My Joints Dislocate 60 Times A Day | BORN DIFFERENT

Truly

DANIELLE Shield, 27, suffers from a condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), which affects her connective tissues, causing her joints to dislocate, sometimes up to 60 times a day. Trivial things such as brushing her teeth, washing her hair or carrying her two children can result in her having to click her joints back into place. EDS has also severely affected her heart, bladder and stomach resulting in her living most of her life in hospital and eating child-sized portions of food daily. With her partner Chris and father Kevin by her side, Danielle has been able to overcome the discomfort that comes with her condition. Despite the barriers, her tenacity and positive attitude has inspired the people around her, as she “never gives up” and states that “with the right support”, she can do whatever she puts her mind to.
