Who is someone that inspires you and why?

There are many inspirational writers that inspire me, but my friend, Renate, has been my rock for many years. I look up to her and she is a very kind, giving, and faithful woman.

Renate was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. (Ehlers-Danlos syndrome affects connective tissue, primarily the skin, joints and blood vessel walls. Symptoms include overly flexible joints that can dislocate, and skin that’s translucent, elastic and bruises easily. In some cases, there may be dilation and even rupture of major blood vessels. Treatment helps manage symptoms and monitor for complications. Options include drugs, physiotherapy and sometimes surgery.)

She struggled with this since I knew her in high school but never knew what it was. Despite the chronic pain she was in, she always smiled and tried to help others.

When she got diagnosed a few years later, she had to leave the job she loved. She did not let it get her down, and if it did she never showed it. She is always ready to listen, and try to lift your spirits when you are down.

A few years back she started knitting Premature baby clothes, baby blankets, scarfs, hats, and mittens for the less fortunate. She donates it and ask nothing in return. Even with the EDS she still keeps knitting through the pain because someone needs it.

I love my friend to bits and I can’t wait for Covid to be something of the past so that we can visit again. She has a very high risk of being infected and that is why she rather isolate herself. I miss our visits a lot, but at least we have WhatsApp to keep in touch.

Thank you with all my heart for stopping by and having a look at my post.
