We just got back from a mini road trip down to Kennewick, Washington to visit family. We only went for two days, but it was nice to see everyone. We had a wonderful time our cousins (ages 13 and 14) who we love dearly.
This is the first time I've really travelled since my symptoms got worse last March. My biggest challenge at first was my Gastroparesis, which is sensitive to the slightest excitement or stress. Waking up early and moving around right away upsets it. The combination of being excited for the trip, slightly tired, and having gone too quickly in the morning meant that my stomach was throwing a little hissy fit.
One thing I find helps slightly is Accupressure Motion Sickness Wrist Bands. I've had them since I was 10 and I wear them on every road trip/airplane. I'm not sure if it's just psychological but they do help the dizziness a little.
My name is Lisa and this is my life with POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome)
