In matters of the heart, nothing is true except the improbable.
~Madame De Stael

It's Dysautonomia Awareness Month, so I'm celebrating with hearts for Art Thursday. My daughter Ariana was diagnosed with POTS in 2017. A medicine that slows down her heart has been a huge help, in addition to the five liters of electrolytes she drinks daily and compression socks she wears, but she still can't walk long distances and being in the heat is a big no-no. Looking forward to autumn weather when it finally comes!
