I’m always on the look out for a great pair of compression socks. Because I wear these pretty much 24/7, I am frequently looking to buy new pairs of socks. I’ve recently tried buying some Pro Compression socks. I have to say that over all, these are not socks that I would recommend.Continue reading “Pro Compression Socks”
I myself have converted to using reusable cloth menstrual pads rather then using the single use ones readily available in most stores. There are five reasons that I’ve made this decision, but I’ll say that I have no regrets and have no intentions of ever going back. So, what do I like about them?Continue reading “Cloth Menstrual Pads”
Another thing that’s helpful when taking a shower while sitting. Once you’re sitting in the shower, it can be difficult to reach the controls. This little thing makes it so that you can control the water right at the shower head. This makes things so much easier
Once you get a shower chair, it makes it hard to reach the shower head and controls for the shower. Getting this was a huge help. You can put it where you can easily reach it and where it will run on you while you are sitting. The neck doesn’t bend as much or as easily as I would like, but I still like the product and find that it makes showering while sitting on the chair a lot easier.
This shower chair is excellent. It is super light weight so it is easy for me to move around. It’s legs adjust enough to accommodate this short person so I can sit on it with my feet flat on the floor. It easily comes apart which makes it portable so that you can shower while traveling.
Eating a high sodium diet is a challenge. But I need to do it to keep my blood pressure up and to prevent syncope. I use sugar free electrolyte drinks and a sodium chloride supplement to help me get the sodium that I need.
For those of us with EDS, it is recommended that we take high dose magnesium supplements. Magnesium Malate is the form that the body can most easily absorb, so that’s why I choose to use it for my supplementation. This is a nice product. After all my research into the Now brand, I’m pretty comfortable with using their product line.
I am always cold, regardless of what the temp is. This shirt is a big help with that. I bought a black one and found that it layers really well with about anything I want to wear. The sleeves are quite a bit too long, so it would be nice if they sold a petite version, but I haven’t found one.
These didn’t work for me. They didn’t cover enough of my hand to be helpful and they cut into the “webbing” of my thumb. The sizing was weird. Really tight in some places and loose in others.
When you’re short, finding compression leggings or tights that fit you is an interesting challenge. My work around for this was getting compression leggings that are capri and wearing knee high compression socks. This gives me full waist to toes compression. When you’re getting leggings, you’re looking for a pair that has the “tummy control” top. That means there will be compression on the waist line as well as the legs.
