Sorry for falling off the side of the planet, turns out it is flat. Seems we live on a discworld, but damn if I can find Nanny Ogg anywhere!
So I guess you can tell by my absence I've been feeling better. It comes from a mix of no longer working, making sure I get to bed & up at the same time every single day & most of all by the fact it's been summer. Summer is the best season for my EDS related pain, usually it sucks for migraines & because I don't cool well. This summer has been mild here so I've been feeling better than I have in 3-4 years. So I took a break from thinking about my disabilities, from talking about how I deal with them & so on.
I also realized that it's not interesting for me to write the same post day after day which boils down it "Ow, I have a hurt." Since I've been diagnosed there isn't much going on with the medical front. They know what's wrong with me & there is no making it go away. I've got orthotics for my shoes (that I don't wear since 1 fits well & the other doesn't), forearm crutches that I can't use much right now due to a crap elbow & a knee brace I don't wear as often as I ought to as I'm very slowly adjusting to the unloader in it.
So on to non-medical stuff. Life is chugging a long as if oft times does. I've gotten much better at my knitting & am enjoying it. I've even started a little knitting group that meets once a month. I started doing yoga at the Y, which I know sounds bad (EDS+Yoga=bad!), but it's power yoga which works to strengthen rather than working flexibility. I've a great instructor who knows I've EDS & I adapt some poses & skip others all together.
I think that's an ok, get off my ass & post kinda post. Perhaps again tomorrow.
