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. We increased my arm strengthening, along with cardio. Let me just say 2 minutes walking backwards on a treadmill feels WAY longer than two minutes walking forward.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • 1 Hour with my shrink. Cathartic.
  • I had an appointment with my OMM doc on Friday. She took pity on me and also called me in an antibiotic since I was a gross, feverish, coughing, snotty mess.

2. HOLY. MOLY. I have not been this sick in a long time. Like normal people sick. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever run a 103 temp in my life before yesterday. This flu is going through my school and even though I got my flu shot, it still brought me down. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that by Monday, I will feel at least well enough to go to school. Keep washing your hands, people. This is awful and you do NOT want it. Seriously.

3. I can’t even think so this is gonna be lame…and short. Favorite song of the week: “Shine On” by May Erlewine.

4. A food that has been like crack lately for me: SkinnyPop. I can’t get enough.
