In my poking around I’ve seen at least a few others mention EDS. *waves in zebra*

I suppose it’s not super surprising that permaculture is appealing to others dealing with this. I’m fortunate to have a flexible lifestyle/work and (relatively) limited issues right now, but I know if I had to go back to working a “normal” job like I did throughout my 20s my condition would go downhill fast. We’re still 7ish years away from getting land, so my health goals right now are focused on being able to get there as fit and functional as possible to build for the far-off future. It’s good motivation!

How has your homesteading journey impacted your EDS (and MCAS/POTS if you deal with the triad)? How has your EDS impacted your homesteading journey?

Lessons learned, things you wish you’d done differently?

Cool adaptations or decisions that have made things awesome?
