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

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I picked up my new glasses. Bad news…they are still making me sick. What the heck?! I have never had this problem before. I will be making a call on Monday.
  • I had my 6 month dental cleaning. 33 and still no cavities!
  • I went to U of M on Tuesday to see my GI doc who specializes in Gastroparesis. I am managing fairly well, so he rewrote my Domperidone script (I only take it for flares), and we discussed going Gluten Free for a month to see how I feel. He busted out laughing when I blurted, “BUT I’M ITALIAN.” We talked about how it really is not that daunting, and we both came to the conclusion that it would be worth a month of trying.
  • Stupid, stupid, POTS induced insomnia. I don’t have time for no sleep!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I went in the morning since we had the day off for President’s Day. All I have to say is morning PT is a lot easier for me than afternoon PT.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I went back to the eye doctor for a prescription check since my new reading glasses have been making me sick. Right away, my doc said it was different. I remember my first appointment when I got the initial prescription. I was having a really sick POTSy day and I was barely sleeping. I am willing to bet that that had something to do with it.

I have a lot of pics from this week. I am sad I can’t post! : ( Hopefully soon…!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I saw Larry on Monday for cranial work and gentle manipulation on my ribs, neck, and jaw.
  • 3 Days of Home Rehab. Strengthening, cardio, and more strengthening…
  • I picked up my new reading glasses last Friday. I gave it a week to get used to them, but every time I have tried to wear them, they make me feel really sick. So hi, ho, back to the eye doc I go.

I still can’t post pics, so for now, just words will have to do…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I was supposed to have PT on Monday BUT after 12+ inches of snow, I had to cancel after watching many, many cars get stuck on our street.  Soooo, I walked to my parents house and used their treadmill and strengthening equipment instead. No excuses.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had prolotherapy yesterday! It had been six months…Probably about a month too long…We got to Indiana without any problems. I got my zillion shots, and have been laying low since. Now, we will see if I can last another six months.
