Fresh Look and Fresh Outlook with Dr. Brad Tinkle

Hey, everyone, it sure has been a while! I have been so very busy this summer, but am back in action with the blog now, and hopefully will have some good medical news soon, too.

As you can see, I have done a complete revamp of the website, which I hope you find to be user-friendly and full of the information you crave. Please take a peek around and check it out. In addition to being able to subscribe via email to my posts (I just send you an email when I post a new piece), I have joined the modern world and started tweeting. On the right-side of the blog you can click the link and follow my Twitter page.

I have some exciting news to share, which I hope leads to a better treatment plan for me - or at least gives me some new ideas to run with. Ready for it? (I know you are riddled with curiosity and excitement, ha!)

Drumroll, please...

I have moved to Columbus, Ohio (oh, the things we do for love!), and that means I am only a two-and-a-half hour drive away from the renowned geneticist and author Dr. Brad Tinkle! (Ahh!!!) Yes, as you can tell, I am really thrilled about this. Even more exciting, I get to have a consult with him on Friday of this week. I am really nervous about this, as nervous as I get before every major consult, and also feeling a bit overwhelmed since Dr. Brad tends to be known as a rockstar in the EDS world, but hoping that I walk away with some new tools and ideas. It would also be really nice if he could tell me anything, anything at all, about what might be causing the horrific flank pain I have. I will give you all the details as soon as I get back from the appointment - send me some good vibes!

I have so much to tell you all, but not today. I have to get all of my stuff together for the appointment and also have to work on my Thanksgiving Turkey Rescue project. Until next time, I hope you are having an amazing autumn, that your pain is manageable, and that you are filling your lives with love.
