Composer (and medical device inventor) Jordan Plotner came on to chronic illness podcast Invisible Not Broken to discuss his upcoming project: Resonance. A musical piece that encompasses his life with Ehlers Danlos and recovery from Chiari Malformation Surgery.
Some personal information, I have been trying the Muldowney Method for Ehlers Danlos. This is some intense physical therapy for someone whose connective tissue can best be described as used post it glue. There are many steps in this program and I had fallen so far back I was starting at getting ready for step one. Again.
I lost. I pick myself up after some figurative foot stamping and start again this time knowing how each exercise is supposed to feel. Even starting over I was able to begin with more knowledge than before.
What have you had to start over? What lessons did you bring with you?
