1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had my monthly Dr. Larry appointment on Tuesday. We worked on updating my needed work accommodations for the approaching school year.  He also did his usual magical OMM on my ribs, neck, and head. These appointments are like tune-ups to help me function until the next appointment.
  • I saw my shrink on Monday. Love him. Love gaining perspective with him.

Happy August, friends! I have to admit, my reaction to August is always mixed; I know there is still more fun and relaxation to be had, but I also know that life will soon go back to the “fast” pace that is often hard for me as a zebra at the end of the month…Sooooo, I am working hard on living in the moment, and not projecting.  Easier said than done, but I am trying!

For the foundation, Gympalooza is coming up on August 23rd! You can check out the FREE event here:

Anyways,

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT. The usual drill. Lots of cardio and strengthening and I ended with cranial OMM.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • Had my six month cleaning at the dentist. Still no cavities at 32. Trying to keep the streak going!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab: Recumbent Bike, and floor strengthening.
  • Zero doctors and zero physical therapy (my therapist is away right now).
  • I am officially scheduled to see Dr. Lavallee in July! It will be my first time seeing him since he moved from South Bend to York, PA. The road trip will be a lot but I am confident it will be worth it. That man is one of my heroes.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. No PT this week.
  • I had OMM on Thursday for my neck and upper back. My ribs are definitely being stubborn lately about staying put, but my doctor was able to work them back into place. Now, if I could just figure out how to keep them there! (I know, I know. More strengthening).
  • I got a wiggle seat! My physical therapist recommended it; especially for long car rides. It keeps me moving, so my joints don’t stiffen up as much, and it helps with posture, while making me use my core more.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I had a really rough weekend of rib subluxations, stomach flu, and migraines from EDS neck pain so when I arrived to therapy, I had had it. I immediately burst into tears…It’s been a while since that happened but my amazing therapist was able to calm me (and my pain) down with a stern pep talk about pacing and listening to my body, cranial therapy, and rib OMM.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill, balance work, and floor exercises.
  • I have been trying to drink more and more water. I have been feeling so dehydrated lately which does not help my POTS issues.
