I have been in pain since I was born due to my skin condition, Epidermolysis bullosa. AMA
I was born with a rare skin condition called Epidermolysis bullosa, or EB for short. Its primary effect being the connective tissues between my epidermis and lower tissues is weakened or even non existent in some places. This causes blistering, which leads to permanent scarring over my body, which haven't stopped hurting since being inflicted. It also caused my teeth to lack enamel and my finger and toe nails to fall off over time. There is currently no promising cure, but research is ongoing.
I'm now twenty years old and in my second year of college, please ask me anything.
for more information on EB the wikipedia page is a great start http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epidermolysis_bullosa
and if you want to help research, the DEBRA organization is wonderful, I've worked with them for as long as I can remember. http://www.debra.org/
Also, if you know my name, please don't use it, this is still Reddit.

EDIT 2: Back and answering!
EDIT 3: So many questions! Thank you everyone for the support and positive dialogue. My heart goes out to those suffering with the same and similar conditions. Thank you everyone who was strong enough to share their stories. I need to take a break. I'll be back later tonight and I'll answer as many questions as I can.
