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.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I saw my shrink on Tuesday. Mental health…just as important as physical health!
  • I saw one of my OMM docs on Thursday. My left side was way out of whack. Thankful for gentle manipulative medicine to get me back in place.
  • I’ve been struggling with a Gastroparesis flare this week. Hoping it will pass much sooner than later.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had an infusion on Wednesday. I am starting to notice when I need to go. I begin to feel more POTS symptoms, and more fatigue. I am so grateful I am able to get fluids with ease. It really does feel like it helps reset my system.

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.
