I just got home from our first night of parent-teacher conferences. I am pretty fried but here I go truckin’ along with National Health Blog Post Month. Please don’t expect anything profound…I’m in brain fog-land.
If you have been following, you know I had my chance to cross off one of my goals for the year last week, which was to work out with the incredible Dr. Lavallee. Back in January I had asked him at my yearly EDS check-up if he would ever be willing to work out with me. He laughed a little, I think taken by surprise, and said, “But I don’t think you need to learn many of the exercises I do…I think you are doing well managing your EDS so far on your own. “
Two Thursdays ago, Brad and I headed to South Bend to see Dr. Lavallee. It had been a whole year since my last visit with him. I was not only ready to discuss a bunch of EDS things, but I was really looking forward to spending some time with Dr. Lavallee, himself.
I wish they had bumper stickers that said this. Because it’s true. Very, very true.
This is something I never thought I would say. But that’s life. It can change on you in an instant.
I needed Kleenex for both of these.
Both of them had an impact on me this Christmas Eve morning.
