Group Description

Mvps-d_oi_nova (Most Valuable Persons with Dysautonomia & OI of Northern VA) is presently an announcemnet-only e-mail list for people with the Orthostatic Intolerance symptoms associated with Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome (MVPS)/Dysautonomia, CFS/ME, POTS, NMH, PTSD and unexplained dehydration. Symptoms include feeling too hot or too cold or both, sweat irregularities, super sensitivities, insomnia, worsening w/ being upright and still (prolonged sitting or standing).

The group, formerly The Northern VA MVPS/D and OI Support Group, has been meeting by teleconference since 2008. Starting Oct 2015 calls are the 2nd Wednesday of the month, 3-4 pm, using a framework of

"The Art of Healing Dysautonomia with Gratitude and Friends.”

Group members are peers with varying degrees of dysautonomia, exacerbation of symptoms with added stress, of experience in co-healing and gratitude. We discuss how to identify and reduce symptoms, improve attitude & coping, and be grateful for all the testing, treatments, and life we've endured.

We emphasize gratitude's friends of acceptance, non-judgment, and patience as part of the process and our processing for reclaimed wholeness. Talking through our attempts at healing with understanding friends, our co-healing buddies, can help us understand more and feel better faster.

Mvps-d_oi_nova welcomes long distance members as well as those in Northern Virginia. Feel free to pay attention to what you like, ignore or delete what doesn't apply or please.

Currently only moderators can post, minimizing the added overwhelm from email. Our messages include conference call reminders, media alerts, meeting summaries, articles, essays, etc. Members are welcome to send in items they feel might be appropriate to share with others.

Note: this group overlaps CFSupport ( www.cfsnova.com &
groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/CFSupport/info) and Elly's Gratitude Group Dish (groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/EGGdish/info).
