Hello everyone! 
I haven’t updated all semester, so here’s an update on everything going on! 
My health has been really pretty bad recently and I’ve been diagnosed with Craniocervical Instability and have a lot of stuff going on with my C-spine and disks, and a possible Chiari Malformation. I’m still waiting to get in to see Dr. Henderson in Maryland about that and see whether I need fusion surgery and decompression, or just fusion, or whatever else is going on. 
The semester here ends next week, and then I’ll be going home and probably not returning next year since I’ll almost certainly be having surgery in the fall.
So I apologize for being really slow to fill orders and to keep up with everything! I’ve sent out all the last of the orders I had this week, so if you ordered at any time before today and haven’t gotten yours you should be getting it very soon, and if you had an order out you hadn’t received, let me know! 

I’ll also likely have a lot more time to fill orders after next week since I’m not doing much this summer, so I’ll just be home dealing with health stuff and have time to make plenty of bracelets :) 

I haven’t actually donated the next hundred yet, but I’ve reached over $500 total, (first $400 donated $100 each to Fibromyalgia, Dysautonomia, Ehlers-Danlos, and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.) and this next hundred will be to Inflammatory Bowel Disease. 

So there’s my update! Hope everyone has been doing well and i wish you lots of spoons!

Look what came today! Black and white for EDS awareness, and blue for dysautonomia. Showing my spoonie spirit.
This bracelet was made by my new friend and fellow EDS zebra, Jenna, and you can order your own from her here. The proceeds go toward chronic disease research - Jenna has already raised $100 for both fibromyalgia and dysautonomia, every bracelet is a step closer to a cure. You can customize your bracelet with up to eight colors for any cause you want, and you can also get awareness ribbons!
You can find a list of awareness ribbon colors here. Thank you for all your beautiful work (and for just being awesome), Jenna!

So $100 donated to Fibromyalgia research, $100 soon to be donated to Dysautonomia research, what should my next cause be?

I’m thinking Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, or Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome?

Because I know a lot of people are having trouble finding things on paypal, i made a little guide to basic paypal stuff. 
When you click on the link from the side of my tumblr, you’ll get to a page that looks like this.  


The first is to add custom instructions, like color/size/etc, the 2nd is to change the quantity of items in an order, and the third is to calculate shipping.

Soo I’m almost 3/4 of the way towards the $100 for dysautonomia research, that was FAST! 

Thank you everyone, so much!! :)
