This is AD. (Autonomic Dysreflexia)

“So I came up with the 4 P's of AD. It's kind of my own checklist to figure out what is wrong with my body. I check (1P) Pee first. Is something wrong with my catheter, do I have a UTI? If it's not that, I move on to (2P) Poop. Have I gone to the bathroom lately? Am I constipated? If it's not that then lastly I move to (3) Pain. Do I have a cut, bruise, pressure sore or ankle twisted? Have I changed my position lately? The one that falls in the "Other" Category is (4P) Pleasure. Sex. Enough said. “- Guest Blogger: Jessika Kattah “It’s that Wheel kind of Love”
