Anyone else have identity issues from having to give up so much of themselves due to POTS? I was diagnosed 10-21-2013. Beginning a year ago I had quit working after 19 years full time Massage Therapist and instructor---I loved what I did. I don't even have strength to volunteer helping Seniors---again something I loved!
