So I just have to express some of my anxieties that are in my life right now. I've been greatly blessed to have wonderful health and no major issues as of yet. My father's side all have diabetes which is a concern that I keep tabs on and my mom has some inherited heart disease called Marphan's which means her heart is enlarged and she is prone to aneurysms which have all been fixed thankfully.
I don't have that disease, but it's coming to my attention I may have cardiac arrhythmia which means my heart doesn't always beat regularly. I'm supposed to have a holter monitor which I will get tomorrow and see what happens from there. I'm a bit scared since I've done some research and while most are solved with medication, in some instances pacemakers are needed. I've almost blacked out after my heart has a major episode which scares me and then it's always scary when you feel your heart trying to "catch up" or skip a beat sometimes.
I'm typically a very shy person, but this blog has allowed me a place to be honest and open with much of what's going on. Thank you for sharing my journey with me in the past while. I'm grateful for my family and friends who I don't know where or who I'd be without. I'll keep you all posted on what happens as I find out.
