How do I stop feeling like I’m not disabled enough? Like I have hEDS and a fair amount of its comorbidities, but because I am able to walk (even if not for very long or very well) and all that I don’t feel really disabled. Because my issues are often invisible I feel like I don’t belong like people who have more obvious disabilities. Do you have any advice? Thanks.

Lots of people have disabilities that are less visible or apparent than others. There experience is just as valid as someone with a visible disability.

My advice is that you reach out to folks who share your condition(s) for support. It will definitely help with how you are feeling.
