She made broken look beautiful and strong look invincible. She walked with the universe on her shoulders and made it look like a pair of wings.

Hi! My name is Georgina E Banks and I’m chronically complicated. I have multiple chronic illnesses, but the main two are Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Functional Neurological Disorder. I don’t expect you to know what they are. After all, that’s what I do – raise awareness!

Don’t criticise what you can’t understand.

I deal with my conditions by laughing at them and being sarcastic. This isn’t the best thing, because it makes it seem like my conditions aren’t that bad – trust me, they are! Check out when I took a selfie with a literal orange for #LetsTalkFND “Something Orange” (yes, I thought it was funny…)

Let’s Stay Connected!
