Let’s Get It Started

Posted by Chelsey on November 1, 2007

Welcome to Sense and Disability! This is a blog co-written my myself and my best friend Carly. Aside from being teenagers who love various and sundry things such as Grey’s Anatomy, books, purses and cell phones we both have disabilities.

So this blog is about us, and our adventures! 😀

This blog has been created for multiple reasons. First of all, it’s a place for us to share our experiences, cooky as they may be. Second of all, it’s a place that will be used for details on a project that we’ve been working on, more details later.

But before any of that you should know who we are! I’m Chelsey. I’m eighteen, a sophomore at Oglethorpe University, and I have a disability. It’s called Dermatosparaxis, which is a form of Ehlers-Danlos that causes easy brusing and tearing of the skin. It also causes other lovely side-effects such as short stature, (I’m a whooping 4″6′), low vision, joint infections and other fun things.

I’m also a writer, I speak French, I’m obssessed with London and Shakespeare, I knit (check my knitting blog) And I’m best friends with my co-blogger, the wacky Carly. So, that’s our world. Welcome to it!

    I’m so glad you started this. I have fibromyalgia, one of those invisible diseases, and can really related to others who get put down or have their disability disregarded by the community at large, sometimes even by their own families. I love to knit and do counted cross-stitch, and have just been added to Ravelry, where my name is angelicabeads.

    Thanks for all that you do!


  4. Short/small stature i’m so glad that has replaced other not so popular names. What is it they say, ‘all good things come in small packages’ (old London saying lol)

    Go get em gal.
