Having Ehlers Danlos Syndrome sometimes feels about the equivalent of being composed of jello and wet spaghetti. Nothing stays where its supposed to. Literally every single cell in the body is floppy, so fingers are definitely an issue for many of us. I can almost guarantee that for the majority of us, writing is not only slow and painful but nearly impossible at times. FIne motor skills? What even are those? An EDSer surely doesn’t have any of those. Even typing which is far easier than writing, is painful and daunting at times. But last year I joined the population of shiny zebras by getting fitted for a set of Silver Rings Splints and they are beyond magical.
For those of you who have not heard of The Silver Ring Splint Company, they are a company that custom makes finger splints that look like elegant pieces of jewelry. Don’t believe me? Well I can’t even tell you how many compliments I’ve received for them. Nobody even suspects that they might possibly be medical. But more importantly, they work amazing! I still have hand pain and finger dislocations when performing fine motor skills and writing is definitely not something I look forward to but I have saved myself thousands of painful dislocations, I can open doors easier, type faster, write longer and hold objects in my hands without looking like an alien from a sic-fi movie. With the rings on my fingers actually look like fingers rather than tentacles!
The company is also family owned and the people are so sweet and helpful!
If you are having trouble with hand pain, clumsiness and dislocations please check out this amazing company!
I’m not sure if I have any followers with EDS, but if so- this looks like a really good resource.
This is so cool…I’m sick of subluxing fingers
OKAY LOOK AT THAT HE GLANCES UP BEFORE GOING TO STOP HIM. HE GLANCES UP AT THE GIANT ICE CHANDELIER THING AND MOVES THE GUYS ARM TOWARD IT ON PURPOSE BECAUSE HE’S HOPING IT WILL FALL ON HER AND HE WILL STILL APPEAR TO BE THE GOOD GUY FOR TRYING TO STOP THE DUDE FROM SHOOTING HER WHEN ALL ALONG HE WAS TRYING TO KILL HER ANYWAYS
This looks like the world’s most entertaining film ever.
