This is going to be disorganized and full of spelling errors and grammatically incorrect. Today it’s been 2 years since my life completely changed. I had surgery and when it was finished, my life has never been the same. I’d known what fatigue was, I’ve had hypothyroidism since I was in the 3rd grade. I … More It’s okay to not be okay.
I have heard this so many times growing up and now that I am grown up, I find myself saying it with almost every Instagram post.

My afternoon and evening were spent cleaning the house which, I accomplished, but was completely exhausted after. I … More P.O.T.S. Episodes
August came and I am ready to say goodbye. I will never say that things could not be any worse, this month has shown me that anything can get worse. Discouraging right off the bat, that’s not how I pictured this blog post to be and I don’t intend to leave it that way. During … More Where Did my Health Go?
July 29th: Chris and I came home from Washington, D.C. We made it home sometime around 5 or 6pm. I unpacked and started the laundry while Chris dropped our sweet pup (Bailey) off with his dad. We needed to pack and be up the next day by 6:30am. We were going on a beach … More POTSie at Sunset Beach
