1. Medical Stuff:

  • My latest EDS Fun: JAW. FLARE. It keeps dislocating on the left side. I’ve been living on my heating pad. Fun times.
  • 4 Home workouts this week: 21 Day Fix, PIYO Sweat, 10 miles on the Recumbent Bike, Running and a lot of core. I think I may have overdid it a bit. I will be taking it easy this weekend.
  • I had an OMM appointment on Thursday. My doctor kept putting my jaw into place, and it kept popping out. She told me to take it easy to try and get it to calm down. Do you know how hard it is to try not to yawn?!?!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Recovery, recovery, recovery. NO PT, no home rehab. (I wasn’t allowed to because of the septoplasty, so just good ol’ RECOVERY.
  • Monday, I had to get my nose splints out at the hospital. Holy crapballs, those things must have been up my brain hole they were so ginormous. Good thing it went so fast…or I may have slapped my extremely nice doctor. I have so much less pressure now, which is awesome. Feels like I lost a few pounds!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. That session was no joke. I was feeling well so I asked to be pushed. After the elliptical, we worked my neck, upper back, and core. I was so sore the next day. (The good kind of “sore”).
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill, balance work, light weights, abs, scap and glute fires.
  • I saw Larry for my April appointment. He spent a lot of time doing cranial OMM, and putting my ribs back into place. We also talked about using spray and stretch at therapy to help my neck.
  • I saw my shrink on Thursday for an hour. After 15 years, I love that I still have him to talk to, and clear my head with. Like really, really love it. It’s about maintaining clarity and perspective.
