Six Months in the Blogosphere

6mos, my bloggie. What a journey! I'll try to do a recap soon. Here's what's happening today:

Not sleeping well. Very nauseous today, although everything else seems to be getting better. :) More energy, more focus. I got my compression stockings in the mail today, how exciting! They're really tight and REALLY thick. It hurts a little, but I'm sure I'll get used to it... especially if it helps my circulation! I feel like we've made so much progress lately! The fall semester for CLC starts in five weeks. Let's make it happen! Pleasepleaseplease!

Late afternoon was rough today; my pulse felt really slow. (It was. 53bpm.) I'd been doing well for a few hours, but suddenly I had to lie down. I felt like I could hardly keep my eyes open. But my BP was still okay (105/58), so I just rested. If that happens again I'll get some tea or coffee to try to boost my HR. Does this ever happen to you, POTS patients? Maybe I'm just adjusting to the increased Midodrine or the medical stockings.

Tilt-training - 8 min 45 sec; 10 min. Makes me dizzy and nauseous. Guess it's improving though, right?

Enjoy one of my favorite online videos: Magical Trevor!

    weird to think that it's only bee 6 months. It almost feels like you've been doing this forever.
