Its mid-September and I feel like I missed most of summer. Part of that is the Honey broke and dislocated his wrist playing baseball necessitating 2 surgeries. When he does something he shoots for the best. I'm just glad the best was on call at that hospital that night. Not in the plan.

I feel like I was so busy that I can't remember most of it. This is unsatisfactory.

Started a nutritional shake program today. Hoping that having liquid food will help the rest of my systems to calm down.

My allergy testing was, thus far, not helpful. Blood tests from the allergist has me lower than she wants me to be for Vit D.

Saw a rheumatologist and he was sympathetic, unlike the last one years ago, but mostly didn't have any news that would help me. Blood tests from the Rheum haven't come back yet. Mebbe next week. He agreed that I have some sort of connective tissue thing going on and that I do have some hypermobility but its "not extreme" which pretty much means its not treatable. In the mean time I still can't carry anything without pulling my shoulders and back outta whack and I have no path forward to answers.

I guess I am feeling defeated and that is a really hard place to start winter at. I think I am hoping that the shakes will help underlying things become less problematic.

Shameless begging: In just a few weeks I am turning 40 and here's this thing, I am accepting donations for a new camera. I don't want a bunch of stuffs and I do need a new camera. My current DSLR is almost 10 years old now and it cannot keep up with current technology. Its come to the point that my cell phone takes better photos than it does. I am liking what I am seeing from the the Fujifilm X xeries.

Its a hefty pricetag and I am saving what I can. A lot of people have benefitted from or used my photography in the past. A lot of people have asked how they can help over the years. I'd love a leg up towards this new wonder in my life.

After talking with several people I trust I have decided not to try to use one of the crowd-funding sites. I'll have a jar for cash donations at the dinner. I also have a PayPal account and can accept monies that way by
