POTS Recovery given "Sugardoll Blogger Award"

I would like to thank the academy, I mean, the Fabulous Sugar Doll Blogger Lauren, from the bottom of my heart for this award. I would like to thank Jenny and Michael and Scott. And Rusty Hoe for your inspiration and I would also like to thank the talented people at Google for making my Blog possible. (sniff)

I wouldn't be blogging, let alone accepting this award, if it wasn't for two women; my mother, without her incredible job of listening to my complaints and my sister and her reminders to get real.(sob, more tears)

...and of course I must thank my golden retriever "Jack" whose humor, wit and slobbery kisses I just couldn't live without. Thank you (leaving stage)Thank you everybody!

OK in accepting this award I also agree to list 10 things about me:

  1. I had a secret crush on William Shatner when I was 12
  2. I dislike smoked oysters BIGTIME!
  3. My shoe size is 38 (7 1/2 cdn)
  4. I put highlights in my hair
  5. I get parking tickets more frequently than the average adult
  6. I always wanted to be an artist that composes and performs yoga mood music
  7. I once purchased a CD called "Greatest Hits of the 70s" from an infomercial ad at 4am
  8. I love sherbet fountains
  9. My motorcycle is a bright red Harley Davidson Deuce
  10. I find ant hills fascinating


  1. Are you able to stand upright still? I know I have read that a lot of people with POTs have a harder time standing still than they do walking?

    Aside from exercise are you able to do things like going to the mall and walking? Do you have limits in how much you can be upright and walking/standing?

  2. AT least the William Shatner crush was when you were 12. If it was more recently I might have been scared. Please tell me you don't have one his spoken word albums. LOL

  3. Well Rusty, I actually DID have a copy of William (sigh) doing Shakespeare.

    To listen to Bill read shakespeare click here:

    Lucy - Yes, I am able to stand upright and yes it is easier to move around than to stand. If I stand to long my blood pressure crashes and I am on the floor.

    I can now comfortably go shopping without the danger of falling over. Prior to starting Dr. Levine's program I would clutch on to my shopping cart with a death grip so I wouldn't fall into a big stack of stewed tomatoes.

    My limits depend on how I am feeling on a particular day. Hormones still play a big role in increasing the severity of symptoms. I hope that helps Lucy....How are YOU??

  4. Hormones are killer. As I was putting my schedule together I decided to wait till my cycle is through so I won't start till next week
