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

Whew!

What a week so far!  Prolotherapy round 4 was Monday in Indiana, I helped host a jewelry party yesterday (what was I thinking the day after prolo?), and I was in Toledo all day today for the POTS appointment I’ve waited six months for…Tomorrow I have PT and then I will get to updating if I don’t crash after therapy. 

"Top" Questions for Y\’all

Written by Katie. Posted in Random

Okay, Brad and I are starting to research and price a few “top” products~A Laptop and a countertop….I know I have quite a few readers up on some of these things so if you could help a girl out, it would be appreciated :)

I need a new laptop. I currently have a Dell but am thinking about a Mac…However, I am concerned the Mac will be really hard to get used to…Any thoughts or any other brands you would recommend?

Power Potion

Written by Katie. Posted in Random

Most mornings I make this smoothy for breakfast.  I have come to really like it.  This drink was recommended to me by the doctor who finally solved the mystery and realized I had EDS.  He named it, “Dr. Joe’s Magic Potion.”  He explained that it has many “power foods” that can help bring down inflammation in the body.  He is a pain management doc (physiatrist), and told me that he has had luck helping some people’s pain with this drink over regular pain meds. 

I have always had a hard time getting in my daily fruits and veggies, so incorporating this into my diet has helped.  Plus I think out of all the ingredients, the ginger root and the fish oil are probably the most beneficial ingredients for me.  I have felt at times that the ginger root has helped calm some of my muscle pain and GI issues.  The fish oil helps with circulation and is also another powerful anti-inflammatory agent.
