In this issue: Fatigue from chronic illness can’t be fixed by merely resting or sleeping, and exists on a whole new level. There is an important difference between pain tolerance and pain threshold. Putting medications and herbs aside, even regular foods can be dangerous for someone with Antiphospholipid Syndrome. There’s more to Ehlers Danlos Syndrome than just being super ‘bendy’. What it feels like to be ‘glutened’, and thoughts about how society processes and accepts the concept of pain.

The choice to use Dragon Naturally Speaking even without disability, for better access to ergonomic body postures. How snail mail can be uplifting when you’re bed bound, and some resources for spoonie card swaps! Having the courage to ask for accommodations from work, and the good that came out of it.
