Well, we think I've had POTS for almost two or three years now, but I've only been diagnosed since Feb. Many times Drs. have said I was lying, faking, or just plain crazy, but this disease is about as fake as a BP machine. Here recently I've missed so much school. school is so ready to put me on homebound, because I make them look bad. :( Countless rumors have been started about why I miss so much school. Thank goodness for my two, true best friends (and boyfriend). They stop the rumors in it's tracks. I don't know where I would be without them. At first, people asked questions, and I didn't really mind, but after awhile people stopped asking, or just stopped caring. I guess my biggest problem with this isn't the physical symptoms, it's feeling like I have no control over my own body, and I no longer have a choice in what I can or can't do, and how I go about doing it. This is my story, no it's not a tragedy or anything grand, but it's MINE, and I can write it.
5 Things about me:
- I love toast
- I am almost a black belt in Kung Fu (most people don't know that about me, so y'all should feel special :)) But, I had to quit. :/
- My favorite number is 6
- I listen to literally almost ALL different genres of music
- I LOVE Nemo(:
