This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this!
Regarding your fridge, is it organized or a mess inside? An absolute mess. Ever play Tetris with food?
Do you prefer your food separated or mixed together? I prefer it separated, but I won’t have a meltdown if they mix together.
Do you prefer reading coffee table books (picture), biographies, fiction, non-fiction, educational? I’m sort of a jack of all trades when it comes to reading. Definitely fiction and non-fiction, but I love historical fiction and then reading non-fiction accounts of the actual history encountered in the historical fiction. Hence the reason for this:
Historical fiction account on the left (involving Ravensbruck) and non-fictional 700-page, small font compendium of everything related to Ravensbruck on the right. (I’m especially freaked out because there is a woman on the cover of Ravensbruck that looks exactly like me. The one standing to the immediate left of the post on the left, looking left. It even freaked my husband out. I didn’t even have to tell him which one; he knew instantly.) God rest these women, and bless those who are still alive today. Here’s the full picture:
Close your eyes. Listen to your body. What part of your body is seeking attention? What is it telling you? My pelvis is screaming at me. “Hey, remember me?” Yes, I do, pelvis, you ask me that every day. “Well, just so you don’t forget me, I’m going to ramp up the pain today.” No, pelvis, that’s really not necess-unnnngh. “Don’t you forget me now!” Brat.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I’m grateful that because of advocating for my health, I was able to get some answers from my cardiologist, confirming my POTS diagnosis. I also took matters into my own hands when the geneticist I wanted to see to determine if I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome isn’t taking new patients. I pled my case via email and got a call from the office two days later to make an appointment. Big advocacy week, and I’m proud of myself for not giving up.
As for this week…I don’t know. I’m having a terrible day. I slept for 20 hours and it threw me into a full POTS relapse. It’s going to take some time to get things back under control. So that will probably be my week. How joyous.
