First Post!

I never know what to write when it comes to first starts. I have various journals scattered about my room, all empty because I don't know exactly how to start. But I am determined to make this work!
I'm not sure what I intend for this blog to be. I want to share my experiences with others, because I believe the best way to learn is from each other.
Why is my blog called, "Life as a Zebra?" Because of the following quote:
"When you hear hoof-beats behind you, think horses, not zebras."
 This is a direct analogy of my life! Why?

  1. I am currently on the way to a diagnosis of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (Type III). Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is called a "Medical Zebra" because the syndrome is very uncommon - and just like a zebra, EDS is not something you come across every day! 
  2. Zebras have their own unique patterns - not one is quite the same.  And you will not come across anyone who is quite like me!
