Take a break from the trauma drama. Hope this leaves you, too, in stitches.

ESL Starts

My family's been going through some tough stuff. I'm doing okay. Coping. Wish I were an able-bodied person.

This week I'm excited to begin a new adventure into the world of ESL (English as a Second Language). Twice a week I'll be observing an ESL class, just for fun, to learn how people learn. Education and inter-cultural communication are big interests of mine, and I expect the community will be an encouraging place for me.

Info on POTS Doc

Hello POTSy friends. Just got an email from a happy patient. I haven't heard of or seen this doctor myself but wanted to share her good news. Here are highlights from the email... hope it helps!

"Luckily, I pushed on and saw this new guy. He is interested in POTS, and very well read in everything POTS- the meds, the side effects, the testing, the new medicine that Cleveland clinic is using, POTS during pregnancy, POTS syncope, literally, the guy educated himself in EVERYTHING when it came to POTS.

"Seriously, this guy might be the best doctor I have ever seen, POTS or any other kind.
"That all probably sounds like a sales pitch! I swear, I don't work for the Anyway. His name is Barry Laskoe, he is an EP, a DO, and he is out of Advocate Lutheran. I see him in Park Ridge or Glenview and he is in Buffalo Grove, too."

Kennel 84

I haven't had reliable internet access lately, hence the late update. I'm doing ok. Lots of family craziness. I love my little cousin Rhiannon! My kinda in-and-out, mushy, numb. Sometimes I'm doing great, and sometimes I get tired and my eyes are sensitive to light. Like right now, I need to get off the computer. Later!
