Just a "zebra" trying my best to live life to the fullest with EDS and POTS...and loving the ride.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I’ve been on the Ketogenic diet for two weeks now. Days, 7, 8, 9 were awful, but it has gotten better. I learned the trick of drinking broth before bed, and it has made life much better. That tells me electrolytes/salt were low and I must keep them up or I will feel like CRAP.
  • One OMM appointment. We focused a lot on putting my upper ribs back in place. Damn ribs, work with us.
  • One Day of Home Rehab. FAIL.
  • Back to PT next week.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT with a substitute therapist. He was awesome and brought a different perspective to my management. We worked a lot on proper breathing techniques.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill. Bike. Scaps. Legs. Biceps.
  • I am sleeping like crap. I hate these sleep strikes, but if I have learned anything, I know they do not last forever.

It’s been a LONG, ROUGH week. I don’t have much energy for this today, so short and sweet it is!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I saw my shrink on Thursday. NEEDED.
  • I had PT on Tuesday. I love that I have a couple of other friends at PT on Tuesdays when I go. We have our own little club. It’s the cutest.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • I had the stomach “flu” on Monday. On MLK Day which was our day off. It was exactly 24 hours and zero fun.
