As I think about the post I just published, something is bothering me. I feel like I need to back up a bit, because I feel like I made “exercising” with POTS and EDS sound like such a simple thing to do. And if you have POTS and/or EDS, you know that it is definitely NOT easy.
I wish they had bumper stickers that said this. Because it’s true. Very, very true.
This is something I never thought I would say. But that’s life. It can change on you in an instant.
I always hear, “You’re purse is huge!”
First of all, I just love big purses. Always have. Probably always will. I like to know I have the space if I need it.
Thank you to everyone who reached out this week. It means a lot. The week has been a tough one, I’m not gonna lie. After my heating pad caught on fire last night, it was the final straw that sent me into a frazzled, overwhelmed mess.
I got permission to post this from my friend, Steph, who is a medical student at the University of Toledo. She also has POTS, and most likely EDS.
Steph had reposted the article, “It’s Dysautonomia, Not Laziness” on her Facebook page after reading it on this site. Well, some dude probably not thinking, and trying to be funny commented by saying something to the effect that it’s just lazy people, with excuses.
