Matthew was diagnosed with Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (VEDS) in 2020, when after years of struggling to get answers, he came across characteristics of VEDS, including sleeping with his eyes open, on The VEDS Movement website in early 2020. Knowing he had so many of the characteristics, and previously had been dismissed by a geneticist, he sought after answers again with a second geneticist. His genetic test came back positive for VEDS in the summer of 2020.
Matthew shares his story, and how he processed the information of his and his mom’s diagnoses while also living through the pandemic.
