    Hi @Karenjames67 - I'm very pleased to be the first to welcome you to this very supportive & friendly community, Karen, as my family is also affected by Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (hEDS) + the neurological complication of Chiari 1 Malformation. :(
    Myself, children, & our eldest daughter's 3 children all have this. You certainly have an awful lot going on with your husband being disabled too, & it is good to have this forum as somewhere to talk. Even with different disorders that others have, I've found that people here really care, & do their best to help each other. So, yes, please do chat here any time, & say if you have any questions too.
