Hey everyone HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who reads and interacts with this page, and also to say that I am sorry I have been distant as of late but as usual I can only blame the illness with the physical restraints it causes when I have bad days (which are very frequent) and the lack of motivation it causes too!
I was admitted to hospital in October and December just gone and since coming home I haven’t been able to sit upright at the desktop for any length of time to update you all and for some reason my WordPress blog app on my phone wont work anymore, I think it needs an update or something! I also have regular hospital appointments starting from tomorrow until May so this year is busy with doctors and consultants already! I will update you on all of this in the next week 🙂
Anyhow, I am going to be making a little routine in my week going forward to allow for more regular updates and scheduled posts that can be planned in advance. That’s the plan at least!
Some of the more detailed researched posts I am thinking of adding in the next few months include:
POTS Tips: Updated Life Tips to make living with Dysautonomia and Pots a little easier.
Vaccines and Pots – Is there any connection? – an in-depth look at the real science, possibilities and organisations involved.
Can Diet Affect/Help With Your Symptoms? – Discussing diets and intolerance’s involved in our health issues.
Does Weather Really Affect Your Symptoms or is it a load of Woo? – A look at the science behind how weather and air pressure may affect some peoples symptoms, and here’s why!
How Best to Navigate The Health Services System in Ireland – With many, many updated links and resources.
Exercise and Physio for those with EDS or Dysautonomia – A post from an experienced Fitness Instructor who also has EDS and POTS on how best to exercise, stretch and care for your body with these conditions and when is best not to exercise altogether! ( Ok I wont pull the wool over your eyes, it is me, but I actually do hold an Irish fitness Instructors qualification and have more than 10 years experience in the gym and exercise industry in Ireland believe it or not – yes, that was before anyone realised I had EDS! I will explain all in the post!)
