Entering a Potsie New Year…

If you find yourself feeling lonely right now, as though no one understands, you are not alone.  Your journey is yours to walk, that is true.  But, how you choose to walk the tightrope known as Pots is your choice.  I am not speaking of the physical symptoms you are unable to control.  I would […]

How are You Doing Today?

Talk about a loaded question…”How are you doing?”  Well, let’s see.  How am I really doing?  How do I want to be doing? Or how do we move past this question the quickest?  It’s not you, it’s us.  Yes, I realize that is the best breakup excuse ever.  But genuinely, we mean it.  We don’t […]

The Truth About Pots…

Spoiler Alert….

  Lately, I have been overwhelmed with information.  Whether it be researching POTS or signing 7,452 forms for the kids as they start the new school year.
