Five For Friday 12/18/10
Forgive me, I’m a day late. Had a yuck day yesterday-all hurricanes going at once; POTS, neck, Migraine, GI…Was on the massage pillow and heating pad most of the day and in bed at 8:30…Hopefully today will be a better day.
1. Larry had me meet with a doctor from Minnesota who was in town for the weekend teaching at the MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine, Principles of Manual Medicine Course. He spent an hour Sunday and an hour Monday doing visceral manipulations on me. AND, his wife and daughter both have EDS! Visceral Manipulation is a type of gentle manipulation that helps relieve imbalances and restrictions in the interconnections between the motions of all the organs and structures of the body. (I took that from http://www.jeffreyburch.com/home/jb1/visceral_main.html).
2. Theresa and I made Buckeyes! I have always wanted to learn, but now I am not so sure I wanted to know exactly how much sugar, butter, and peanut butter goes into making them. Nevertheless, they are still
one of my faves, and I can still justify eating them since they are a good source of protein, right 🙂
I just realized that was a lot of medical stuff, but that pretty much sums up my week!
