I've not been diagnosed, but I'm pretty sure I have EDS. Don't feel so bad about your skin. I have horrible horrible stretch marks nearly all over. I look like a monster, and I'm only 21. All of my symptoms have gotten worse over time. You should definitely talk to a doctor about it. Don't worry too much about guys. The right one will love you for who you are inside and not outside. |
: I have had thin skin for as long as I
: can remember. Now it seems that it
: is getting worse. I am only 20! I
: can see veins on my arms, chest,
: legs. I am so sick of this. What's
: more, my family thinks that I am
: crazy and need to see a therapist.
: I have felt trapped for some time
: now. I am scared that I might have
: EDSIV. I don't have the
: characteristic face, and haven't had
: any serious medical conditions.
: Just a broken finger when I was
: younger. I do have the thin skin
: and although I don't bruise
: excessively, I do think that I
: bruise easier than others. I am
: seeing a geneticist in October for a
: skin biopsy. I am adopted so family
: history is of no help here. My mom
: did have two children, so I am
: guessing that if I do have EDS it
: was passed down through my father's
: side. Any help would be greatly
: appreciated. Emotional support
: especially. I feel so trapped in
: this body. I used to love hanging
: out with friends, talking to cute
: guys, you know, normal college
: stuff. Now I feel ugly, and can't
: bring myself to do some of things
: that I used to love doing. I am
: just very badly right now.
: Hopefully my therapist can help.
: Sorry to sound so depressing. I
: just needed a place to vent my
: frustrations. Thanks. I pray for
: all of you to get better.
