what is autonomic dysfunction?a day in the life

Living with autonomic dysfunction is pretty much like living in a fantasy universe for me. I drink magic potions, I see stars and auras.I keep wondering if I am a 👾.or maybe a 👼. Let’s go with that. I like that better.

Life seems to go in slow motion on flare days.


My daily schedule:

  • Get up. Wonder why I did that. ❓
  • Lie in bed for a bit, listening to some 🎶 or watching a movie.
  • Take out my clothes. 👕
  • Climb back into bed, vaguely noticing that everything has gone all blurry and shaky.its kind of like living g in a roller coaster. For hours at a time.😵
  • And then I wonder why I’m nastoaus.😱
  • Get up s l o w l y. Get into clothes while trying  not a fall down. 😜
  • Tick tock.tick tock. Try not to see the ⏰ while i watch.
  • Start getting ready. Same pace as clothes.
  • Stars.Aura. darkness. I am now entering alternative unviserses.👽
  • Get my magic potion ready (salt packets in a gallon of water. Its makeup💄 is the same as D5W.)
  • Go to school. 🏣
  • cold. hot flashes. cold flashes. hot agian.
  • Pretend to understand &listen while the world blurs and twists and turns. Sip my magic potion.♨
  • Eat chips, salty veggies, and in general enough salt to support the industry. Singlehandedly. Try to set a world record for water consumption for day.🚰
  • Go home. Watch more movies &music.try not to fall asleep.😴
  • Sleep. Home tommrow will be better.not that it usually is. But hey there’s always hope.;-)

Its tough living with this undiagnosed illness that baffles my doctors and wrecks havoc on my life. It plays off and exasperates my other illnesses. But I know that as long as I can make jokes about it, I will be OK. Because my illness has stolen so much from me, but it can never take my ☺.
