#YouSeeUs was put online in September 2016 by the anonymous Behind-The-Screen-Team and new members join us every week.
We all have
Ehlers-Danlos or Hypermobility Disorders(EDS or HSD) and many other invisible illnesses. With a range of skills, we
create things for the internet and in the real world when meeting with businesses and organisations. We get help from people who don't have any illnesses, or as we call them, The Stripeless.
and Invisible Illnesses are serious subjects but we hope to have a lot of fun with the#ysuTribe
along the way!
We are paying for the project costs. We will not ask for personal financial donations.
Because unacceptable Institutional Abuse, medical
attitudes, mistakes, neglect, ignorance and are ruining andcosting the lives of people withEDS/HSDand other invisible illnesses like
Gastroparesis, Dysautonomia and CCI.
...As the first video we made shows,EDS/HSDis not just being bendy...
Create the #YSU Network. Raise loads of money - we have a seven figure target.
Then invest half in an educational initiative targeting professionals within the health system...
...And give half of it away to Stripey andSpoonieindividuals and small groups who need treatment and support.
We're working towards the money-making part of the project in 2020. We can't tell you what this bit is now, but we're hoping #EDShsd2020 will be a big one!
Until then, we're building our online presence and creating the #YSU Network, to unite and empower people with invisible illnesses.
