ehlers danlos diary 20/8/2015 – costochondritis

I’m not going to write the usual list as the pain in my ribs is outweighing everything else, imagine having ‘the stitch’.. but if that stitch felt more like a heart attack, every time you inhaled too deep/moved half an inch. It’s one of those things all doctors will respond with ‘just rest up’ Its so painful that I almost cried myself to sleep out of exhaustion alone. I hate feeling like this.

The cartilage between my ribs is inflamed and bits of it are breaking away.

But I have my photography work to console me.

Hot tea, the occasional bubble bath, a movie night, its the little things that get you by.
