How nice to see you here 🙂
I do two types of physical therapy. Cardio for heart and bloodpressure and weights for neck, shoulders, shoulderblades, back etc. Basically, all of me, haha.
The pt I do for heart & bloodpressure I need to do every day. So a stationary bike every day. EVERY DAY! If I’m not well enough for the bike/having a cold/other I go for a walk (or rest if it’s too bad).
The pt I do for the rest of me, I do every other day.
Both need to continue for the rest of my life! Yeah… My PoTS is life long (I’ve had it all my life so we know for sure) and my joints are in such bad shape that I have no other choice. For instanse, my shoulders aren’t really attached where they should, they’re pretty much hanging on by my tendons. Yeah…
The daily cardio is quite bad for my PoTS, it makes me worse than I already am.
But don’t go and feel sorry for me, I give nobody permission for that! Because I don’t feel sorry for myself! There are all kinds of things we need to learn to live with. My PoTS have gotten worse every now and then during the years and I’ve gotten through it every time. I learn to live with the changes that come. I find ways to have (some) balance. I’ve made it so far and I will keep going!
I had my lovely WeightWatchers shirt to the gym today, I love the color 🙂 I have one with ViktVäktarna written on it too (the name in Swedish) but… it’s a biiiit to… tiny, haha.
I need a haircut 🙂 Aaand speaking of it, look how my hair looks after!!!
I figured a crazy look would go with crazy hair 😛
I made it 30 minutes on the bike today, but I had to go a bit easier. I also found out that the back support on the bike lean back a little more and that’s great for me! My bloodpressure really likes that 🙂
