I was diagnosed with POTS, Dysautonomia, EDS, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome a few years ago. I suffer with chronic bone pain, chronic migraines, low blood pressure, heart rate problems, weak collagen, and more. I’m turning 16 soon and I’ve been suffering since I was around 12. It’s hard to deal with, and it’s a life changing illness even though it’s not life threatening. I can’t walk too much or I’ll hurt more or get very fatigued, and I have to limit what I do to avoid crashing. But I’ve discovered painting, and it helps a lot to distract me from these symptoms. I’ve sold a few of my paintings, and Wild Waters is one that’s for sale right now. I do commissions, and I post my art on my Facebook page, J. Black Art. I’d love to hear from any artists, or anyone suffering with similar illnesses to talk and maybe make a friend. The best way to contact me is through my Facebook. Thank you for taking the time to read this! My ambition is to spread awareness of invisible illnesses like the ones I have, and to get my art out there.
