Every day, people are displaying courage, strength, determination, and more as they navigate through the ups and downs of living with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), also known as Hypermobility Syndrome (HMS). Our Stories of Strength: Living with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is looking to share good-news stories from people like you who have chosen to change what could be disability into an inspirational example of living life. Our stories are never “complete.” Please do not feel as though you need to be in perfect health to make a difference in the lives of others living with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. We are accepting submissions for our Living with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Anthology volume 2.  The first EDS anthology – Our Stories of Strength – Living with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome was published in May 2015.  Click here to view our Amazon.com listing.

The following questions were posed, leading to the inception of an anthology geared to sharing our stories, as a collective group.

  • If you could reach out and share one moment within your own journey in living with EDS that would inspire someone who was just diagnosed, what would you say?
  • Is there a pivotal moment in which you went from a life defined by EDS to living in harmony?
  • Do you have a story that will inspire others to dig deep within themselves to change their lives and defy what doctors determined as their outcome?

These stories are not autobiographies recounting every aspect of your journey, but about one single event or a couple of closely related events. The premise behind the book is to deliver hope, humor, joy, and a hearty dose of personal success into the readers living with EDS and their loved ones. All submissions should be reflective of this purpose.

Information about what is an Our Stories of Strength Story can be found here. We look forward to bringing your voice and triumphs to others in the EDS Community!

You are welcome to submit your story here.

The first EDS anthology was published in May 2015. We are accepting submissions for Living with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome volume 2 – date TBD. Submitting your story is the first step. Once received, we will send a confirmation of receipt email back. When we are ready to publish, we will contact those whose stories have been accepted for publishing.
