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

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I am beginning to incorporate more breathing exercises into my program. I do way too much breathing with my ribs and chest, and need to do more with my diaphragm.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. The usual.
  • I saw my shrink on Tuesday…such a valuable hour.
  • I saw Larry for our monthly appointment on Wednesday. He did a lot of OMM work on my first rib, neck, and jaw…over an hour and 20 minutes. And we did a lot of laughing. Those appointments are my fave.

What. A. Week. I felt like a hamster on a wheel for most of it. Whew.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. That is it for the week. Fail.
  • 1 Infusion at Sparrow. So far, so good. It has definitely been worth the three hours of sitting for each one.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Cardio, scap strengthening, and gentle manipulation on my neck.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. High incline treadmill work and floor strengthening with light weights.
  • I had an OMM appointment on Thursday. My jaw and sacrum were dislocated so she spent the time working on getting me back into place.
