Show Notes

In retrospect, Leigh's daughter had symptoms since age 4, but her daughter's POTS wasn't diagnosed until she was a teenager. Leigh describes the struggle of the parent - worry, grief, questioning decisions, the helplessness that comes with navigating your child's chronic illness. It's a great episode!
