jlmahon Posted May 21, 2009 Report Share Posted May 21, 2009 I was doing really well until a few days ago. My body decided to go haywire and act up in all ways possible (blood pressure drop when stand, small fiber neuropathy pain, etc). I passed out at PCP's office so he sent me to the urgent care center for IV Fluids and to get some labs. Today I'm resting due to exhaustion from the major dysautonomia flare...not to mention I can't do much without my blood pressure dropping. While I don't expect anyone to understand how I feel, I don't expect people (expecially close friends and mom) to judge me. My mother called today and said her legs hurt all the time but she still goes about her life. A while later, my friend called and said it's no big deal since it's not life threatening. Do they think I can magically feel better? So frustrating. Apparently, my quality of life isn't important and I should just force myself to do whatever even if I pass out?! I'm generally a happy, energetic person but sometimes people make me feel like dirt. I'm sure you all can understand. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
