1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 NEEDED hour with my shrink.
  • 1 NEEDED infusion.
  • 1 PT appointment. They worked me hard! Gotta love tough love.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • Still having some increased POTSy symptoms like more blood pooling in my feet and some sleep struggles. However, I will definitely take this week over last week. Working on resetting and recovering. Working on me.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I met with a new primary care doc, and I really liked her. This has been my missing link from my medical team for a while. I am optimistic she will be able to take over, AND she does OMM too. Bonus.
  • 1 Day of PT. Elliptical, bike, small weights, foam roller, and OMM!
  • 2 Days of Home rehab.
  • I went to Indiana on Wednesday for a TMJ follow up. My specialty mouthpiece was adjusted and I had PROLOTHERAPY from a doc other than Dr. Cantieri. That was a first. Dr. Klauer did my jaw, upper neck, and inside my mouth. I wasn’t even that sore.
