The Drs: P.O.T.S. An Invisible Illness + What Is Endometriosis?

The Doctors: Suffering From An Invisible Illness

The Doctors introduced a woman who shared that she was walking out to her car one morning when she found an envelope on her windshield. Written on the envelope, in big letters, was the word “faker.” She felt defeated and frustrated, because for years she dealt with teachers, friends, and family no believing her condition. She said it was a true slap in the face because eight years ago she was diagnosed with P.O.T.S. or postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. She shared that she’s actually passed out while walking down the road, hitting her head on the curb. She’s tired of being judged based on what people see, because she’s suffering from an invisible illness.
