Hello! I am so looking forward to sharing my experiences with you all and learning more about yours. This is going to be a great space filled with support and love for all of us.
I’m 21 years old and have just finished up my junior year of college. I am currently attending Fitchburg State University in Fitchburg, Massachusetts with a major in Professional Writing as well as a minor in Psychology. I was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Hypermobility Type when I was 18 years old. I’m a self-proclaimed lover of dogs, music (especially One Direction and Scarlet Fade), and I spend most of my time watching Supernatural and reading anything I can get my hands on. My mom is my best friend and my biggest inspiration in life. She’s my anchor, she’s my biggest supporter, and she’s the calm to my chaos. She’s also a blogger on here as well so look forward to reading her words of wisdom! Come along on this journey with me as we all figure it out together! Find me elsewhere!      Facebook              The Odyssey Online
