Hello, and welcome!
I am Lindsay, a 30-something southern Californian who was diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) in February, 2011, after years of symptoms. I also have mast cell activation disorder (MCAD), and suspect an other as-of-yet undiagnosed illness. I decided to create this blog to share with family and friends the difficulties of suffering from a chronic illness and to connect with other dysautonomia sufferers around the globe.
This blog is rather random, and includes posts about the frustrations, the hearbreak, and the humorous sides of POTS. I’m not providing medical advice, I’m not making any endorsements, and I don’t write much about the physical or anatomical aspects of having POTS. I’m just living out loud, wondering where to go from here.
Feel free to send me your questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
