Sara Geurts was just 10 when she was diagnosed with Dermatosparaxis Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (dEDS).
dEDS is a disorder that affects the connective tissues, and is caused by a defect in collagen which results in saggy, wrinkled skin, amongst other symptoms.
For Sara, her younger days consisted of her feeling ashamed of her skin, even taking the effort to hide it.
“I’ll start out by saying I was not always comfortable or accepting of my disorder,” she said in a self-authored post on The Mighty.
