“Although I’ve often likened EDS/POTS to feeling as if one were both poisoned and electrocuted simultaneously, most unaffected people are unable to relate to the sense of urgency experienced by patients.

Brings tears to my eyes everytime I read it.
This brings tears to my eyes too. It is so “right on”. We could never explain it to anyone that hasn’t experienced it. I one time tried to explain it to a friend that was addicted to heavy drugs for years and she said it sort of sounded like one of her withdrawal episodes when she felt like ending it all because it was so terrible.
