  2. Hi Hillary,

    I found your blog through Pinterest and I LOVE it! You have a lot of great information mixed with a ton of uplifting, sweet encouragement! You are also doing an incredible job raising more awareness about Dysautonomia.

    I was diagnosed with Dysautonomia – POTS with Reflex Syncope in July 2007 and have been blogging about it since July 2009. However, my illness has become so severe that I\’m no longer able to post as often as I used to. :**( I miss writing and reading posts SO much, but I just can\’t sit up that long any longer.

    Well, it is indeed a pleasure to find your blog and I look forward to reading more and getting to know you better. If you get a chance, I would be honored if you would come by and visit my blog sometime. Have a blessed weekend!

    {{Gentle Hugs}}

  3. Hi Teresa,
    Thank you so much for your kind words and for sharing your story. I give you recognition for blogging still even though you are so sick. I am so sorry to hear of your suffering and hope that you will find some relief soon and improve. There are so many treatment options out there but the biggest battles are getting a good, educated, open-minded doctor and also finding some of the root causes for your Dysautonomia. Don’t quit fighting, stay strong. Feel free to write / read on here as much as you can.
    Warm wishes to you,
    H
