Jacquie802 Posted December 1, 2005 Report Share Posted December 1, 2005 Hi everyone. This post is basically me venting about this lovely thing we all have...POTS...I hate being negative because I know there are alot of ppl on this board alot worse off, this is just the only place where ppl can truely say they understand. I have lost alot of friends because of this illness. Sometimes I can't really blame them...I usually am never feeling well enough to go out for long periods of time. Eating at restaurants makes me dizzy and lightheaded, w/ palps, etc. you guys know the deal. Forget about going shopping, because that's completely out of the question...Then there's family...just because some days I don't look sick ppl think I'm feeling great. Just yesterday I was told to leave my house, because I am supposively fine and just don't want to do anything. I guess I basically am really good at faking test results (ablations, ttt, heart monitors...)don't ask how, but I guess that is what ppl think. I even had an old friend say I am fine....scary thing is she is premed, definately lacks ppl skills though.Sooo, now I am jumping around staying with relatives day after day with no permanent place to stay. since I can no longer stay at my house. I have applied for disability but that takes a long long time to get on, most likely be denied first time around anyhow. I have gone through what little saving I had and I don't want to borrow anymore money from ppl, esp. since I don't even know when I am going to be able to pay them back....Thanks for anyone who decides to read this whole post. I am thankful for you guys being here, the fact that I do have a family, and thankful for what few friends I have left...I know things could be alot worse...they just really do stink right now. Anyhow thanks again for being here I know there are ppl out there who understand.....Take care guys! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
