A bit more about me and an introduction.

Hi, I am Niamh and I am 17 and from just outside of London. I am currently a sixth form student studying for my Alevels which are: Psychology, English and Art with the view of going to university to study either journalism or psychology... I haven't yet decided and its a decision which is being forced on me very suddenly and not going to lie it makes me nervous but I think part of this blog will be me exploring this. There are many topics in the media today which affect my generation massively however we don't get much of a voice, I want to discuss these topics and give my own point of view on them and get them out there.

I do also suffer from a few health conditions which have effected my teenage years massively one is Hypermobility syndrome which causes me chronic pain, dislocations and sublaxtions. I would love to raise awareness for this conditions well as connecting with other people who suffer with it or similar conditions. 

Niamh xx

I’ve got PoTS...

So for the past 3 years I’ve been suffering with symptoms of what I now know is PoTS. PoTS or postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome is a form of dysautonomia meaning my autonomic nervous system doesn’t work properly. Your autonomic nervous system (ANS) controls vital functions in the body such as: heart rate, breathing, blood pressure and digestion. So in people who have PoTS we experience symptoms such as: low blood pressure, high heart rates, nausea, fainting, pre-syncope, headaches, dizziness, heat intolerance, sickness, food intolerances, fatigue and shortness of breath to just name a few!

School to Sixth form: What I have learnt

Sixth form - two years, where you prepare for yet more exams which "set you up for life". I thought seen as I've got only ten more teaching weeks (AHH that's scary) I would offload everything I have learnt about being in sixth form: What you can expect and how to go about doing your work.

All about tape and why I wear it

I have had to wear tape since November, and I feel now I have enough experience to write about it and my experiences with it. I get asked a tonne of questions as to why I wear it and what it does so I'm hoping to answer all those questions here and put rumours to rest.
