Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)

I know that many people have a difficult time understanding ‘invisible’ diseases.  I truly do know because I have one.  It is one of the Dysautonomia disorders that is called Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, POTS for short.  When someone is diagnosed with Dysautonomia.  On the outside, I look fine, unless I am falling on my face in front of you.  There is so much that is involved with Dysautonomia that I thought that I would share some information that I found on the ‘Dysautonomia Advocacy Foundation’ site.Thank you for reading.  And, no this is not part of my A to Z Challenge.
