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

Roses and Thorns

Written by Katie. Posted in About Me, Random

Rose:  I got to Skype my brother for a whole hour tonight.

Thorn:  I can’t shake this asthma flare, sinus pressure, and cough.  I have been taking 4 nebulizer treatments a day, sleeping propped up, and walking around stinking like Vick’s Vapor Rub and cough drops.  I’m desperately trying to avoid another doctor’s appointment and a steroid pack.

Fatigue, School, and some Randoms Mixed In

Written by Katie. Posted in Random, Teaching

I feel like I’m in a blog slump.  I’m pretty sure it has to do with energy, or my lack thereof lately.   I’ve been sleeping like a fool lately when I get home from school.  I walk in the door.  I rehab.  And then this tiredness hits me like a brick.  It’s a tiredness that I’ve never experienced before this year of sickness.  In fact, I wish there was another word for it because I feel like “tired” or even “fatigue” does not do it justice.
