Just a "zebra" trying my best to live life to the fullest with EDS and POTS...and loving the ride.

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.

Five For Friday 2/18/11

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 3 sessions of PT-2 strengthening and 1 soft tissue
  • 2 days of home rehab
  • Used my topical pain cream for the first time.  It did help take some of my back and neck pain away.  I love that it’s not another pill I have to take.
  • Had the Rest and Recovery Talk.
  • Had an hour session with Dr. Rosen.  He definitely helps me get my head on straight.

Positive Pick Me Ups

Today while I was RESTING, I found this blog and fell in L-O-V-E.  It went immediately into my favorites.  Just a lot of great food for thought all compiled in one place. 

As I was reading, this poem really struck a chord with me, especially this line:  “No one else may have the blessings these problems will bring you.”
