Wow what a week! I am sorry you went through all that, but I am glad you went and were there for your husband and both his parents. It had to be a great comfort to them. Now I am really suspicious that you husband and MIL have EDS too. What does your husband think? I hope your MIL is still doing better and better. How did you do during the flight? Do you have trouble with pressure changes? I know this is pathetic, but I have not been on an airplane since I was 17 years old so I don’t even know how my body would respond to the pressure changes. Sorry you have so many anxiety issues it’s so common among EDSers. I notice my anxiety has gradually gotten worse over the years. I feel like asking my Psychiatrist for something to help with it. Dr. Diana had a hypothesis to why we have so much depression and anxiety in EDSers, but I can’t remember what it is right now. I can’t even remember where I read it.
I am so glad your cats are fine. I got my first cat five years ago and she is such a comfort to me. She knows when I don’t feel well and she will watch over me. She is siting here right now. We left her alone one night and when we returned she was ticked off at us. We were gone less than 24 hours, she had plenty of food,water, etc.. BUT she did not care. We left her alone and it was pay back time. We have a dog too. He is loyal, protective, loving, but not very smart, and he can not see well. I love him too, but my cat is more snuggly and she is loyal to me. Most of the time. 😉
How did your Monday appointment go? How are you feeling now? One appointment can wipe a person out for two days.
I have the feeling you have hydrocephalous and maybe if you can get that diagnosed you can start on Diamox a get relief from the headaches.
I feel bad if I overload on sugar and the salt will sometimes make my headaches worst. It is a hard balance. I am not even sure it works. It just more fun to give into cravings. I hope you are doing well.
