A new beginning for this blog...

So after months of uncertainty and lack of activity I am finally back! I suddenly decided that i hated everything that I had written on this blog so i decided to delete it... which I now sort of regret but oh well... moving on I have decided to move on from my previous content and talk more about my personal experiences or lack of experience in being a 17 year old, I want to discuss topics that affect my generation, as well as using this place to share experiences. I may also talk about my medical experiences in order to help others and hopefully find people in a similar position. I want to fall back in love with what I started in January and use this blog more frequently and hopefully grow my audience.

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

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.
