    What should I do about the hot weather?

    Hey, everyone. I hope you're all okay and doing as well as you possibly can be. I'm very desperate for some advice on the weather for Monday and Tuesday this week.

    My health rapidly gets worse in warm weather. My POTS acts up and I faint a LOT, my joints end up hurting really badly, I get muscle cramps and I dehydrate VERY easily. And when I'm dehydrated, my bladder condition flares up and becomes extremely painful.

    On both Monday and Tuesday it's meant to be over 40 degrees, and I can see myself suffering really badly. Does anyone have any tips/hacks/advice for me? I'm willing to try anything. I'm going to keep bottled water in the fridge, make sure I drink as much as I can without popping, and I'll probably stay in bed with my fan directed at me.

    Thank you all in advance.

    Did you find it hard, with moments of triggers, when trying to get into a (sober) relationship with someone new years after being sexually assaulted? #PTSD #PTSD #triggers #Anxiety #SexualAssault #Trauma #needadvice

    I’m 23, I was sexually assaulted multiple times by my then best guy friend while drinking when we were 16 many times. I’ve been seeing a therapist the last 3 years and just got one year sober 1 month ago. As I also just told my therapist about these events last week because I guess after being sober for 1 year right now I can no longer live with my own secrets in my head. Also I can no longer deal with the triggers of my anxiety and panic. So I wanted to know if I’m not alone in feeling nervous/anxious/fearful while beginning new relationship cause of the past. Main fear is lack of control! #Tipsandadvice
