Pretty much sums it up…
Late again. I am noticing a pattern. If I have a crazy week, then by Friday night I have about one spoon left which I need to use to get ready for bed instead of blogging. Last night I was also covered in Vick’s Vapor Rub from head to toe and had to do a couple of nebulizer treatments to get my asthma under control. I am really, REALLY trying to dodge a trip to urgent care. Anyways, here are my “five + 1″ for this week….
1. Medical Stuff:
- 1 Day of PT
- 3 Days of Home Rehab
- Had another appointment with Larry to help with some of the rib and neck pain I have had lately. He did some GENTLE manipulations. No assignment is due until my July appointment.
- Awesome appointment with Dr. Rosen. Theme: Evolving.
Dear Angels Who Watch Over Me,
I just want to say thank you for protecting me this morning when I was hit by an armed bank robber going 100 MPH during a high speed police chase. I was a little freaked out when I counted 26 police cars whiz by me as I drove to a doctors appointment, and you must have known. You guided me safely into the right lane where I stopped as more police cars sped past me.
Dr. Rosen asked me at my last appointment if I wished I was never diagnosed with EDS. I was already emotional and actually got kind of angry at his question. Without any hesitation, I snapped back that of course I wish I didn’t have EDS.
After I left my appointment that day, it was as if Dr. Rosen’s question was haunting me. I could not get it off of my mind. I realized as I thought more and more about it that the answer to that question is not as black and white as I thought it was at the time. I took that question with me to therapy. I took it with me to Georgia. I sent my Aunt Mada a Facebook message about it to see what her perspective was since she lives a full and active life with MS. And then I thought about it some more.
Here is the tentative schedule for the EDS conference in Baltimore on July 21-23. Hopefully handouts from sessions will be able to be downloaded and printed, since I do not think it is in the cards for me this year. It looks like a lot of good info is being presented, and Dr. Grubb is even presenting about POTS. I will definitely shoot for next year’s conference!
