View Full Version : Lupus and now POTs syndrome

Hey All

I've been diagnosed with lupus for almost 10 years now. 4 years ago they diagnosed me with gastroparesis. Pretty much all my illnesses are flaring. My doctor has recommended to the mayo clinic for possible pots syndrome. My blood pressure becomes extremely low and my heart rate is through the roof. I've had dilated pupils since I can remember. I am 28 years old and single. I've been having a difficult time dating and I have found that not talking about my illnesses does not scare guys away. Has anyone been in the same boat as me. Being single and wanting to find a good guy while being sick. Any suggestions? This illness affects more than just my physical health, but guys don't handle it well when they hear I'm sick. It's hard enough fighting these illnesses, but also being alone (aside from my dogs). Thank you all in advance. Hope you all are having a good new year with less pain!
