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

1. Medical Stuff:

  • One Day of PT. My thoracic was super locked up. We don’t usually crack me, but that day was an exception.
  • No Home Rehab. This is not an excuse; there is never an excuse, but my week was insane and I didn’t get it in.
  • No doctors. Just a lot of everything else!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I am celebrating by pretending my Miralax/Gatorade mixture is a Margarita! Oh, EDS, you are so fun sometimes!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT. The usual.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. The usual.
  • Still navigating our new insurance. It feels like a full time job at times. Ugh.
  • I saw my OMT doc. My ribs and head needed much love. Our goal was to get me headache free before I left. I did feel better so I took that as a win.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Core circuit, cardio, and OMT!
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Interval training.
  • I saw my shrink on Thursday. We adjusted my meds, and I talked. A lot. It is so crazy; I have been seeing my doc now for 18 years. More than half my life. And not ashamed one little bit. Proud, actually to be focusing on my mental health too.

This was a long week…and I’m still standing…barely…oof.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Had my annual pulmonary appointment and breathing testing. I am all good for another year.
  • 2 Days of PT. My ribs and stomach sucked this week which is the reason for two appointments instead of one. I definitely needed more OMT. Stubborn ribs.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Running with my collar. I did okay despite my ribs.
