    Intetesting blog. Thanks. She sounds exceptionally functional for a potsy.

    I saw myself throughout her writings. I never thought about how hard my heart is working when I'm upright. I just attributed my weakness
    or fatigue to hypoperfusion. Fwiw tho, unless I have to, I don't stand in one place and provoke my hr to get to my pots rate.
    If I do sitting or laying down is typically a requirement.

    As far as I could tell, she hadn't uppdated this since 2010 and doesn't know about the possible benefits of changing her diet.

    Most of the people I met on dinet knew about diet tho last year. :)
