For people suffering from Orthostatic Intolerance, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia, Mast Cell Activtation or EDS. Follow me as I document my struggle towards better health.

Getting ready to start:

Getting ready to start: Today I will purchase my chest strap heart rate monitor and watch and my bed wedge. I am also going to put all of my scheduled workouts for the Levine Protocol into in order to track my progress.

Yesterday I spent much of the day on the phone trying to find out if Medicare or my health insurance provider would cover the cost of a rowing machine required for the protocol. The answer is no on both counts. So instead I have decided to get a month-to-month gym membership at our local YMCA which will only cost around $45 per month. The YMCA has all the equipment I need, supervision and a swimming pool.

I'm going to ask the fitness trainers at the YMCA to help me learn the initial exercises and watch me in case I flop on the floor...which I probably will do on a regular basis for the first couple of weeks. However, they'll soon get used to seeing a woman crawl around from exercise to exercise, clutching her heart and drinking from a 2 gallon water bottle.

Just two more days until I start. The prospect of recovery is VERY exciting!!!!!
