Usually an ambulance call doesn’t qualify as making my day particularly surprising. But today was different.
Today included an ambulance call. And FIVE bags of IV fluid.
I must’ve really looked like shit too, because the paramedics rushed the first two bags of fluid through by squeezing the bags manually — I suppose my repeatedly passing out three times in front of them, helped inspire said manual squeezing of IV bags.
Anyway, the really exciting thing was that they said they watched the video on POTS that I sent them, and it really helped them understand it more. They also said they had sent it through to several other ambulance stations and the head of Ambulance NSW, and they had said they would probably send the video out to most of the NSW stations.
They asked more questions and said they wanted to learn more.
I felt awesome about this.
Watched my negative become a positive.
Going to email the POTS video to my GP next.
Anyway, I’m posting it again, in case it helps anyone recognise the condition in themselves or in someone else.
