Appropriately, Ehlers Danlos syndrome was mentioned on the TV show Bones last night. I watched it online today, out of curiosity. It’s on the Fox website.

Medicine says there is kind of a link between mitral valve prolapse and OCD and anxiety so maybe that is the connective tissue disorder link. Who knows?


I am definitely going to be a research subject at the Vanderbilt Autonomic Dysfunction Clinic — thank you universe. I’m missing a lot of work because of that … whatever it is … & it is bumming me out.


Last physical therapy appointment is tomorrow. Those folks have helped me out a lot & have referred me to someone else in town who does myofascial release. I’m reading Timothy Kelly’s book, Extremities. He’s a poet and physical therapist. Great book. You can read a poem from it at Verse Daily here. You can buy it here, which I suggest you do:
