How businesses can support people with #EhlersDanlosSyndrome to be well at work

Published in Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) Awareness Month

A question I am asked regularly by visitors to my blog is how I am able to be well while I am working full time, often long hours, and mostly at a computer screen throughout the day.  

Living and working with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome can seem like an uphill struggle at times, but there are some simple ways in which I think employers can support staff with EDS to be well at work.  I'll explore a few of my thoughts on this in this article.


I can offer only the highest recommendation for Ruth.
She is a kind and compassionate person who at work shows commitment and perseverance.


I have known Ruth for many years, as a peer, a collaborator and an expert advisor.

Technically Ruth is excellent and has a thorough knowledge of website construction, conversion rate optimisation and helping her client's understand the ongoing value of digital marketing and content to aid SEO.


I ran a mile every day for 40 days .. and so can you! #rwrunstreak

I remember quite clearly, that moment when I saw a post on Facebook about the Runner's World Run Streak while I was contemplating the icy cold morning I was about to launch myself into in order to get to the gym for my 6am personal training session. 'That looks interesting', I thought, as I yanked on my leggings, mumbled something about early morning training sessions, and joined the Facebook group thinking I'd check it out later that day.

Little did I know, that decision I made on an icy cold morning in November 2017 was about to challenge me in more ways than I was ever expecting in the coming 40 days!
