What I did in 2015: My finest work yet

In case you were wondering what I was doing in 2015, I made this:


Little Israel L. Hausman

Thank you for all your love and support!

Inspired by Alissa, this is for my grandmother who I lost on Saturday, who I didn't even realize I'd lost as I walked...

Disability for Ehlers Danlos Syndrome

I was at the beginning of my teaching career--after multiple career changes due to undiagnosed health reasons--when I had to stop working because of my fibromyalgia which was then diagnosed as Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I then tried to find work that worked around my condition but that proved futile and caused more pain and long-term damage that I could have known.

Every doctor I have asked has said that getting disability for Ehlers Danlos Syndrome is almost impossible. This is true for people I know who are living in poverty, unemployed by their EDS symptoms. I know people who have been denied repeatedly for almost a decade. I have been told to expect more denials than usual---most people get denied at least once.

I can only hope that this petition does those of us who need disability but are living without it some good.

Please, please sign:

add Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and all of its types to be qualified under SSI/SSDI

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is a genetic degenerative joint and connective tissue disorder that debilitates those diagnosed from birth. 

Those with EDS should be qualified under SSI/SSDI because this condition not only makes it difficult to impossible for someone to work, it can also be fatal. 

For further information please go to, it may save a life. 

This will also encourage more doctors to educate themselves as well as possibly increase research on the subject. We desperately need your help!

Learn about EDS.
