I’d like to tell you that the title for this post is some deep metaphor for the wisdom I’m about to bestow, but it’s actually very literal. I made some updates to this blog, and they were administrative in nature. How boooooooring.
Formerly, my blog was hosted by WordPress.com, which allows only minor changes. So, I decided to upgrade and self-host a WordPress.org blog. If you read this through an email, please navigate on over to www.dysautonomiac.com and let me know what you think of the design. I’m not sure if I will keep the snail image yet. I took that photo last year in my backyard, and I like the symbolism (I move slowly and often feel like I carry a huge weight on my back), but it seems rather bleak.
The wide margins annoy the crap out of me, so I’m working on fixing that.
One thing I do want to point out is the Antidote search portal on the left sidebar that says: “Let’s find cures together.” If you type in your illness and your location, you can search for clinical studies seeking participants for your illness. In the interest of full disclosure, I did receive an Amazon gift card for adding that search portal, but I have also already used it to search for studies for my and my mother’s illnesses. I am not able to see what information you enter, so don’t worry about that.
