Well, hello everyone! It is good to be 'back'! This is just a quick update to let you know that I am alive and well (as well as we EDSers can be!). I appreciate all of the caring and sweet emails I have received from everyone over the last few months. Life brought me a lot of changes in late 2009/early 2010. Along with the usual pain and drama of life with a chronic illness, I went through a break-up, a cross-country move, a battle to get on disability and then a waiting period before I received a dime, moving back in with parents at 28, and a brother joining the Army. Needless to say, I was a bit preoccupied and had little time and motivation to keep writing. I will be responding to everyone's emails soon, and I will be posting regularly again. I have a lot to update you all on - including the good, the bad, and the ugly with regard to the natural approach to treating EDS/POTS. I look forward to your comments on all the new posts and also to sharing more so that we are able to learn and grow from each other. I hope you all are doing well and I hope your 2010 is off to a wonderful start! May this be a low-pain and beautiful year for all of us!
