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

Five For Friday 10/25/19 & 11/1/19

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

I just can’t keep up every week! I guess that goes with the Mom life now ; )

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Two PT sessions. Cardio, strengthening (increasing weight and resistance), electrical stim, and Manipulative medicine. The magic combo.
  • Four Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill (trying to increase distance/decrease time each run/walk. It’s getting harder but competing with myself makes the DREADMILL more tolerable).
  • My friend got skin cancer a few years ago. Ever since, I make sure I get a skin mapping every year. Came out clear again, thank God.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Two sessions of PT. I think I’m at a point where I’m ready to increase intensity. I love the feeling of progress.
  • Two days of home rehab. I’m trying each time to beat my time on the treadmill. A bit of friendly competition with myself.
  • One shrink appointment = one deeper breath after.
  • Back to infusions! Had my first one in a while. I always marvel at how needed it must have been when I get two liters, and don’t pee for hours afterwards.
  • Flu shot!
