UK Potsies first anniversary

February 22, 2012

I made contact with Tara and Marcia from the UK support group UK Potsies last year, little did I know then, that I would not only find the much needed support and answers (answers that I so badly sought to help me understand and come to terms with this life changing illness) but to also have joined forces, to help them in their goal to reach out and raise awareness and support for others.

On the 15th of this month, we celebrated the one year anniversary of the UK Potsies. What started as an idea between Marcia and Tara soon lead to small group of people, both online and behind the scenes, pushing to reach out and help others, UK Potsies is a campaign and organisation dedicated to raising Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome awareness in the UK.

The website, Facebook and youtube channel have all grown so much in the last year and I am overwhelmed at the Pots community we have built up in such a short space of time. We have big plans for the coming year all of which are very exciting prospects. But when all is said and done, I simply feel very proud to find myself apart of it. Turning such a negative thing into something so positive and finding and making great friendships along the way, has helped me immensely!
