    I Need Some Positive Words ... Feeling a little down ...

    What is something positive that you could share with a chick that needs to feel a little more upbeat? I want to get out of this funk so much. Anything POSITIVE or encouraging or motivating is welcome. Or if you need to vent, that's okay, too!

    Oh lol

    Cardiologist says I have tachycardia, so that's fun.
    Also did a breath test and it turns out I have SIBO so I'm currently getting treated for that (icky tho).

    They did an abdominal ultrasound that showed mild enlargement of my liver (benign so my doc isn't worried about it) and a small non-obstructive kidney stone.

    It's been a while since I've been on antibiotics so I gotta ask - while I'm on antibiotics (doxycycline and flagyl), can I eat normally throughout the day (when my appetite exists)?

    Anyone with #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome ran a fever 🤒 when water in a shower has been run over your head?

    Do any of you #Potsie s run a fever when you take a shower? Spike in heartrate? Drop in blood pressure? You think that you may pass out? But, if you take a bath it isn't as bad, but you find your hygiene suffering? I find that even taking a bath, I have to cover my head with water. What do you do to get through this? I'm on medication, but I can't go on a higher dose cuz of side effects. You know how people feel so "refreshed" and "revitalized" after a shower; that's not me. I feel such a itchy and sticky feeling - like I had just gotten back from the gym (and I don't use hot water - so it's not dry skin) - does anyone else have this? or my heartrate goes even higher afterwards and during. It's not when I get my body wet, just my head. Or I will run a temperature about 100°F for no other reason. And no hot water. Does this happen to you, too? I absolutely hate the way that a shower makes me feel in regards to physical symptoms. I hate that I can't take a shower before a doctor's appointment, because then I'd run a fever when I got there and they'd make me get a covid test (which would normally make sense - so I just don't take a chance).

    So, who else with #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome or any other #ChronicIllness has a terrible reaction to water being ran over top your head? Horrible, huh?!

    What indicators do you have that you shouldn't push yourself?

    I was exhausted. My bf and I were supposed to go out on a Saturday night but after a long drawn out process of getting up and ready for the day I just couldn't rally my energy. We decided to have a night in, After going back to bed and sleeping for a while I thought getting out might at least keep me awake. I suggested we go to the grocery store for snacks.

    It started out mostly normal. I was counting the blocks until we got there. Rationing energy and trying to make it just a bit longer. But once we got in the store I had vivid fantasies of sitting on the ground. Sometimes just sitting down and crying, sometimes just imaging what people would do if I sat down in the middle of a grocery store. A couple fantasies about what people would do if I passed out, but those happen more when I actually feel faint or ill, and not exhausted. I was leaning on anything I could possibly do without knocking over.

    I made it through and we walked home, but afterwards I realized how intense those fantasies were compared to other times when I push myself. It's normally a fleeting thought here and there. This time it was all I could concentrate on. I think this is a fairly good indicator that I was pushing myself too much that night. What are your thoughts?
