Heather Sell started this petition to American Medical Association and

We want to raise awareness about the struggles of all those living with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome or any other medically complex invisible illness. We want to show you that our struggle is real. Our doctors often tell us, "When you hear hoof beats, think horses, not zebras." But what these doctors fail to realize, is that zebras do exist.

We, the patients, especially women and transgender or non-binary/gender-neutral individuals, are often not believed, or taken seriously.

Our stripes are real, and we need people to acknowledge this, even though they aren't visible on the outside.

Please sign this petition if you have experienced being disbelieved, dismissed, or felt emotionally abused because you weren't taken seriously by your doctor. If your doctors have dismissed your pain by saying it is due to mental illness, then please also sign this petition.
