Small victories count

Recommended Posts

Well - over the weekend two female friends boasted about their recent accomplishments: one changed her front brakes and one ran a marathon. I certainly celebrated with them but also thought: as a POTS Sufferer - what small victories could I celebrate? ( I am assuming that everyone here knows that mechanical labor and  ANY form of speeding would be counter-productive ? ) -- So - here are MY small victories: I cleaned my fridge Friday, I cleaned my shower today, I WILL attend my daughters dance recital.   And - on top of that - I have only been reconditioning from a flare for 4 weeks. 

Anyone who knows what it is like to become bedridden from the simple act of brushing your teeth will know that THIS IS VICTORY!!!!!!!

Got to go sit on a saddle! Not on a horse, but working toward that goal by end of summer. We named the "riding stump" woody and thoroughly confused the horse. Lol! Only passed out once so we call it a success.

Well...I made it to my primary care doctor today after rescheduling twice. I wanted to shave today but that'll probably have to wait till tomorrow. Never been this long without a shave.

Some amazing accomplishes!   It is times like these that having a like button would be really handy!

At work while talking to a client, I got really severe abdominal pain out of the blue.  I managed to stay focused, even when feeling pain and light headed - with the client non the wiser.   The pain went as quickly as it arrived.

I DID IT!!!!! I went to my daughters dance recital ( drive to and from, rehearsal, restaurant and recital = 11 hours in all ). The recital was over 2 hours long, in a huge college auditorium cramped full, loud music, flashing lights, applause - you can imagine. With my eyes only focused on my special dancer I made it through and am glad that I did. I had been dreading it for weeks, afraid of not being able to be conscious through the whole event, but I did - and I am so proud!!! And my daughter was sooo happy to finally have me there with her! 

To all of you fellow heroes: Salute!!!!!!
