‘I began purchasing baby formula for myself. ‘How could this have happened?’ I felt my boyfriend distancing himself out of fear.’: Young woman diagnosed with rare Elher’s Danlos Syndrome

“I was literally watching myself decay. I couldn’t stand up to get a glass of water without blacking out. I felt judgement in every public restroom I threw up in. My boyfriend of 3 years, the man I planned to marry, broke up with me. I was ‘too sick.’ It all happened so quickly. I went from helping children get off of feeding tubes, to needing one myself. I spent the majority of my hospital admission sobbing, grieving the life I’d walked away from.”

‘I picked him up from daycare. His little legs had bruises all over them. He was only 4 months old, so he wasn’t crawling yet. There was no obvious explanation.’: Son diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia after mysterious bruising

“My husband inquired about the bruising. He was told that, ‘babies just bruise easily,’ and the bump was just a birthmark. Our minds were filled with fear and uncertainty and our stomachs were in knots. Feelings of anger crept up inside of me.”

‘I was home alone, in a complete panic. So, I flushed. And hoped my toilet wouldn’t clog. I hated myself. I mean, I FLUSHED my baby! And then it happened again.’: Woman goes through multiple miscarriages before having her rainbow babies

“Two days before my boyfriend’s birthday, something told me to check. I had not one single symptom. I got excited! This felt different. I made him sit down and open all of his presents early. He stared at it. Stared at me. And smiled. He was scared, I could see it.”
