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. Lots of cardio, strengthening, and cranial. Revisited the conversation again about how much PT is best for me. I still don’t know if we have an answer. It’s been nearly 4 years, and I’m still learning.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • 1 OMM appointment for cranial, neck, and jaw.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had my July appointment with Larry. Lots of cranial, neck, and upper back OMM.
  • Tuesday I went to U of M for my yearly Gastroparesis check up. I was given an EKG because I am on Domperidone, and everything looked good. My doc wants me to have the Hydrogen Breath Test (because of my flares) which is to check to make sure I have the good kind of bacteria in my stomach. I am also to return in six months for a check up and a meeting with their nutritionist.

Happy Birthday, America!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • One day of PT. First time back on the elliptical after being out of the boot. Also, I worked a lot on scap fire exercises.  My traps love to fire instead of my scaps which gives me a lot of the neck pain (and therefore, headaches) I experience, so it’s a matter of me consistently retraining my scap muscles to do the work.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • 1 Shrink Appointment. Striving for balance in all areas of life.
