The DVLA (Driving and Vehicle Licensing Agency) have had my provisional driving licence for fifteen weeks and I don't think I'm getting it back.
228 days after I stopped the pill, I had my first real period in 10 years, 207 days longer than a usual cycle.
I used to be so absolutely offended if a healthy person told me they were tired.
I, on the other hand, get given a diagnosis for something incurable and say 'okay, that's annoying' and carry on with my day. My plate is absolutely massive.
Both my physical health and mental health took a turn for the worse over the last few months - I'm having more issues than I know where to begin with and I haven't been able to write for a while, which, in turn, affected my mental health too. In terms of physical health, I'm feeling probably the worst I've ever felt in my life and like my poor little body falling to pieces and there's nothing I can do about it.
I'm not disabled, I just do things a little differently, because I have to and that's okay!
Dysautonomia is a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system which causes many symptoms, and which causes difficulties with controlling your heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, and more. This is usually life changing for many people, like me for an example.
