Brwneyedchica Posted April 8, 2006 Report Share Posted April 8, 2006 I first got sick with POTS when I was 15 and thus I didn't finish highschool. I did however go through the local college and get my GED before my "class" in highschool had graduated. One of my friends signed me up for a myspace account, where you talk to old friends. It's nice to talk to people I used to go to school with but on the other hand It makes me feel kinda sad. I've always been the type of person with lists of things to accomplish and all of the people I went to school with have bachelors degrees or are in grad school. I struggled through college for several years and only had nursing clinicals to get through but was too ill to continue and faced the probability that I would be too ill to work as a nurse on my feet for long hours. I honestly feel embarrassed to even say that I received my GED and I just feel like a big loser because I really have no accomplishments(unless you count getting out of bed everyday and putting one foot in front of another).... I'm not even able to work right now. I hope that I can do something to feel better about myself in the future when I am feeling more up to it. But right now i'm just sick and struggling. I don't mean to be such a downer but I think that some of you will understand how I feel because my family and friends just don't. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
