Denver TMAU Test Lab survey click here
click to Read more/less

USA survey for anyone who wants to improve Denver TMAU test

begun : Dec22
end : no ending for now

A trainee genetic counselor is working at the Denver TMAU test lab. Probably as part of her training. As a project she wishes feedback on any aspect of the Denver TMAU test and process. You can fill in the survey and/or email her (email address is in survey). It's meant for USA people, but perhaps others can give their view too (as we have so few opportunities).

quote from her rareconnect post

"Hello all! I wanted to make you aware of a research study being conducted to better understand the experience and needs of individuals with trimethylaminuria with a goal of being able to create improved patient and healthcare provider education materials. Any participation is completely voluntary and all responses remain confidential. Feel free to use the contact information within the link with any questions or share the survey with others with TMAU."

101 ways to treat yourself

101 ways for a metabolic Body Odor / halitosis sufferer to treat themselves to boost their morale and make the life experience as good as possible whilst waiting for answers, and also help in searching for answers. It also gets us into the habit of thinking of ways to improve your situation and to thinking of ways out of 'dead end'

1: Use personal-development MP3s. Its better than nothing and your current thought pattern. They seem good enough for extremely rich athletes. Anything to get our spongy brains into a better pattern. How you are expected to react in situations can make a big change to tormentors psychology.
2: Treat yourself weekly/monthly that will be an 'improvement' (to you or your house or whatever). Even if it's something 'insignificant' (e.g. executive chair for sitting at the computer)
3: Go on some holiday once or twice a year
4: Express your feelings : write poetry to try and get in touch with yourself.
5: Focus on what you CAN do
6: List your fears/bad situations on a scale of 1 to 10 and focus on the least-scary ones first.
7: Have little meditation 'timeouts' throughout the day, even if it's just counting to 100. Say, after each meal. To get your mind back. Who owns your mind ?
8: Meet up with other metabolic/systemic/bloodborne body odor or halitosis sufferers. The evidence suggests those with 'internal' odors, especially fecal body odor, cannot smell each other. So you have nothing to fear in their company, and can be 'normal'

9: If you go to a (for example) psychologist, try a few out and decide which is best. If none, then try more. In most 'health' services, they get paid for failure (since it's often subjective and/or efficiency is hard to define). The rule in life seems to be, mediocrity is the best you can expect, poor quality is more likely, and usually the competent ones are much harder to find. So look out for the good ones. You deserve it. Same goes for any 'health' service, including doctors. The sports profession uses this attitude, all of them being very rich and healthy already. It's them being paid for the service, not you.
10: Get a pet
11: Watch a video/read a book/listen to an album each week
12: Download music from Amazon. DRM free
101: Make your own list. You will be amazed what ideas you come up with.

to be continued.

ps, not to be taken literally :)
