I’m Mya, I’m 18 and from the Gold Coast, Australia.

I’m living with Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and rely fully on the use of a wheelchair. I’ve been struggling with my Ehlers-Danlos for my whole life but was only diagnosed in 2014 after several years of misdiagnoses. I am TPN & Gastric Jejunum fed due to multiple different conditions, with the root cause being my EDS. I had to leave school due to my health, so I’m currently studying Community Services online and hope to one day become a psychologist.

I’m an avid Harry Potter fan, with J.K Rowlings being my queen! I look forward to sharing my thoughts and views on being a teenager living with this crazy roller-coaster of an illness!
