Five For Friday 1/8/16

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Lots of cardio and scap work.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Treadmill and core strengthening.
  • I saw one of my OMM docs on Wednesday. My jaw and OA joints were our main focus. They were “the joints of the week” that didn’t want to stay in place. : )
  • Thursday, I saw my shrink, Dr. Rosen. We joked about starting our 17th year together and the need for diplomas. But the truth is, I don’t ever want a diploma. I think there is a place for always working on our mental health. Zero shame.
  • 3 naps this week! Woohoo!

Christmas! Merry, Merry to all who celebrate!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. My diaphragm keeps getting stuck and doing weird things. After my cardio and lat pull downs, my PT worked a lot on my tummy.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Two miles on the treadmill and two miles on the bike. Leg and core strengthening.
  • Not a great week for sleep or gastroparesis. Blah.
  • No doctors.

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.
