My name is Rachael, and I am from North Carolina. I love all things outdoors, but my passion is rock climbing. I was diagnosed with POTS in January of 2017, and it affects me every day.
Some of the treatments I am currently using are: beta blockers, salt pills, increased fluids, and exercise.
Since being diagnosed I have been able to:
Go climbing, hiking, biking, kayaking, and travel to Europe. These things don't come without difficulty. I get dizzy, faint, and feel sick a lot of the time while doing these things...but I do them anyways!
I am trying to do all I can to continue living my life and doing the things I love despite the difficulties I am facing.
I also have Celiac Disease, anemia, sleep apnea/UARS, and vitamin deficiencies.
