The Project

The Dystonia Girl project came about as a result of DG being diagnosed with … Dystonia. This rare neurological movement disorder works to make life difficult for the sufferer in innumerable ways. Pain and uncontrolled muscle activity are just a few of it’s manifestations. Sufferers may also develop depression.

There is no cure.

Symptoms can sometimes be brought under control by quarterly Botox injections. These injection programmes can take a long time to yield results.

The Dystonia Girl project was conceived as therapeutic programme, to stimulate thought, to encourage and support others with the condition, to write about horsey stuff and engage with the many talented and interesting individuals who call the internet, home.

Oh, and to have some fun!

So far it’s worked wonders. DG writes most days and the Dystonia Girl blog receives a steady stream of visitors. Some even come back.

DG Eye is an extension of this project, with the addition of a picture blog.

Thanks for Reading. And looking.

Keep Well.
