No, it's not drugs--but you can use various medications to treat it! POTS is short for Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, a medical condition that drastically alters the lives of millions of people around the world.
I've been battling against (and working with) POTS since I was fourteen--like, on the dot. I literally got sick on my birthday. Yeah. Super fun. But some pretty amazing stuff has come from it, so I can't complain too much.
Do you know that song "I Love to Laugh" from Mary Poppins? No? Oh. Well then. There goes that analogy. Suffice it to say I learned very early on that laughing is more fun than crying (not to mention it takes way less energy).
