I’m starting (crossing fingers) in March, a POTS rehabilitation exercise program. It’s by a place in the States, that did an rehabilitation study. The study is done now, but your family doctor can email the people from the study their office information, and they will email your doctor (or specialist) this package full of files. You can work at it on your own like I will be, or you can do it with the care of your doctor.
It starts for people truly deconditioned by the stupid illness, to start with a Premonth 1 and Premonth 2 exercise plan, then you start exercise months 1-4 and I believe with an added 2 months to help you stay on a life long plan. I wanted to start this month, but I got a bad kidney infection and could barely move. So here’s knocking on wood to start March 1st. I will let you all know how I feel it goes for me. I would love a heart rate monitor watch for when I go, but I can’t afford one right now. Maybe next month when I get my GST cheque.
So anyone who reads my blog on a regular basis knows I like to do small craft things like knitting, gardening, etc. I am starting loom knitting right now. I got myself the Martha Stuart loom knitting kit which comes with a whack load of pegs and loom boards that, that alone would cost way more than the kit itself. I am actually really enjoying it!
What I am thinking of doing, since scarves, etc. don’t sell well online on places like Kijiji, etc. (not for what they cost to make even usually) so I would like to spend this Winter, into the Fall working on a bunch of knitting projects, and try to possibly sell them at a craft sale if I am well enough to do one. I very well will not be well enough, but I want to get some pieces started. Regardless I will sell them online. I would like to get into more crafting ideas by then too and see what I can do to go with my stuff. We shall see!
Valentine’s weekend was great. My dad got home from his trip and had gotten me an amethyst necklace I wanted on his trip and brought me up roses 🙂 I completely forgot that he gets my sister and I them each year. I had missed him so much!
