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

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab. My PT is in North Carolina so I was on my own this week.
  • It was a POTSy, insomnia week. It never fails. My monthly womanly visitor=insomnia and increased POTS symptoms. Not cool. Not cool at all.
  • I saw one of my OMM doctors on Friday. She did some intense cranial work which always makes me feel better. She is also really pushing for me to go gluten-free for six weeks to see how I feel. Are there any other EDS’rs or POTSies out there who have thoughts or experiences about this? My doctor believes it would be beneficial in calming my sympathetic nervous system down since I already know I have a gluten sensitivity, and with having POTS, my autonomic nervous system is already out of whack.

2.  It finally looks like Christmas around here! With how busy we have been, decorating has had to be done in stages, but it is finally complete! I love Christmas. Everything about it. Including the music. I am one of those who sneaks Christmas music in before Thanksgiving. What are your favorite Christmas albums? I am always looking to add to my collection!



3. I signed one out of two of these this week! We are that much closer to announcing our performers for our benefit concert on April 12, 2014! Hopefully the other contract will be signed in the next two weeks!



4. The Live. Love. Michigan, Hold on to Hope, Life as a Zebra campaign is in full force for the rest of the month. I blogged more about it today. You can read the post here, and check out the apparel here!

Please consider helping us reach our goal of $1500 to fund invisible illness research and awareness projects. We thank you so much!



5. Overheard in my classroom the other day:

Child One: What kind of naughty things do you think get you on Santa’s naughty list?

Child Two: Just being bad to your Moms and Dads and teachers.

Child One: I hope I’m not on the naughty list. I said crap this morning and my Dad took away my light up stocking. Do you think Santa knows?

Child Two: Yea. You should go to the mall, sit on his lap, tell him you said crap, and you are sorry. He’s super nice and he will say ho, ho, ho, that’s okay.

Child One: Okay. I am going to say sorry to my Dad and to Santa and to Ms. Katie too.

Child Two: Why Ms. Katie?

Child One: Because I think she talks to Santa.

Child Two: Ohhhhhhh.
