About

I’m a woman in her early forties who was beset in October of 2013 with a nerve entrapment due to an abnormal conformation of my shoulder blades.  I have been dealing with chronic pain every day since.  Along the way, I discovered that I have a Level I Autism Spectrum Disorder, colloquially known as Asperger’s.

I have been to countless doctors, and undergone dozens of procedures to mitigate my pain, many of which have been chronicled on this blog.  However, as a strict rule, I do not allow any treatment advice to be posted in the blog itself nor (especially) in the comments section.  Medical assistance can – and should – be found elsewhere, among professionals whose business it is to provide it.

I also see medical professionals to help manage my autism.  But even though it is hidden from most neurotypical people, it strongly informs my life both inside and out.  It, too, is without cure, and any comments that suggest otherwise will also not be permitted.

This blog was created in March of 2014 as a way to try to process what was happening to me. It is my hope that by sharing it with you, we can both gain something, or at least learn something, from my experience.  Please feel free to read, comment, share your experiences, and share these posts with others.
