I'll Make This Quick

I am really tired and not feeling good so I will keep this short. My primary doctor agreed to more iv fluids, for the next 3 weeks!  I increased my meds for sensitivity (which yes are really, really, helping)! And we talked about having me hospitalized for my GI problems, but we have no idea when or IF that will happen, so I'm not even going to worry about it at the moment lol.
My joints have gotten much worse this week, right now I have both wrists, both knees, and both ankles wrapped up, if I don't they hurt, and crack all the time, and I feel very unsteady like my joints are going to give out on me.  I feel like an old lady, but I really can't complain, I know there are girls with joints problems out there worse than me.
 Anxiety has been kicking my butt too, but I don't think its the kind caused by Dysautonomia, I think its just cabin fever related you know? 
I can only remember 2 questions... does my heart rate go all over the place?  With meds and physical therapy I'm doing pretty well.  The highest we have ever caught me was 133. I get uncomfortable when my heart rate is even 100 when I'm resting, and I know most of you girls with POTS get heart rates way over 133. I can't imagine what getting heart rates of 160 or 180 or something must feel like!
What is your favorite Bible verse to read when you don't feel well
Isaiah 58:11.

  1. You may have already answered this at some point before, but what kind of physical therapy do you do that helps control your heart rate? I go to physical therapy for my pelvic and bladder issues....I never even thought about it for heart stuff, but that makes complete sense.
