Emily lives in Maine with her 2 furbabies, her parents and brother, and the family dog. Emily became a part of the DSN team in June of 2016, and though the ride has been short so far, it has been wonderful. She has POTS, EDS, and CRPS/RSD, as well as many other comorbidities starting when she was 15. She has a job doing data entry and reviewing books, which she can do from the comfort of her own home or bed. She enjoys writing, knitting, reading, and getting lost on Netflix. Connecting with this group gave her purpose in her life as well as learning new skills, and refining old ones. Meeting all kinds of wonderful people has been the best part of joining DSN, both as a member and a volunteer.
