February 2008 I became pregant again and it was a very long stressful 9 months.After what happened to Jasmine I was very paranoid about what could go wrong this time.But On October 22,2008 I had a very healthy little boy name Gage Liam.He Just turned 2 years old.He is absolutely amazing.we have a great time together and he keeps me pretty busy.I thank God every day for giving me him.
When I was pregnant with Gage I became very sick.I stopped driving & working.For almost two years I didnt know what was wrong with me I thought I was going crazy.But about 6 months ago they finally figured out what was wrong.I have postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.Heres a little bit about it.
<b>Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome</b> (<b>POTS</b>, also <b>postural tachycardia syndrome</b>) is a condition of dysautonomia, more specifically orthostatic intolerance, in which a change from the supine position to an upright position causes an abnormally large increase in heart rate, called tachycardia. Several studies show a decrease in cerebral blood flow with systolic and diastolic cerebral blood flow (CBF) velocity decreased 44% and 60%, respectively. Patients with POTS have problems maintaining homeostasis when changing position, i.e. moving from one chair to another or reaching above their heads. Many patients also experience symptoms when stationary or even while lying down.
Symptoms present in various degrees of severity depending on the patient. <b>POTS can be severely debilitating. Some patients are unable to attend school or work, and especially severe cases can completely incapacitate the patient.</b>Symptoms of POTS overlap considerably with those of generalized anxiety disorder, and a misdiagnosis of an anxiety disorder is not uncommon.Some patients develop symptoms after experiencing some sort of trauma such as a car accident or injury. Women can also develop POTS during or after pregnancy. These patients generally have a poorer prognosis.Patients with post-viral POTS will also usually improve greatly or see a full symptom resolution. Adults who develop POTS, especially women during or after pregnancy, usually see milder improvement and can be plagued with their condition for life.
Its a very hard illness to deal with.People who dont understand it just think Im either crazy or lazy.Im trying to accept it & deal with though the best I can.
