Is there any way someone could run my document through their word counter and see if I'm crazy, or if I really am that far off? It would be helpful to know by how much, especially as we get closer to the end of the month.

This word counting tool (www.wordcounttool.com/)gives me an identical result to FocusWriter, which tends to be within a couple of hundred words of the NaNo wordcount. From experience, MS Word is likely to be within a thousand of the same total, even over large documents.
Try the online word counter - if you get a hugely different total it's something weird going on in MS word.
(Might also be a good time to back up the file .)
You've met Siana. Your mind is now lost.
Just don't mention the H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks...

I"ve decided to move forward with it as is, for now, but also save a copy as a text file, in case it is the formatting that's causing the problems. At the end of the month, I'll compare the two and see how far off I am, and if it's a lot, go with the lower number.
