I was diagnosed two years ago with ankylosing spondylitis, and more recently with tuberculosis (latent, not contageous) and a pinched nerve at C6.

Though I had developed a much better sleep cycle, the pinched nerve causes numbness/tingling down my arms through the ulnar nerve. I have a hard time sleeping, generally take some sort of sleeping aid, and end up sleeping too much.

I was diagnosed two years ago with ankylosing spondylitis, and more recently with tuberculosis (latent, not contageous) and a pinched nerve at C6.

I am currently seeing a host of doctors and a physical therapist to manage my issues, but it is hard to keep positive some days. One thing that helped is getting a FitBit. I used to walk between 500 and 4,000 steps per day on average (depending on if it was a work day or not). I am now up to a regular goal of 7,500 steps per day.

Thanks so much for taking the time to tell me about your FindAGrave experiences! Really interesting stuff there.

I'm in an emotional and creative slump right now, so your engagement with some of my work is very much appreciated. (Sometimes it feels like shouting into the void, you know?)

My life plans & goals absolutely include touring the graveyards of New Orleans. Though I've never been there, I am somewhat obsessed with the city and its history. Right now my focus is on getting relocated to NC (aka fleeing MN winter and putting roots into warmer soil.) After that, a trip to New Orleans is high on the list.

Congratulations, by the way, on the massive progress you're making with your novel!

Hi Brittany, I am so happy you have already been blessed to have not been seriously hurt in your car accident. Hopefully by now you are feeling less "shook up" over it as well. emoticon
