  1. Hello, my name is Madison. I am 17 years old suffering with POTS. I have a diagnosis but nothing is working in terms of medication and lifestyle changes. I have been trying to find an answer to help me live a normal life instead of being sick and wanting to pass out all the time, but no one seems to be getting close to finding an aid. This scares me because I am about to go off to college and will have to get a job and walk around campus and I want to be better by then. But anyway, with the topic I am in high school currently. I am trying to stay in school as much as possible but it is like a marathon getting from class to class. I dread having to get up to go to school because I feel absolutely awful everyday. With this people have suggested homebound schooling but I cant do this or any of the IEP/509 plans if that what its called because I am also in a college program at my school that is attached to my highschool. So if I go to homebound schooling, I wont be able to get my associates degree when I graduate hs which is what I have been working on for four years. I am scared of the school calling truancy because it can get my parents in trouble. I cant be homebound or have those health plans so I am not sure what to do to get the school off my backs about my attendance. I just want to get better because my POTS has been ruining my life. Please let me know!
