I met with my new PCP (Primary Care Provider) yesterday. She came highly recommended from people online and other people who had worked with her. We discussed my ongoing health issues, that’s for another post, but we also talked about my team and how she can help make things run effectively. As of right now, this is the first time in my entire life I have a fully functional “team”.
It’s always been a dream of mine to have a group of medical specialists who understand what is going on with me and can work together to help me be the best possible me. There are a lot of different parts to my health that need to be monitored and addressed, so it is really good to have people who understand some of the weirder aspects of my diagnosis like Ehlers-Danos. My current team is comprised of a Physical Therapist, Acupuncturist, Therapist, and Chiropractor. That’s a lot and averaging at least 2 appointments a week it does take a solid emphasis to keep me in working order.
I let my health slip a bit this winter and have been slowly working to try to get better and develop healthier habits so I can continue to live my life on my own terms. Things are changing in my personal life and job, but I’m very excited about the future and everything I’ve been working on. New things are being unveiled soon!
