Today in dysautonomia: had to abort my shower because I couldn't stand up long enough
I tweet things like this because the ways in which I'm disabled are all pretty much invisible, and I think it's important to know that healthy-looking people live with these sorts of problems.
I usually include a medical name for the condition I think is most relevant because otherwise "I couldn't stand up long enough" might be interpreted as "I had a big sesh last night" or something else that I could mitigate.
But it's tricky, because I've been diagnosed with like a dozen things that overlap with each other in many ways, and nobody seems to understand what they really are, or what causes them.
So today is it dysautonomia, or dyspraxia, or Ehlers-Danlos?
I'm fairly sure it wasn't colourblindness, at least!
I don't really like having this long list of really rare things - it looks implausible. But they all overlap, so P(dysautonomia | dyspraxia) is pretty big, I think
Update: I mowed the lawn. My autonomic system is a land of contrasts 🤷
