Yeah Jody--Himalayas not once but several times!
Guess what 14,000 feet did to me! Talk about OI!
Before CFS?? Good question. I'm one of those who have trudged along for decades--crashing, reviving--but never really well. Since there was no doc back then to diagnose me with "anything," I just tried to push through whatever that "nothing" was, that I knew was wrong with me.
So I lived it up :victory: And then suffered for it. And did it again...and again.
Oh, and re: the drippy, leaky aspect of neti potting, I was taught to do a whole bunch strong nasal exhalations (read snorts
) to blow all the potential drips out. It works pretty well.
