Started and stopped...

That's how the last few months have been when it comes to writing blog posts. SOOOO much has happened since my last post that it feels overwhelming to edit what is worthwhile posting.

Just to get rolling again, I thought perhaps I could point out the "collection" of blogs I follow (over to the right -->). I intentionally look for blogs related to Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Hypermobility Syndrome. I also like to add other blogs I think people would find interesting or useful. There is no way I can possibly read all the entries people write, though I tried at first when I'd just gotten started, but maybe you'd like to add to your reading list.

When I started blogging, one of the things I found so helpful in other peoples' blogs was the lists of blogs they read. I've met some EDS friends through their blogs; I've heard perspectives on the syndrome that I might not have considered; and I hope that maybe someone can use my list to make their own connections. It seems that there are never too many opportunities to meet others with Ehlers-Danlos, or commiserate with chronic pain sufferers, or learn about techniques to keep your marriage and friendships alive when you feel like crap.

So, I invite you to look around and see who you find, what you learn, and if it makes the time between doses of pain meds go a little faster.

Finally, if you have any blogs you'd like to suggest, drop me a line.


  1. So good to hear from you.
    How are the cats ?
    How are you ?
    I've already found a few blogs to look at from your list. Migraines & Chronic Pain .. those I have.

  2. Hi JC,

    We decided to adopt the two abandoned kitties. The manx, now known as Anhzi, was 'adopted' a couple months ago, but Luna - her bratty sister - was a tough sell for me because she's a bit of a princess. She also went into heat before we could get her spayed. My hubby almost threw her out of the house because cats in heat, as you know, are awful! She was confined to the garage for 2 weeks. Once she was spayed and her hormones calmed down, my hubby fell in love with Luna and couldn't let her go - this was as of last Friday!!!

    So, we are a three-cat household now. Luna is growing on me but I think she'll always be daddy's little girl. Ahnzi (means 'goat' in Arabic) and Aubrie get along well, though Luna likes to cause grief for Aubrie.

    This last week has been tough, physically and emotionally. I'll probably blog about that some other time. Mostly exhaustion, headaches, and irritability.

    How are you doing? I'm glad you found some useful blogs!

    I still wish Seattle had panned out both for the weather (yes I am crazy!) and for friendships. I'm glad we can keep in touch though.
