This is just part of #pot#pots. Do I get sick of drinking Gatorade every day? Absolutely. Do I HATE drinking and drinking and drinking? Yep. But I would rather drink Gatorade, Propel, water, juice, ect and keep my fluids up and my body hydrated than have a repeat of what happened this morning. In case you weren't aware: I was scheduled to go to an Adults With Autism Symposium today and was pumped and excited to meet fellow aspies and Autistic folks and learn new things about social relationships and independent living. BUT yesterday I was sick and have been dealing with a severe manic episode which made me a total scatterbrain and I had maybe one Gatorade and then loaded up on soda. Yeah soda is liquid but I feel like it actually sucks more liquid out of my body than it puts in. - Woke up this morning and turned off my alarm. Felt a little funny but went to stand up to go wake my dad up and bloop fell in the floor in a pile dry heaving and so dizzy the room was visibly spinning. I tried again to get up and made it as far as the couch and had to sit there for a few minutes before I could make it to my parent's room and let my dad know we weren't going. - Because of my stupidity of not drinking enough fluids yesterday I woke up extremely dehydrated (key sign was how thirsty I was and I am never thirsty waking up). I had to miss out on what I bet was an awesome symposium because I didn't take in enough fluids. Later I drank enough that I felt good and made it to Walmart to buy, yep you guessed it, more Gatorade. They even have super sized jugs of Gatorade now that I got two of. - Point is - if you have POTS PLEASE make sure you take in fluids today. You may be sick of drinking, you may be sick of Gatorade or water or whatever you choose to use to stay hydrated. It is so vastly important! - - - - - ❤Tags❤ #chronicallyill #chronicallyillwarrior #chronicillnesswarrior #spoonie #spoons #spoontheory #pots #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #potsie #potssyndrome #anxiety #bipolardisorder
