going to the PT this afternoon to get fitted for braces for my knuckles to keep them from bending to far while doing stuff with them. i'm still kinda worried the dr will laugh at me and not believe me. but i have a prescription from 'lady doc' for it, so that should hold some weight right?

my mum wants me to get a orthopaedics fitting for insoles for my shoes and what not, since that should help keep my pelvis and ankles and other joints in place, and hopefully ease my lower body pain.

since i've been taking the progesterone at night, i've been able to sleep pretty good, i sleep deep enough not to be woken up by things, or even taylor still awake on the laptop next to me. which is quite a miracle, if i do say so myself. so thats good. i get checked out again, in two months to see how everything is doing. the nurse practioner did a test on me, to see the energy i'm emitting from a celular level, and everthing is not so great (my cells are leaking) except my metabolic rate. since i'm taking the greens and stuff, that seems to be keeping my metabolism good. but everything else needs to heal itself, which should happen with all the different things i'm taking.

sooooooo yeah!
i guess thats everything, brain is all over the place today.
i've gotta pick up the rest of my progesterone prescription, go to the chiropractors and then the physio therapist. busy day.

The physio shouldn't laugh at you, it would be unprofessional.

I know how you feel about it though, even though there is something wrong and you need the braces, you've been told you were 'faking it for attention' for so long that it starts to feel like it IS a fake illness.

Cos that's how I feel.

exactly! and i'm sorry, it sucks balls :(
Today went really well actually, the PT was really super nice, i think she found it kinda fascinating how much my fingers and wrists bend, she was concerned about dislocations and was really glad i hadn't had any, she worked with me for an hour testing all my fingers and both wrists to see how much they bent, how much strength i had and so on. she officially said that i definitely have hyper mobility, and was taking it seriously enough to refer me to an OT that works in the clinic that specializes in hands to get checked out with all her gadgets and to have the OT size me for the splints.
so yes, it was very good and i'm very blessed. i was really worried it would go completely the other way, because a lot of the time, that is what happens.
