JaneEyre9 Posted August 2, 2005 Report Share Posted August 2, 2005 Hi Everyone,I'm a new member here, though i have been reading off and on for much of this summer. Health Background:I was diagnosed with POTS this May, though my health issues have a much longer history. I have had MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity) since 1999, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), as well as asthma, allergies, and lactose intolerance since childhood. Listed in order of disruption to my life Personal Background:I'm a graduate student at Case Western Reserve University in sunny (haha) Cleveland, OH. I have lived here all my life except for one semester at Wooster College. I studied biomedical engineering, and ironically have been a part of an electrophysiology research lab for the past 3 years.Impressions:I've been so impressed by your compassion for one another, your helpful advice, and your education level about your individual issues. I'm relieved to have found such a welcoming and caring environment. Invisible disability really is a unique challenge. It's so great to meet people who understand that.
