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

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab…on the brand new, beautiful, FIXED treadmill.
  • I had to take Tuesday off from school. I wasn’t sleeping enough, my heart rate was too high, and I started to notice more blood pooling than usual, which are usually red flags that I need to slow down and rest. Luckily, I slept three hours that afternoon, and did okay getting through the rest of the week.

2. By this time next week, Life as a Zebra Foundation will have a brand new logo. We won a contest that has allowed us to work with many different designers, through 99 Designs, to develop a logo for free. We are almost ready to pick “THE ONE!” Stay tuned…

3. Last Sunday, we spent the day at my in-laws house, spending time with family, including our Grandma. Talk about a beautiful day overall…food, weather, company.  Oh. And this is how Brad and his Dad showed up. Unplanned.

4. October is Dysautonomia Awareness Month! POTS is the type of Dysautonomia I have. I was diagnosed at 28. One of the strangest parts about having POTS for me is I get sick if I am in water for too long: mainly showers and swimming pools…Anyways, look it up! Learn something! You never know who you could help. Plus, Dysautonomia is not rare. It’s just rarely diagnosed!

I travel to Toledo, 2 hours away!

5. Last night, Brad and I went to seven stores looking for a bathroom trash can. Yup. 7. And still no trash can. I never realized how particular I was about trash cans until yesterday. We live a glamorous life.

(Can you tell it was a slow week?)
