Hey there! I’m Ehlerdanlosaurus, but please call me Dan. I live with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I wish everything could be zebra 🦓 striped like me. Rocky (Chronic Kidney Stone monster), Snore (Fatigue monster) and Missy (Misdiagnosis monster) are my three best friends. I wear braces on my legs because my joints dislocate easily as a result of my EDS.
There are 13 types of Ehlers Danslos Syndrome and each type is a distinct condition caused by a different gene mutation. The hypermobility type is the most common, it’s the one that I have.
Even though my joints dislocate so easily, I love to dance.🕺 It gives me a sense of freedom and makes me happy. 😊
In short this is what describes me:
Name: Ehlersdanlosaurus
Nickname: Dan
Represents: Ehlers Danlos Syndrome
Favorite Colors: Black and White
Superpower: Can dislocate and relocate his joints by himself
Prone to: Loose skin, hypermobility, flexibility
