Physio update

K now feels that we need to get into trunk so some new exercises have been factored in - e.g. hoola-hooping and jiggling.

K and I have also suggested that there is a hierarchy of needs in treatment and that continuing to improve sleep and minimalising night-time micturition are critical, plus digestion and breathing (although breathing is now much improved with me). Resolving fatigue episodes are also fairly critical.

Fatigue is still an issue with me and I am running on adrenaline at the moment. I am also under a lot of stress at work and coping with emotional and domestic 'stressors' which are not helping. The psychological aspect of treatment cannot be underestimated in treating patients with hypermobility syndrome and I am extremely fortuntately well supported by K in this respect.
