Hi, so pleased to have found this group. I have lupus, this year alone I've had pneumonia, maningitis, sepsis and other complications from both the disease and the treatment. I have two boys with disabilities. My 18yo has ASD, PDA, erythromelalgia ehlers-danlos and probably POTS. My 13yo has ASD, ADHD, Ehlers and possible bipolar. Sounds a lot,T but they are very  bright academically and run rings around most adults! Also funny, charming and very tall!! I'm after advice on the transition to adult life and can help others especially with advice  accessing social care funding and Pip. Thank you. X

    Hi @EbayLady - Sorry for the rather late response, but noticed both your boys have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, so thought I'd write. Myself, children & 3 grandchildren, all have the hypermobile type of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (hEDS). There seem to be quite a few folk here with it.
    I wish I had some advice to offer, but only know about hEDS & PoTS, which often seem to go hand in hand.
    You've certainly have had just rather too much going on health-wise recently so I hope you're feeling a little better now.
