A Happy Ambulance Ending

Usually an ambulance call doesn’t qualify as making my day particularly surprising. But today was different.

Today included an ambulance call. And FIVE bags of IV fluid.

I must’ve really looked like shit too, because the paramedics rushed the first two bags of fluid through by squeezing the bags manually — I suppose my repeatedly passing out three times in front of them, helped inspire said manual squeezing of IV bags.

Anyway, the really exciting thing was that they said they watched the video on POTS that I sent them, and it really helped them understand it more. They also said they had sent it through to several other ambulance stations and the head of Ambulance NSW, and they had said they would probably send the video out to most of the NSW stations.

They asked more questions and said they wanted to learn more.

I felt awesome about this.

Watched my negative become a positive.

Going to email the POTS video to my GP next.

Anyway, I’m posting it again, in case it helps anyone recognise the condition in themselves or in someone else.

Thank You

To everyone who helped me spread the word of my new online shop, I have to tell you how amazing you all are. I was amazed by the chain of events that took place after I posted about the shop. There were blog posts, tweets, retweets, links and Facebook statuses that spread around the internet, helping my plight to get to more ballet classes.

I was totally overwhelmed (and fairly teary) by the generosity. It all happened just a couple of days before I went to Sydney so I didn’t have time to write a thank you post before. So I’m writing it now. I read every one of your messages and every one of them brought love to my heart.

Seeing other people proudly support me, also helped me to feel more proud of what I am doing. I felt my confidence being boosted, which is amazingly timely as you will see in my Sydney Part Two post.

Thank you! I feel incredibly blessed and honoured to know such beautiful people. And I hope that I can repay you all some way, sometime.

For all of you…


Much love.
