Hi everyone. Sorry that I have been MIA for so long but, as many of you may have guessed, I haven't been feeling too well. Thank you for the well wishes! I am not quite up to a long post, but I thought I might try a short one so that you know I'm still alive.
As a POTS sufferer, I "know" that staying well hydrated is essential to my well-being... Well, the know is in quotes b/c I have been super-slack with my salt and pedialyte intake lately, and I paid the consequences. The thing that is interesting about dehydration is that your brain just won't work properly so you aren't always rational. For example, I should know better than to let myself get dehydrated, however, the worse it got, the worse I was about hydrating. So, my hubby, parents, and doctor all teamed up on me and finally got it through my thick skull that I needed more pedialyte and guess what...I feel a lot better. I'm still in a mega down-cycle right now, but I was barely able to move for about a week there. So, the moral of the story is: STAY HYDRATED! I'll be in touch soon this time!
