Epidermolysis Bullosa

MehaveEBMehaveEB ListenerPosts: 1Member Listener
Hi there, i suffer from Epidermolysis Bullosa, it's a genetic blistering skin disease. I am in the process of claiming PIP and have a Tribunal hearing next month. Worrying myself silly. Never met any other folk with my condition, so if there is anyone here who is a fellow sufferer please say hi. Thanks.

    Hi, I was just wondering if we had met before, as I am aware how rare EB is. I used to help with adapted sports sessions many years ago - big ball football, boccia, and wheelchair basketball, and there was a 6 year old boy with severe EB. I often found myself helping him and his mum and would sit in the bar afterwards talking to them. I was wondering if it might have been you and if so was wondering how you and your mum are?
