Well hello girls, it has been a long time since I had a post of my own. It was a very eventful past seven month. Good portion in and out of ICU being told anywhere from, I must have Epilsey to I am a drug addict with deep depression issues (that was only told to my parents!) because no one could have constant chest pains like I said I was having. Good thing that doctor only told that to my parents.
What really got to me was to arrive by ambulance and you have your body spam so bad you can't control your hands and legs from jumping and twitching, blackout while you are talking to them and still there is nothing wrong with you because all the test come back "in range". I started carrying my massive report from Mayo that showed all my testings and diagnosis showing I had Endothelial dysfunction with syndrome X (MVD) and still they tested and treated me as if I had epilepsy. (and I am the stubborn one). This happened over eleven trips. At least the first time they got the heart attack diagnosed. Once they found I had no main artery blockages though, they were confused how that could be right! You have to have blocked arteries according to these doctors and Mayo must be wrong, they have never heard of such a thing being possible. They almost broke my spirit, but I thank God every day for you women on this site. Mary, Annette, Joan and the rest of you, not just for the support and caring, but letting me know I'm not the crazy one and it isn't just in my head.
Well, Joan and Annette I finally got the doctor to give me nitro patches and I can actually do some of the crafts I use to. I can play with my grandsons for more than a few minutes without feeling like I ran a marathon or have an attack, that happened three times. Thank you seems so minor to say to people that gave back my life. Bless you and my love for you is deep. We all have become a rag tag family of sorts. I wish you peaceful nights and days. And again, THANK YOU with all my broken heart!
Hugs and Prayers-
