Hi! My name is Karen and I am 13. I have RSD, EDS, POTS, and Gastroparesis. I try to be an advocate for everything I have by fundraising and spreading awareness. I am currently trying to write a book on my story. When I was 7, I was running in the hall and I slipped I broke my foot and developed RSD. I did lots of PT and then eventually got better. Then when I was 8 my brother hit me in the shin and I once again developed RSD. It turned into full body RSD and it took a good pain doctor to get me in remission. I have many other illnesses as you read at the top and I have learned to live my life. I want to be a doctor when I grow up and I can’t wait.
I am video blogging all my appointments and am having fun doing it. If you want to learn how, contact me at email@example.com. To see my videos, visit the Karen Richards YouTube Channel by clicking here.
