Thought I’d give everyone an update on how I’ve been feeling lately. Well, I haven’t been able to do much. Recently been lowering my dose of stimulants and my body is having a hard time adjusting considering I’ve been on stimulants for almost a year now. Fortunately, I’ve noticed my POTS symptoms have overwhelmingly gotten better since lowering off of the stimulants which is fantastic. My feet have been swelling less, my heart rate is going down a little, and my heat intolerance/sweating have been greatly reduced! So this is awesome.
On the flipside, my hunger has increased, my fatigue has DEFINITELY increased, along with my brain fog as well.
Despite this, I’ve tried to do some light exercise lately. I’m going to the gym every other day with my brother to do some light walking on the treadmill. I went yesterday and yeah, I’m having some post-exertional malaise today for SURE. But at least I have today and part of tomorrow to recover.
Missing my friends because I haven’t been able to socialize much lately. Really trying my best to finish out my Anatomy and Chemistry online courses. Anatomy is going well, but Chemistry has been pretty difficult. Oh well, I’m sure it’ll all work out in the end.
So that’s about it for me! I hope everyone is having a good day, and don’t forget to help spread awareness for ME!
Hey everyone! I will be meeting with my Senator’s office and maybe even Georgia Senator Isakson. Someone from his office will be at the CFSAC meeting. Yay! Please call you senator and/or email them. Meet with them if you can. Tell them your story so they know you exist! Go to my website for info on the key players. It’s not that hard. You really can make a difference. Keep the pressure on. http://payitforwardforme.tumblr.com/Senate http://payitforwardforme.tumblr.com/house
