislocations, joint pain and swelling, migraines, scoliosis, IBS, muscle spasms, and TMJ. My youngest child has joint pain, muscular pain, and IBS. All 4 of us have POTS. Thank you for starting his website and your YouTube channel. Awareness and sharing are so important!

"Being a Zebra means something different to each and every single person......One thing that I think that all of us have in common is that we will continue to fight with everything we have no matter what.......we put up and go through so much that we are a special breed of people and we are a group that has a kick ass support system and I think we have to tip our hats off to every social media site out there....it is because of them that so many of us have the support we need from all around the world!"

- Jennifer K.

"Lot of great information in one place. Thanks."

- Brenda Teague

"I found your videos on youtube which led me to here. Great job putting this together! I was finally diagnosed with EDS type 3 in January of 2010 at the age of 40 after seeing an episode of Mystery Diagnosis featuring EDS on TV. 2 out of 3 of my children were diagnosed with EDS type 3 in May of 2010 (my 22 year old daughter and my 14 year old son). I believe my 9 year old daughter has it too but she didn't want to have it so during the appointment she presented it hurt when they would barely bend her fingers and stuff. (Then she comes home and touches her thumb flat against her wrist and her fingers actually bend back further then even mine do…but…what do you do?) I wish you the best! Keep smiling! Some days it's really hard to, I know, but if you keep forcing yourself to smile in spite of it all, it really does help! :-D"

- Brenda Edwards

"I am so glad that I found this site! I am wanting to volunteer and make May something big this year. Been diagnosed with Classical Type EDS for 15 years and never new of EDS Awareness Month until recently.

- Devan Weston

"I support EDSers United!"

- Christine

"Realizing that there is a way to be connected beyond just making sure my bones are all lined up has transformed my every day. The power of the human connection is amazing. I can't get out much, but I can be connected better than before - literally at the speed of light! Yay internet and technology.... but most of all, yay to the human connection which will always find a way. This gives me strength, hope and power. Thank you."

"Hello All :) I'm an EDS mom of 3 kids. Two of my 3 kids have EDS also. My daughters are 18 and 10 years old. Life is not always easy and we all deal with daily pain. I'm very thankful for websites like these. As you all know, it's not easy for others to understand this illness."

- Michelle Flier

"I am so happy to finally have a diagnosis! What a wonderful site as well. Thank you and bless you all"

- Dawn Michel

"I'm from a small island off of the UK called the Isle of Wight. I recently got diagnosed with EDS along with my mum, sister and 8 yr old son, although it is a relief after a whole lifetime of medical issues to put to a name to its. Its very frustrating that there are no EDS consults on the island and no doctor has heard of it! We all have to travel oversea about 3 hours away to the nearest (and only) EDS consultant in England! I'm joining EDS sites now hoping to gain information on how to spread knowledge to this island :-)"

"Dear Nadia, have faith, believe, be strong, and never give up. Love auntie Linda"

"There are so many misunderstandings and outright lack of information about EDS. This really needs to change and I commend all those who spread the word."

- Corrinne Davies

"Nadia, this is your aunt Linda's best friend wishing you a world of love and my prayers are with you through out this journey. We all love you. May God bless."

- Ernestine Howe

"Diagnosed at 33, along with my 3 children, it has been a lifelong struggle to find answers to the myriad of medical problems we've faced. The struggle continues, as 90% of the doctors we've seen have either never heard of EDS, or think all EDSers have the classic "textbook" symptoms. Thank you for helping spread awareness!

- Star Squires

"EDS ruined my life! Well it's not completely ruined, but I'm sure you all know what I mean. I'm looking for any support, advice, and information I can get after being lost in the military medical world for 2 years before being given the boot!"

"Never got diagnosed till about a year ago when I was 13. Now it is hard to be alone and none of my class mates understand, they always say, 'walk it off,' and 'you can't hurt all the time' or 'you're just faking it!' So I have been searching for awareness and support groups. I know it's hard but we will all be alright in the end. I am going into my second surgery trying to fix my knee because I tore my meniscus and all the surgeons are scared to touch me! Finally found one who is hesitant but understand the need for surgery I was walking on a blown knee for over a year and all the doctors would have known if they looked at the MRI, an they told me it was in my head and that I needed to see a psychiatrist. Anyways, nice to see something done for awareness because there are tons of people out there that don't even know what this is. So Thanks edsers.com for spreading the word and for support and understanding."
