Hello all.

This has been one heck of a week! May is Ehlers-Danlos Awareness month. You can read more about EDS here. Show your support for the Zebra Community by showing off your stripes! Post your picture on the event page and tag me in it to win an EDS Awareness shirt! The most creative stripes wins!

So an update on me. I am slowly losing my ability to walk. I got a knee brace, but it ended up not helping, so back to the wheelchair. My EDS is progressing faster than expected, which sucks. I started some new medications that I thought were going to help, but so far they are not. I am trying to keep my head up, but its hard to do.

Today marks the one year anniversary of when our lives were changed forever. My dear, sweet Crista Nicole Fultz was cruelly snatched away from us. While the man who took her life will spend the rest of his behind bars, it brings no comfort. It doesn’t bring her back to us. It doesn’t give her children back their mother or her family their beloved sister and daughter.

Crista “did nothing to deserve this,” Hughes said. “She was shot and killed needlessly. Mr. Fensler had a history of domestic-violence offenses and should never have had a firearm.”

Please think before you act. Domestic violence is not a joke or something to be pushed aside or taken lightly. Domestic violence stole Crista’s life. If you, or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, there is a way out. No one deserves to be abused. That’s not love.

Orange was Crista’s favorite color. Show your support by wearing orange for Crista, and purple for domestic violence awareness.

Its been a rough day readers. So please, go hug the one’s you love.

We love and miss you every single day little sis.

Christy
