    What a beautiful and touching documentary! Thank you for allowing yourself to be vulnerable in order to share the perspectives of many individuals who have EDS. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job of allowing us to see inside and feel some of what it feels like living with this invisible disease. I am a nurse, and getting to peek inside the emotional journey allows me to be a better nurse. In addition, after a more than 20 year journey my extended family finally has our first Vascular EDS diagnosis. Finally! It’s scary, and it’s a relief! And, I just want you to know your story is helping me as I and my family learn to understand and cope with EDS. Thank you. You should be very proud of this documentary.

      Thank you so much, Rebecca! I know what you mean by “it’s a relief and scary”. I felt the same way when I got my EDS diagnosis. I was so happy that finally, doctors would take me seriously, but at the same time, I was worried how my future would look like. Nurses like you is what we need! Thanks so much for sharing your story with me and for watching my film.
      Best,
      Karina
