Grinch syndrome suffering taken to heart.

by notyouraveragegirl on December 13, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This is my POTS Awareness message. It is formally known as Postural Orthostatic Tachycaria Syndrome. I have been diagnosed with this condition along with about 500,000 other people in the U.S. Sadly, the condition has been defamed by the media and known colloquially as the Grinch Syndrome. This is a terrible conditions for those who suffer from it and many are affected by varying degrees. Fortunately, I manage fairly; however many are debilitated from the condition. Do I really have a heart "two sizes too small" or one that needs to work a bit harder than most. On the contrary, one would need lots of heart to endure the struggles of life, as with any medical condition.
