It seems I come across a lot more articles about POTS that are written in the UK, than the US. I wonder why that is…Anyways, here’s the latest POTS article I found. I tend to look for more info about POTS when I am struggling with it more myself. I really hope that articles like this can continue to spread awareness. Yay, Dr. Grubb!

Whether or not this will prove factual, as more studies are completed, it is awfully exciting to me. I have to say that a lot of what she says makes sense. Thank you, Dr. Driscoll for your hard work and continued advocacy!
1. Medical Stuff:
- I love finding EDS and POTS success stories. Here is a link to one of the latest uplifting stories I found…
- Dentist appointment. No cavities but I am too switch from using regular floss to using the floss picks so I am able to hold them with one hand. I showed my dentist how I flossed with my hand that doesn’t have feeling and he suggested I switch to the picks so I can use my right hand only.
- 3 days of Home Rehab.
- 1 Day of PT. On Thursday, I started using this….
My friend Ila, who also has EDS and Dysautonomia recently sent me this blog post she came across to read (If the rest of this post is going to make sense, then you should read the post from the link above first). I read it a few times, and have thought long and hard about this person’s perspective. I totally respect what this person has to say and her experiences with both Dysautonomia and EDS. There are so many things she says that I found myself nodding my head in agreement to. However, there are a few things from this post, that I would like to just bring a different perspective to. I feel that we must keep in mind that when someone blogs, it is one person’s perspective, based on their personal and individual experiences.
I, myself, have to realize that when I post about EDS and POTS, it is from my experiences, and my experiences only; MY symptoms, My struggles, My triumphs, and where I am on the very wide spectrum of both disorders. I know there are going to be things I say along the way that people disagree with, but when I started this whole blogging thing, I knew that was all part of the “game.”
