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. No exercise. Just OMT and LOTS of heat and stim to get me travel ready because of my angry, spasming ribs.
  • One MASSAGE to calm down my angry, spasming ribs.
  • One appointment with my OMT doc to work on my angry, spasming ribs. Are you seeing a pattern, here?

Five For Friday 6/2/17

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. It was after field day so I had been running around in the sun for three hours. I had to suck up my pride and admit that it was probably best if we did heat, stim, and OMT only. That’s really hard to do sometimes.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • No doctors. I am trying to keep my schedule clear these last weeks of school, because I have learned from other years how hard the end of the year is on my body. Maybe I do get a teeny-tiny bit smarter with age…it’s all about pacing… ; )

Holy MOLY, this was a crazy week. But I’m still standing…Barely.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Not proud of this, but this was one of those weeks where I had so much other stuff going on that I had to cancel PT and miss one day of Home Rehab just to survive/nap/rest instead. Blah.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Lots of cardio and scap strengthening.
  • I saw my shrink on Thursday. It is always the days I think I don’t need him, when I realize I need him the most.
  • I am sleeping like crap. Too much going on.

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!
