Could I get your help? UJAM Singing Contest!

It's been a long time since my last post and it's because I have been busy singing. I am constantly learning new things and trying to challenge myself to sing better and better. POTS certainly sets me back at times because breath control assumes you have a normal functioning autonomic system. hehe!

After a lot of soulsearching, crying and days of feeling lost and hopeless, I have decided that singing is what I need to do with my life. Even if I am not successful and make no money at it, it does not matter. I need to sing because it makes me feel whole and happy.

I have entered a contest and I desparately need your help in order to keep my entry in the Top 10 until February 5th. For this entry I remixed the instrumental, wrote and sang the lyrics.

You can listen to and vote for my song at this link.

To vote for it, just click on the Facebook like button on that page. If for some reason you do not have a facebook page, then please consider sharing it on other forums, blogs, on your facebook wall and on twitter. I cannot do this without you guys!

I have almost a full 2 months to keep the competition from taking over my spot. This will not be easy at all, but I have to try to do this. Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe, who are both award winning composers, will be judging the entries!

And with all of this singing stuff, I am finally showing my face too. Please check out my video and it's nice to be able to show you a more personable side of me. Text can only do much.

Hi Dana, ive been following some of your posts on, and i find myself agreeing with a lot of your opinions in regards to cutler and dmsa. Anyhow, i was just curious how your journey is going and if the dmps is doing good. Thanks Dana......Isaiah

I saw some great improvements with DMPS, but I was unable to keep up with it for a few reasons. 1) I am dirt broke. 2) hives! 3) I am lazy! I think I function at just a high enough level, that at times, I get unmotivated to continue. I know that sounds terrible and pathetic, but I think subconsciously that's what I feel at times.

I plan on starting up again, but I am having some unrelated health challenges. I managed to get bronchitis and I was waiting for that to be completely healed up before I continued. That bronchitis then triggered an Epstein Barr flare up which sucks.

Some of the good effects I felt from DMPS have faded because it has just been soo long. I haven't chelated for months now. My vision isn't nearly as clear as it was a few months back. However I have no doubt though if I go back on it, I'd begin to see the same improvements again. Even with the life threatening hives I got the one time, I don't regret taking DMPS like I did DMSA. haha!!

Just be sure to take it easy and take the supplements Cutler recommends. I don't think he is all bad, but I do believe his protocol success rates are blown way out of proportion.
