My Endometriosis?

Hello my Zebras and Spoonies! Thanks for coming and hanging out with me today, I’m glad that you are here. Today I am going to be talking about my experiences with Endometriosis as an installment in the “My Diagnosis” series. It has been a while since I made a post in this series, but there are several more that I plan on writing. Other things have been filling my mind and thus I have been posting about those rather then about my experiences with my various diagnoses.

Trigger Warning: This post is going to be focusing on the menstrual cycle and pelvic pain. I will be going into detail which some will consider to be graphic.

My Gastroparesis

Hello my Zebras and Spoonies! Thanks for coming and hanging out with me today, I’m glad that you are here. Today I am going to me talking about my experiences with Gastroparesis as an installment in the “my diagnosis” series.

Ordinarily, strong muscular contractions propel food through your digestive tract.

My Insomnia

Insomnia is a pretty complex beast that can be caused by so many things. Most of us with chronic illness also struggle with our sleeping. It’s pretty hard to sleep when you are not feeling well. I personally feel that my insomnia is a result of my other illnesses rather then being something unto itself.

Today I’m going to be talking about my experience with Elhers Danlos Syndrome Hypermobile type as part of the “My Diagnosis” series.

It really can be argued that all my other physical problems come back to this one problem.

My Auditory Processing Disorder

Hello my Zebras and Spoonies! Thanks for coming and hanging out with me today. I’m glad that you are here. Today I am going to be talking about my experiences with Auditory Processing Disorder as another installment in the “My Diagnosis” Series.

This disorder is also known as: Central Auditory Processing Disorder and Receptive Language Disorder

To start off, Auditory Processing Disorder is a neurological disorder in which a person has difficulty properly interpreting sounds received by the ears, particularly the phonemes of speech. Auditory Processing Disorder is common in ADHD and ASD. So, it could be caused by either of these conditions, both or neither. No way to tell really.
