Whatever: Life In The Land of Square Buttons, Independence In The Face of Illness This piece is about my struggle as a young person, with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and other illnesses, to become independent in the face of many who said I could not live on my own. To those who said I could not, and to those who stood in my way, I said, “Whatever!” and pressed on. The woman who handed me the keys to my first apartment wore a shirt with square buttons.
