EDS Awareness Month Blog Challenge!

Hello my lovely readers and fellow zebras! As most of you know May is EDS Awareness Month. In preparation for tomorrow being the first of May I tried to track down a blog challenge that I could do for this month. I looked all over the internet, including Pinterest but I couldn't find anything, so I have been camped out in front of my computer for almost two hours writing a blog challenge. I'll be participating in my own challenge and I hope others will join me. If you choose to participate, link your blog in the comments so I can read your posts.
