Ehlers-Danlos Costa Rica

When I was younger my parents took me to the Cirque du Soleil. I saw acrobats and contortionists there that did incredible things and I thought: one day I will do this too. I can do that. I realized that not everyone was hyper-extensible, bending over backwards at will. It took my husband telling me that people didn’t routinely pop their shoulders back into their sockets in the morning to realize just how much more flexible I was than the average person. I can kick myself in the head. This *does not hurt*, but hypermobility like this causes chronic pain including painful dislocations and sprains.
