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

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Gentle neck manipulations and a LOT of cardio. I also started on the weight machines this week.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. I rocked my cardio old school to Bell Biv Devoe. No judging.
  • Sunday, I decided it would be a good idea to run up my parent’s driveway and into their house from my car. However, my body had another idea when I slipped on a patch of ice and landed on my face. Incredibly, I only broke my pinky and scraped my knee. It happened so fast, I have no clue how I managed that, but I all I know is that it could have been MUCH worse.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Circuit training and more circuit training. For the record, one minute of running in place with a thera-band around my ankles feels like 30. Ooof.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill, floor, and core strengthening.
  • I saw Larry on Monday for cranial-sacral therapy, acupuncture, and cervical OMM.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Lots of cardio and scap work.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Treadmill and core strengthening.
  • I saw one of my OMM docs on Wednesday. My jaw and OA joints were our main focus. They were “the joints of the week” that didn’t want to stay in place. : )
  • Thursday, I saw my shrink, Dr. Rosen. We joked about starting our 17th year together and the need for diplomas. But the truth is, I don’t ever want a diploma. I think there is a place for always working on our mental health. Zero shame.
  • 3 naps this week! Woohoo!

Happy New Year!!!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • It was a pretty lazy week all around. I had to cancel PT on Tuesday because I woke up with the stomach flu. Eleven family members out of fourteen got it. That bug was no joke.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab which included a 3 mile walk with my sister’s pitbull.
  • No doctors.
