Coping with POTS

Coping with POTS

I was recently provided with a very well-written article about POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) by a fellow POTSie who sees the same specialist I do. The article was written by the specialist, his nurse, and some of his patients who are in the healthcare field. Please feel free to share the article with friends and family members! ? While I enjoyed all aspects of the article, the part that surprised me the most, mainly due to the fact that…

The Mid Year Book Freakout Tag

The Mid Year Book Freakout Tag

I saw this tag over at Jacquie’s blog, Rattle the Stars, and decided to participate! Thanks for your inspirational post, Jacquie! ? (Like, a month ago, but hey!) I guess since it’s the middle of July, we are indeed more than halfway through 2017 already. Mind blown. Given that I suddenly have a lot of time on my hands, I’ve made it a goal to read a lot this year. It’s going pretty well so far, so let’s see what I’ve…

A POTSie Life For Me

A POTSie Life For Me

Yesterday was a very overwhelming day, but I’m going to try my best to make it somewhat comprehensible. After six months of waiting (seriously, I scheduled this appointment in January), I finally had my appointment with Dr. Wilson. He’s a neurologist who specializes in POTS and has patients come from all over the country to see him. And now it was finally my turn!

Share Your World: July 10, 2017

This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this! How do you like to spend a rainy day? Strangely enough, today is a rare (as of late) rainy day! Which makes me so happy because I honestly prefer rainy days to sunny ones; it’s the migraineur in me. As I don’t work anymore, one day is not any different from the…

Happy 10th Birthday, Luna!

Happy 10th Birthday, Luna!

You may have some idea from following my blog that my husband and I are crazy cat people. Indeed, we are owned by seven feline companions, at least five of which are related. To learn their specific and individual stories, check out my kitty posts from last summer here and here. But today is a monumental day in our household, because our oldest kitty, Luna, is celebrating her 10th birthday!

It’s July; What Am I Reading?

It’s July; What Am I Reading?

I have a reading problem. It’s amazing the number of ways that statement could be interpreted… I mean…   (And yes, those are my TBR shelves…or at least two of the three…but the third one is really just a single cube shelf…) But no, what I really mean is, I have this problem where I can’t ever be reading just one book at once. The only exception is if I happen to pick up a book that is so good…

Share Your World: July 3, 2017

This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this! For your main meal do you prefer sweet and sour, hot and spicy, spicy and sweet, bitter, salty, bland or other? I have a love/hate relationship with food. I don’t often eat a “main meal.” I have to consume so much fluid in an attempt to control my POTS symptoms (it usually…

…That Surpasses Understanding

…That Surpasses Understanding

For the past week or so, something has been happening to me that I can’t explain. My sleep has been a bit off-kilter, although this isn’t unusual. Since I don’t work anymore, my circadian rhythm somewhat resembles this: Anyway, on some days, I’ve found myself awake very early, between 4 and 5 am, unable to sleep anymore. Ok, whatever. Not a big deal. But once the sun comes up, it starts. A near-skin-tingling anxiety that has me pacing, sitting on…

Happy First Blogiversary!

Happy First Blogiversary!

Today is my one-year Blogiversary! Part of me can’t believe I’ve managed to keep it going but the realistic side of me isn’t surprised given the events of the past year. So I guess it’s time to tell the origin story, because I don’t think anyone really knows it. Life was not going well for me last year, especially around this particular time last year. I had already suffered through most of 2014 with endometriosis, but 2016 had it in…
