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. So many therapy band walks. So many. My butt burnedddddd.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • Larry was back from China (Worlds for gymnastics) so I saw him in the office on Tuesday. My ribs were grateful. A bunch had subluxed, but I left the office moving so much better.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab. Loving the new treadmill!
  • I saw my shrink on Monday. Right now, I am seeing him every other week. It’s a good thing.
  • I had an eye appointment on Monday. I haven’t seen my eye doctor in a couple of years so I was due. It turns out I really am getting older and my eyes say so : ) I have to wear my reading glasses, “more than reading glasses now but not all of the time,” and my prescription is now a bit stronger. Sigh.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab…on the brand new, beautiful, FIXED treadmill.
  • I had to take Tuesday off from school. I wasn’t sleeping enough, my heart rate was too high, and I started to notice more blood pooling than usual, which are usually red flags that I need to slow down and rest. Luckily, I slept three hours that afternoon, and did okay getting through the rest of the week.

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.
