Five For Friday 11/29/13

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT. I spent my cardio time on the alter-G (anti-gravity treadmill). I was really proud of myself because I finally learned how to work it all by myself. That is some machine.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Regular treadmill work with high inclines, floor exercises, light weights, balance work, and light stretching.
  • 1 Gynecologist appointment. That’s always a fun time, right ladies?

Five for Friday…a little late 2/27/11

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

I’ve been soaking up every bit of family time since we had Andy’s Army going away party on Friday. Since I have been low on sleep with all of the excitement, my down time has been spent resting, recovering, and replenishing my spoons…Needless to say blogging has gone by the wayside this weekend, but I should be able to get back on track since prolotherapy round 2 is tomorrow and I will be laying low for the next few days.

1.  Medical Stuff:
  • 2 days of PT.
  • The PT student did her In-service on EDS and I went to answer questions and educate the therapists from a patient’s perspective.  I will definitely be blogging more about this.
  • 2 days of Home Rehab.

What Does Sick Look Like?

Written by Katie. Posted in Editorials, Favorites

This post is not meant to offend anyone.  But it is something that I constantly experience on a day to day basis.  I know in my heart people mean well.  And that they want to pay me a compliment.  But I also feel that at times people are trying to make sense of it all when I am told,  “But you don’t look sick.”  “But you look so great.”  “I’ve never seen you look better.” “But you look so beautiful.”
