sitting outside the post office........

was in the next town to us, whilst mum went into the post office to mail a parcel for me, rosy and i waiting outside.

a lady passed me on a scooter, stopped reversed, she smiled and we began talking. she asked what put me in the wheelchair, my usual sentence came out, a genetic disease. ah what one do you mind me asking, nope. ehlers danlos and pots. she smiled, youve seen prof g then, yep. i have it too. so does my six children.

whats the chances of that. my first encounter with a real life ed-ers!!! we swapped stories, laughed, then she dug into her bag got a piece of paper, wrote her address and telephone number down and told me to contact her. couldnt stop smiling. she also said her youngest has just applied to medical school and got in. so a future dr with eds. another bonus.

The probability of that happening ummm...... absolutely no idea but how amazing nevertheless.

Bizarrely it happened to my daughter and a now friend the other day whilst out and about!

A.W.E.S.O.M.E.

Knowing other EDSers is priceless,but meeting another someone like that is pretty bad-ass!

I'm so happy for you :)

This is what I really want to say,

That must have come as a surprise!

Maybe she will be someone you can chat with.

That's a great story! I love it when chance encounters become meaningful and allow you to connect deeply with others.
