Ouch^2

(By the way, this is not the dream post that I tried to start a few days ago. That one is still marinating in my drafts folder.) So after several false starts, spring has finally sprung in my neck of the woods! Everything is growing, blooming, bursting with life (and pollen 😮) and it's so... Continue Reading →

Dormancy

I haven't been around here much the past few months. I haven't really been anywhere else online, either. Work has been... rough... and I don't have much in the way of energy left at the end of each day so I've retreated into myself, mostly. I'm fine, though. Really. I took advantage of the little...

Brain fog for breakfast

Yesterday morning, having woken up with exceptionally bad brain fog, I followed my usual 'autopilot' routine of making coffee and taking my meds, but my autopilot apparently got stuck... Get cups, put baking cocoa and cayenne in my cup, (that's how I like my coffee) pour coffee, get the coconut milk (for me) and soy... Continue Reading →

Some days, I am my own worst enemy

I am so exhausted by the end of a workday that it's all I can do to get through feeding the pets, making (and eating) dinner and then maybe an episode of something on Netflix, so being snuggled down under my weighted blanket with...

It was actually supposed to be two days off, but there was a serious issue I was working on with a software vendor all last week and... Continue Reading →

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 →

The holiday stress ratchets up… 

After the unpleasant mess of the last holiday, I'd hoped this one would be different. Once again, we had both family obligations to juggle, and an invite from a friend to spend Christmas with her family, something we've done for the past several years. The latter is the more appealing option, but the former is... Continue Reading →

Stripes

This is going to be a short one because I've been up since four am and because I've just spent the last 20 minutes cleaning up my end table in the den after I dumped my water bottle of homemade electrolyte solution all over everything. :-/ Today I had my evaluation at the genetics center....
