You Know You Have Pots When...(Silly Post)

Recommended Posts

This was a silly list I came up with, thinking about how to make light of how debilitating and sometimes humiliating POTS can be :) People have been adding to the list and coming up with funny, great lines - feel free to do so and I'll add them in!

Hey I enjoyed those. I particularly liked:

You actually want to go to school and work

Id add the following:

You know its POTS when:

- an 80 year old at the doctors on a ventilator stands up to let you sit down.

You know you have POTS when...your children don't have a toy doctor's kit; they just borrow your real one.

My children love to play with my blood pressure cuff, stethoscope, thermometer, and pulse oximeter, and they use empty IV saline flushes to give me "shots."

You know you have POTS when...

ALL of your socks are hospital-issued with a non-skid bottom :rolleyes:

Not sure who's online business site I saw this on but it was someone running an online business(they have POTS) and they were selling a shirt that said: "Drop It Like It's Pots", so if you can relate to that you know you have POTS (or care for someone that does).

I love all of these! I'm going to compile all the comments and repost at some point.

And thanks Julie! She was worth the bed rest nightmare :)

When you're 15 and you get mail from AARP. :)

When others ask you where you found that blue lipstick you are wearing.

When you can see the stars every time you take a shower - anytime of day, inside.

When you have all the "fun" of being drunk at every social event... even in Church.

When you wear your Pjs so often your children think you should go on "What Not To Wear"

When going to the market really does feel like climbing Mt. Everest.

When you can get the "sea sick" experience from the comfort of your own bed.

When you don't need to do a spin class to get your heart rate up to 160. Drying your hair gets it there just fine, thank you very much.

When you just put new batteries in you BP machine and it still can't can't give you a reading.~

When you have a chair in you shower and your still a kid @ heart ~

When you thought they named it POTS because you are on the pot all the time ~

When you can't pronounce anything right without a long explanation of what is wrong with you ~

When you find the cereal in the freezer ~

When you can't drive your motorized wheelchair in a straight line ~

When all the EMT's know who you are ~

When your fridge has more IV's than food in it ~

When your bedroom looks like the er ~

This one's a little gross, but I'm getting over a C. Dif. infection with POTS and you know you have POTS when you wake up your family to show them your semi-solid brown (finally) stool and they all cheer and give you high fives. I know other people with C. Dif. probably get excited about that too, but I think the POTS thing takes it to a whole new level of excitement!!
