Today, for Dysautonomia Awareness Month, I'm honoured to have Sophie Ploeg sharing her experience of living with Dysautonomia through a sketch. It was Sophie's painting The Blue Dress, which was the inspiration for the theme for this month. I can relate to both Sophie's description of the in between feeling of pre-syncope and her sketch with one ptosed eye during an episode. I'm sure many others will too.
As you know I have *POTS and for the sketch I thought of how I feel during an episode. I suffer from pre-syncope: my body shuts down and is about to pass out, except I don't pass out and hang in between conscious and unconscious. With all the fun symptoms that come with that.
*(POTS: Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome)

Remember to head on over here to donate to my Clicking My Heels For Dysautonomia, raising money for the Greg Page Fund for Orthostatic Intolerance and Dysautonomia research, at The Baker IDI. Thanks to the generosity of many we've already raised over $2,600, keep donating and hopefully we can reach $10,000.
