I'm so glad it's Friday! This week has been exhausting...so exhausting that I'm too tired to write about it... I can feel a crash coming on (the lymph nodes in my neck have been hurting like crazy the past couple of days), but I felt the need to write a quick update.
I'm being considered for a couple of CFS research studies.
I don't know if I'll actually get chosen, but I'm excited about the prospect. I've never been a research guinea pig before, but I'd pretty much do just about anything (productive) to help advance CFS research.
The two research studies I'm trying to volunteer for are the Proteomics of Cerebrospinal Fluid in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome through Georgetown University and a CFS genetic study through the University of Illinois at Chicago.
I've been in touch with both research groups and will be participating in a couple of initial screening interviews. Here's hoping!
Today's Activities: work. Today's Most Annoying Symptoms: exhaustion, mild headache, pain in neck lymph nodes, asthma attack, diarrhea; active eczema on left and right underarms, left hand, and right ankle.
