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

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I did so much better this week. 2 Days of Home rehab and 1 day of PT. Three HARD workouts. I’m trying to get my muscles back on track, and they were definitely feeling it this week ; )
  • 1 Shrink appointment.
  • I went back to the ENT about looking at my deviated septum. I got there and they STILL did not have my CT scan from my other doc, so it was pretty much a waste of time. I called and my other doc said he will be sending it for a third time. I’m not exactly sure where the miscommunication is coming from, but I’m really, really hoping the third time is the charm.
  • Had a better sleep week. Praying it continues.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Ugh. Not. Enough.
  • Had to cancel PT on Tuesday because I was POTS-yyyyy and did not want to waste on of my sessions. Sigh. Hoping to get totally back on track this week. My body needs it.
  • I saw my shrink for an hour on Thursday. That hour felt like two minutes. Oof.
  • I had an OMM appointment on Friday. It had been a while because of various circumstances. Trying to figure out how to get more frequent visits in, since it is my main source of pain management.

  • 1 NEEDED hour with my shrink.
  • 1 NEEDED infusion.
  • 1 PT appointment. They worked me hard! Gotta love tough love.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • Still having some increased POTSy symptoms like more blood pooling in my feet and some sleep struggles. However, I will definitely take this week over last week. Working on resetting and recovering. Working on me.
