I am not as bendy as some, but they are fun party tricks, but seriously,

DO NOT DO THESE

people with “joint hypermobility syndrome” are subject to many difficulties. For example, their joints may be easily injured, be more prone to complete dislocation due to the weakly stabilized joint and they may develop problems from muscle fatigue (as muscles must work harder to compensate for weakness in the ligaments that support the joints). Hypermobility syndrome can lead to chronic pain or even disability in severe cases. – Source

If you already have EDS, this is no good to be doing to your joints as it promotes dislocations and subluxations. I have had my fair share of stupid injures throughout my life over flexible, messed up joints and bones… and the fact that I did Martial Arts, Cycling and Fitness Instruction before I knew I had EDS and Pots so that added to the injuries too!! :p Anyway, just wanted to share a few silly bendy pictures with you! 🙂

If you have any pictures you would like to send relating to your Dysautonomia and you would like them featured, anonymously or otherwise, please send them onto irishpotsies@gmail.com or share over on the Facebook or Twitter pages. 🙂

Happy EDS Awareness Month!
