Reese's Puffs

Today's cereal in honor of Snowball--lol. I'm so happy my sister had such a great time and seemed to learn a lot. She spoke so highly of everyone...thanks for giving her a weekend to remember!

Just fighting the frustration of it all. Sometimes I feel like I'm stuck in "Groundhog Day."

Bad bloody nose last night. Today, just more of the same from the last two days. The twitching seems to have become more frequent...about 1-2x a minute, usually in my legs and feet. Also my trembling has returned full-force. Jaw and knees shaking a lot which results in A) locking my jaw, which I'm sure doesn't help my headaches and B) depending on the railing when I walk down stairs. Very sleepy, achy, and having more vertigo lately.

Just four days until Dr. Cooley -- the POTS cardiologist in Milwaukee. Some answers, please! If he isn't able to help me, we're considering Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. Ack.

In the meantime, we got the kit to test for Leaky Gut Syndrome. It's a terribly blunt name, suggesting bodily fluids just seeping out of a belly-button or something. Whatever happened to the euphemism. Tsk. My, how times have changed. Haha. It's also known as "Intestinal Permeability:" essentially, if you've somehow lost the ability to absorb vital nutrients, it will make you sick. And if your body is instead sending toxins to different cells and systems of the body, then it can make you very sick.

Time for some more rest. I really want this to be over soon.

"All my life, I had a lump at the back of my neck, right here. Always, a lump. Then I started menopause and the lump got bigger from the "hormonees." It started to grow. So I go to the doctor, and he did the bio... the b... the... the bios... the... b... the "bobopsy." Inside the lump he found teeth and a spinal cord. Yes. Inside the lump was my twin."

oh, aunt voula,
