|Blood pooling in my feet|
The worst thing about POTS is you cannot do the normal things most people do during the summer. For me going outside and watering my flowers & vegetables can be a heroic achievement in itself. Sometimes they just don't get watered. Simply getting a bath or going to the bathroom is another epic battle. You drag yourself there and back hoping your heart won't be set off too badly. Normally you are not so lucky.
Those who do not have POTS really have no idea how mentally, physically and emotionally exhausting life becomes. Some think you are lazy, whiny or just plain annoying and want nothing to do with you. Do they honestly believe we chose to lead a crappy life where we cannot do something as simple as going on an all day shopping trip? Or going to an amusement park in the middle of the summer? Give me a break!
Here's to another summer where I'm left searching for answers to really get better and when I mean that, I really mean better. Not like those on these forums with a signature full of medications and they still cannot do anything...
Nope, I am looking for the real deal fix.
