Chocolate Morning Glories and Raynaud's Syndrome

"Chocolate morning glories, chocolate morning glories". That's the phrase that kept running around in my head this morning; woke me up at 4:00 a.m. Why? I don't know. Yesterday, it was a name, "Mobely". I don't know anyone named "Mobely". Ever had a phrase from a song or an advertising jingle running through your head? Same thing, without music. I'm really having a hard time sleeping these days. I figured that if I got up and drew a picture of what I think chocolate morning glories might look like, it would stop ricocheting off the inside of my head. It worked; I'm cured!

Yesterday, I was diagnosed with yet another rare, incurable condition that nobody knows the cause of; Raynaud's Syndrome. It started suddenly this weekend; one finger that goes numb and cold, turns ghostly white, then blue, then red, then back to normal. The doctor says it's no big deal, just keep your hands warm. Oh, I also have carpal tunnel syndrome. The doctor's suggestion for that? Learn to crochet with your feet.

I'm working on it...

Raynaud's is a pain in the butt, but it's not too bad. I've had it for a few years now (was diagnosed at 14 with no other related disorders), so I've had some experiences managing it. In my experience, it's best if you wear gloves whenever it's below 65 degrees, and wear lots of sweaters/ long sleeves.

I'm a lucky lady. I have a wonderful husband of 27 years, a fantastic 25 year old son (I'm so proud of him!) a loving and supportive family, the best friends in the world, a job that I love, and... Parkinson's Disease. I was diagnosed in September 2006. That was a jolt, but I'm learning to deal with it.
