Time is flying by at the moment. Thank you to everyone who expressed concern for me, I am ok, back to my usual cheerful self, just busy and lacking time to blog!
Life is back on it's usual rollercoaster of good, bad and ugly. One of the most daunting things about moving is packing everything up, especially so when you are very limited physically in what you can do. When it comes to actually moving I have plenty of lovely friends who've already volunteered themselves for the removal task force, but of course I still have to get everything packed up for that to happen. I'm trying to do small amounts every day, and I'm selling what I can on ebay. It's all going well, but means I just haven't had the energy to blog.
It was my birthday last week. The day itself passed in a blur. Initially I thought I had picked up some sort of bug but I soon realised all the symptoms I was experiencing could be put down to several days of increased instability in my spine and pelvis. Ehlers Danlos Syndrome tends to be thought of as something that 'just' affects the joints although anyone with the condition could come up with multiple reasons that isn't the case. Something I understand more now I understand the condition more is just how many other symptoms dislocating major joints can cause, especially relating to pelvic or spinal instability. I tend to find that if I've had multiple spinal dislocations or subluxes then problems with bladder and bowels go hand in hand.
Although my actual birthday was a write off for those reasons, I went out for dinner with Roland, Red, Ben, and a couple of other friends at the weekend which was a lovely night and more than made up for a few dislocating joints!
