After 4 1/2 years of being sick though, and 1 of those years being on disability, it's become easier for me to talk about it and accept it.
I created this blog for a few reasons. The main one is that no one knows about POTS. Even medical professionals haven't heard of it. This is a big problem because the Mayo Clinic estimates that 1 in 100 young people have POTS at some point in their life!
The second reason is that being sick has taught me a lot and given me new perspectives. I'd like to share what I've learned with others in the hopes that maybe something I say could bring even a little encouragement to others.
And the third reason is because I've always loved journalling, and this blog is a sort of online journal for me.
