  • I have Raynaud's syndrome, but even while in the office, my arms feel like they are immersed in ice water; my right leg will periodically "buckle" and wobble at the knee while I'm standing at a kitchen counter getting my food ready; my alarm goes off at 6:30, and about 2 days during the week, I hit the snooze button the max # of times and am late for work
