"Within a Blink of an Eye"

Posted on January 16 2017

At the end of July 2015 my sister came home from working a night shift at Kingston Hospital as a RN. Ever since my sister and I were little she would always talk about becoming a nurse, it was a dream that she always had and a dream that she lived.

That morning that she came come home, everything changed. My sister had aches and pains in her legs and arms, to the point where she was struggling to take a shower that day. The pain was indescribable. I saw my sister struggle to walk up stairs, walk at a fast pace, carry groceries, go on adventures and do simple day-to-day things. The pain that she experienced got so bad and not tolerable that she eventually had to stop working. We went from doctor to doctor and no one could figure out what was causing this terrible pain that she had that literally turned her world upside down.

It came to a point where the doctors thought she was making it up, but she wasn't. Fast forward to the summer of 2016, my sister was diagnosed with POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome). Even though we found out what my sister has, there is no cure for POTS (not yet at least).

Everyday is a struggle to find her grove, we never know if it's going to be a good day, or a bad day. But, my sister is a fighter, she never gives up and she isn't letting this invisible battle (to others) hold her back.

Even though she struggles, everyday she takes one step closer to getting her dreams back, getting her life back.
