Hi everyone, I am new here. I have been so overwhelmed with brand new knowledge of HEDS and POTS, and now the Driscoll Theory! This answers so many questions, and puts the seemingly “unrelated” puzzle pieces together for both my daughter and myself. I had a 2 hour consultation with a very compassionate “POTS knowledgable” cardiologist yesterday. He was open to the Driscoll Theory and said he would be willing to try Diamox with me! smile  (I really believe I NEED this.) I had printed the PDF of Driscoll Theory Part 1, and I left it there with him. He opened it and began reading through it immediately. I will see him again on Monday. I have downloaded both parts 1 and 2 from amazon onto my phone and computer, but just can’t figure out how to print part 2 for him. (I printed part 1 from a link on this website to the PDF). Does anyone know if it is possible to print part 2? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I wouldn’t want to send it off to those who haven’t downloaded it. That doesn’t help in supporting her hard work at all.
I just want to be respectful of her endless hours of research.

This is why we need to have a PDF version - it’s almost impossible to print an ebook :(

I did ask on a blog that Dr. Diana responded to saying that the researchers involved don’t want the work to get broken up into pieces, and would prefer that we gift it to our doctors on amazon… I just don’t have doctor yet that I believe will take the time to download it. Turns out my cardiologist doesn’t appear to have even read the part 1 that I left with him. But he is a nice guy and willing to try my suggestions, so I guess I just really need to learn on my own for now anyway.    Thanks Jen

Hello, my friends! The hard copy is almost ready (really, it’s almost ready). Just like any other book you find about medical conditions, that may be the best way to get it to your docs. When you use the “gift” option on Amazon, the book will go directly to the docs. I appreciate the honor of the copyright, everyone. It’s there for many reasons. Thanks for your patience, my friends.

Hi. I understand how a PDF, like Part 1, would be easier, but if you ask any medical authors to provide their books for free, you’d probably get laughter as a response. I think you’ll find the results of the two studies I completed (and self-funded) reason enough to pay something for it (if not, let me know—we’ll talk about a refund, OK?). But it took months to complete, and my kids and I are patients, too, just like you.
The hard copy was harder (great pun) to complete than I had anticipated, so my hubby has been working on it for many hours. It’s ALMOST READY, and it will include a slightly revised Part 1, Part 2, and an eye chapter (and some personal photos) that will make it well worth your while, I think. I’m working now to publish some of it in peer-reviewed journals where it will really carry a lot of weight with the doctors. I’m working for YOU and all sufferers. I appreciate your honor of the copyright. Bringing in some big names in my research also comes at a price—they want and need to stop the hemorrhaging of pieces of the Theory (incomplete and thus inaccurate) from getting spread out to who knows where. That lead to some problems that I’m trying to avoid. Does that make sense? Thank you for your understanding. smileDiana

Yes, indeedy! I should receive the hard copy for a final proof read tomorrow! Yea! It looks SO COOL in color, but we may need to go black and white because of the cost. I thought I could always put the figures and photos in color on the website for free. Cool? smileThanks for asking!
