thinking back i can remember when you struggled w/cardio issues now, beths.
i understand the air hunger/shortness of breath. i've struggled with this for 4 years; it is manageable (mostly) now; but 'I don't have lyme'
it sounds like you were on some support and who hasn't enjoyed a reprieve and time of basking in some freedom? thankfully your body is working for you and sending out the s.o.s. so you can face the wind and put the fire out again.
i can understand your discouragement. it's okay. its tough esp. when you've had a taste of freedom from it. but, it will come again b/c you've seen it already. this is just a little alert
so that you can identify the weakness and deal with it now.
your heart symptoms are like heth's endocrine ones. she said she can handle most anything but the pain from that (and nausea!) - not!
you are right - you will get there again and we'll be waving at the finish line!!
r u going to call ur doc????
