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

1. Medical Stuff:

  • No PT this week. All rehab was on my own.
  • 3 days of Home Rehab. So the new treadmill was put together, and then wouldn’t work. After a lot of time on the phone, the company said it was defective and will be shipping another one…So it’s back outside for walking and cardio until the new one arrives.
  • I saw Dr. Rosen on Tuesday for a shrink appointment. Just trying to figure everything out…you know, life things…things like balance, perspective, health.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Lots of scap firing exercises. These help strengthen my upper back and neck to stay out of my neck brace.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Cardio done outside but the exciting news is, my Mom and Dad bought a treadmill last weekend (I usually go over to their house to workout). It just needs to be put together, and I’ll be good to go.
  • I saw Larry for my September appointment. He did OMM, and made sure my body was put together. We realized at this appointment that I had a fever, and likely a sinus infection. I was given an antibiotic.
  • I’ve been really struggling with energy and stamina. I’m hoping that my body continues to adjust to the day to day “grind” and the intense fatigue that I’m feeling will begin to lessen. Fingers crossed…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Our treadmill is broken so I took my walking outside. Don’t get me wrong. I love being outside, but I honestly miss the treadmill for my cardio time.
  • No doctor’s appointments.
  • So much fatigue. I made it through the week but my body is definitely adjusting. By Friday, I was wishing for a coffee IV.
