Regaining control

This week I had an EDS consult I'd scheduled months ago (before I even had the actual diagnosis, since she books up so far ahead for those appointments) and I think it went pretty well. I liked her, and the whole experience was pretty positive; she also has a family practice out of the office... Continue Reading →



Sorry I've kind of dropped off the face of the blogosphere this past week but the weather has thrown me into hibernation mode, I think. I live in the southeast and we've been in the grip of a brutal cold snap for the past week or so. We aren't used to single digit nights (with... Continue Reading →

Solstice sunset

It has been a hard week. I've been in a web-based training class all week - one that I asked to be allowed to take, so I'm not complaining, but it was still really exhausting.  It was taught 'live' which meant that I had to pay attention to the trainer carefully and there was no...
