Watch live or afterward to see what all the #IronEdda hype is about!
 
Going to be running a public demo of #IronEdda: War of Metal and Bone here on G+ on Sunday at 8pm EST. As of this posting I've got two slots still open. If you are in for sure, let me know! So far, +Jessica Banks +Aidan Sullivan and +Matt Jackson are playing. We'll be broadcasting live via Hangouts On-Air, so if you can't play, you'll at least be able to watch.

Hangouts stopped allowing me to do this event without scheduling it on-air, which is seriously annoying to me too. Sorry.

I was diagnosed at 23, and I totally agree with how rough it is. You can't control a lot of those external factors, but one thing you can do for sure is insist on self-care. Make sure your GMs know that you may have to take a break to walk or stretch or take meds, so your character should be easily "put in the backpack" for a few scenes. Let other folks help you with things that can't be avoided, like getting food, and insist on disability services for the stuff that can--you DO deserve to walk up to the "VIP" window and ask for a registration process that doesn't wreck you physically.

I've been working on this for 16 years now, so if I can give you support or any other insights for work-arounds, just let me know. And keep doing what you love--it makes the pain worth it, sometimes.
A little background: I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia when I was 12. It was a lousy diagnosis to get at such a young age, but the symptoms were pretty clear and they’ve only gotten worse since then. If you want to know more about fibromyalgia, a quick internet search should answer any questions you have. I started tabletop gaming around age ...

Thanks Jessica! It has been a tough road, but I'm learning. I have trouble getting over the embarrassment that can come with asking for help or breaks, and feel guilt over using the VIP lines because I'm not disabled "enough." 

Any suggestions you have are always welcome! You can find me on G+ as +Brianna Sheldon and twitter @briecs.
