Today is a TERRIBLE POTS Day

Today is just SOO awful. How the hell am I supposed to live like this? I just feel like bursting out in tears because my the youthful years of my life have been wasted. If I can feel this terrible at 26, then I'll likely be in a wheelchair at 40.

Dana :-((

why was today so terrible? Did you take the beta blocker? Can you put it down to anything? Hormones? I know this sort of post-mortem drives me crazy, but you've got to keep at this. I know it's difficult, especially as you're so young. You will improve, and life will get better. You have to hang on to that.

Sending strength your way...

Nothing is different. I took all of my meds like usual. It's just summer and with summer the heat intolerance is debilitating. Simply walking around the house my heart rates can be 140+ and even higher if I am trying to do anything that requires me to bend down or lift anything (like laundry, cooking, dishes etc).

I am trying really hard to be optimistic, but it's tough. Really tough. I thought that this summer I'd be doing better and I feel just as bad as if I wasn't on a beta blocker at all. Where do I go from here? I mean I just can't keep doing this!! Basically everything I've wanted to do in my life, I've had to completely abandon because of how I feel. I can't even start a family because of these health problems.
