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. “

It all started as a dream.
And then the dream slowly turned into a ginormous goal.
And then the dream that had become the goal, finally became a reality this week.
I apologize for my post, “I am Trying.” I realize that it was not fair of me to post such a vague entry, knowing full well that so many of my family and friends read. I was so upset the other night, and I was not thinking clearly. I had let my emotional brain overtake my rational brain.
Anyways, here’s the scoop, that sent me into a 2 day frenzy.
(click on the word…)
After seeing Dr. Cantieri, we headed to South Bend.
My next appointment was with Dr. Lavallee, who is a sports medicine doctor, who also specializes in Ehlers Danlos. He actually has Ehlers Danlos; the classical type, meaning it affects his skin and he also has the extreme joint hypermobility. I had no idea what to expect from this appointment, except I was pretty excited to talk to a doctor who actually lives with what I am living with.
