my dream job & making a decent wage but during the lockdowns work stayed open with no remote work (for me at least). I had to cut my hours to 3-7hrs a week. I'm now searching for remote work since I can't do anything else but it's hard to find part-time remote work.
In the beginning of 2020 my primary took over my pain management and now my pain is a bit more manageable. My POTS came back with a vengeance so I've been dealing with that ever since. I'm pretty much housebound, leaving the house once a week at most. I was working

I have other medical conditions too: Raynaud's, Hyperthyroidism (Grave's Disease), ADHD, OCD, & was just diagnosed w/ interstitial cystitis on Feb 24th (which is super severe rn). I'm working to get them all manageable but it's very expensive & hard to deal with when ill.

My name is Kelsey. I'm 24 & live in California. I'm mainly on Twitter for #NEISvoid, disability, mental health, Jewish & queer stuff. I developed POTS in 2018 after having recurring lung infections. Immediately after, found out I had severe Pectus Excavatum

No one owes you a list of their diagnoses
