Well, I have been putting this post off because I knew it was going to be a long one. One with a lot of information; some of which I honestly did not want to hear. Since my appointment last Thursday, I have been mentally processing a lot of the information I learned at my appointment with Dr. Tinkle. This “processing” has led to a few mental breakdowns emotional moments, and I felt it was best to blog about it when I was feeling much more positive and ready to break it all down in writing.
Thanks to all who have been inquiring about Cincinnati, my appointment with Dr. Tinkle, and when I’ll update my blog about it. I am realizing that I have more readers than I thought
I am working on the appointment post but it is a lengthy one and I want to make sure I have everything accurate before I publish it. Tomorrow I am going to listen to the audio tape of the appointment before I post it since Dr. Tinkle was kind enough to let me audio tape what he had to say (which was a lot).
Today I did not spend time in a doctor’s office going over my physical symptoms. Rather, I spent my time at the doctor this morning sorting through emotional symptoms. For 60 minutes every other week, I sit and work through the mental issues and stress that come from day to day life with my psychiatrist of 11 years.
Thanks Uncle Steve for letting me know about this article. It is crazy that since I have been diagnosed, I have actually read two articles in the news about girls with POTS. This is encouraging to me because hopefully the more POTS is out there in the media, the more (hopefully) will be learned about POTS, and therefore researched about this little known disorder.
