Five For Friday 8/14/15

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of PT. I started a new place for physical therapy…My break from PT is officially over. I am really encouraged by my new therapists and their knowledge of EDS. It sounds like a handful of fellow EDS’rs go there as well. Looking forward to learning more about how to manage this crazy, weird illness called EDS.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • 6 month dental cleaning. Still no cavities but I had a little more bleeding, which my dentist thinks is due to EDS and the fact that the gums are made of connective tissue.

This one is gonna be short and sweet. I have a to-do list the size of an elephant.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of home rehab and no PT. Definitely not enough. Feeling it in my joints.
  • No eye twitch (Henry) in a week! Ear acupuncture is magical!
  • I saw my shrink on Thursday. As always, that hour helped me breathe better and see things more clearly. Love my mental health time.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I was dragginggggg. Days like that, I greatly appreciate my PT’s tough love.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill and floor exercises.
  • I had an OMM appointment on Thursday for cranial therapy. I told her all about Henry (my annoying left eye twitch that will not leave). She decided to do auricular therapy, or in other words, ear acupuncture. She put 3 needles in my left ear, and they actually just fell out this morning. I’ll be honest.  I was kinda skeptical at first, but I have had the most relief I’ve had in a month after she inserted the needles. The human body NEVER ceases to amaze me.
