Not That I'm Bragging Or Anything.

So I was just on the phone to It'sComplicatedBoi!, who I'm now going to refer to as MyGC (My Gentleman Caller) for reasons that are self-explanatory. (And it's a hoot. I'm loving the arrangement we have now. It seems I just needed to give myself a bit of a shake and have a rethink.)

I was filling him in on yesterday's appointment and explaining the hypermobility thing, and how weird that was since I'd always associated hypermobility with people who have bendiness of the "party tricks" variety, and alas, I have no such party tricks.

And he begged to differ. He said he has noticed unusual bendiness in me. On further questioning, it seems that I'm bendy in a few places that other women aren't.


I had no idea! Maybe I do have party tricks after all, it's just that I've been going to the wrong sort of parties.


*hysterical laughter*

Because I'm catching up.....I wonder if you have EDS? Professor Callahan at the Alfred is the one to see. Apparently a fair number of ME/CFS people have EDS.

It's so funny when people are catching up and the comments come in backwards.

You don't mean Dr. O'Callaghan of the Austin by any chance?

This guy (who is, in fact, Dr. O'C of the Austin which is why I wondered) says not necessarily. He thinks EDS is probably overdiagnosed. Apparently you can be hypermobile without having EDS.

But then I thought it was a stretch to call me hypermobile and he reckons I am.

Of COURSE that's who I meant.

Interesting that he says EDS is overdianosed because he seems to be the one diagnosing all the people in the group.
Kris Courtney has been trying to get me to see him for yonks.

That's a good point. And possibly one of those attitudes to EDS that might be overturned as more people come out of the woodwork.

After all, while I can see, in retrospect, many little indicators of what was to come, there is a definite before-and-after experience as well.

Party tricks done between two people can be endlessly amusing. That's all I have to say about that. So....Newboi! became Exboi! who has become It'sComplicatedBoi! and is now your Gentleman Caller? That's some pretty fancy morphing...good stuff!

Yeah sorry, it was a bit TMI.

Um, things morphed. I've not talked about it because it was a quiet thing for a while, and because I figured that I really can't keep blathering about him all the time. I figure that sooner or later one has to either be able to manage it without excessive blathering or bail out completely - I took the former option. :)

No sorrys necessary! I was amused!

Maybe you could turn this party trick into a Fringe Festival act. Make some money.
