    Don't do sugar either, but tons of stevia. Thx. for posting the Electro-Mix. Will look for it. I'm glad your daughter is doing better on Florinef. I'm wondering about the immune thing as I'm feeling more viral/exhausted/sick since starting the florinef tho... maybe less fainty. I'll take the fainting stuff over feeling like I have cancer. Wish there was something else.

    Thanks thanks thanks Erist. Did you say you are NOT taking the florinef? Sorry, my brain fog is so bad I get so confused reading all of these things. Just the thermotabs work? Cuz I'd like to quit the florinef as I don't think it's helping/may be making things worse. Wasn't finding a lot of relief from salt/water all day and the going to the bathroom was driving me nuts. I'll look intot he thermotabs. Thx. for posting Cheney stuff/tracking apps.

    I am not using Florinef, no. My POTS is about 60-70% better with just the salt/potassium/water + raised bed + frequent recumbent exercise. It is still quite bad (as you can see) on days where I am very fatigued, or when I eat something I seem to be a bit allergic to, etc. If salt+water isn't helping, not sure the thermotabs will, but they are pretty cheap, worth a try.
