There’s always an air of excitement when it is time for me to return to Toledo to either see Bev or Dr. Grubb. I think it’s because it took so long for me to get into them, knowing that they are two of the best Dysautonomia experts in the world. Call it hope, call it an understanding, call it an appreciation for doctors who care and “get it”…call it what you will, but it never seems like a chore to travel to Toledo to see these two incredible doctors and people.

Setting the scene: The following pretty much covers a day in my life at the doctor’s while I was searching for answers, and BEFORE I was diagnosed with POTS and EDS.
I have to be honest. This was a tough week for me…a lot of fatigue, a lot of POTSiness, a lot of back and neck pain. It was one of those weeks that I felt like I was in survival mode.
You have to understand. I am cut out of the same cloth as my Dad. From our sense of humor, to our looks, to our flexibility, to the fact that we both hate change.
We also have the same problem.
1. Medical Stuff:
- This was the week of doctor’s appointments!
- I met my new family doc on Monday, since my last one moved to North Carolina. She went through everything with me and then made the comment, “You are a complicated one, huh?”
