Hi, my name is Lisapb!

Lisapb Member Posts: 1 Listener
Hi my name is Lisa, I am married and have 3 children. My Husband is wonderfully understanding and helps a lot.

My health issues started when I was pregnant with my last child. I used to be very active with looking after a large garden, swimming, riding, skiing and teaching skiing and climbing. Having a disability has been a shock and probably still not come to accept it totally and all the baggage (electric wheelchair and other aids) that comes with it.

 I have hEDS, Fibromyalgia, anxiety issues. Two of my 3 children have also got hEDS and my oldest has scoliosis too. We live about 50 mins from Oswestry hospital which we visit a lot. We live in beautiful Shropshire.
