(photo)Hey guys, I thought I'd open up the floor to answer some questions. I get a lot of emails asking me all sorts of things from, how did I get diagnosed to my favourite salty snack, or how to talk to doctors, or even how to start a health blog. I reply to as many of these as I can (sadly not all thanks to sheer numbers and the ever present fatigue and poor health we are all dealing with), but that's a one-on-one basis. Often, after the fact I think the question, and answer, are one many could benefit from and I should do a blog post. Of course, seven seconds later I've forgotten that great post idea (thanks bright shiny objects) and the post is never written. So I thought it was about time I rectified things with a little Q&A session.
So, what questions do you have and what do you most want to know about? Me? The blog? Dysautonomia? Doctors? Lemurs? Quantum physics? Whether I'm a Sam or a Dean girl? What I'd name my direwolf? The political situation in Nicaragua? Whatever. I can't promise I'll have an answer. I can't promise the answer will be coherent, or even on topic. It'll probable feature the number 42 frequently. But there'll be an answer.
What do you most want to know?
Just write your questions in the comments section below.
NB: I'm not a doctor and any medical questions/decisions need to be discussed with your treating physician. I can only share my personal experiences. As we all know Dysautonomia often has a very individualised presentation and often what may work for one of us, may not work for everyone.
When your song choice has to be related to questions, you can't go past The Clash, Should I stay or should I go? (1981). Which I may or may not have belted out at the top of my voice at more than one bar over the years. Along with The Angels, Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again?, and pretty much anything by the Violent Femmes.
