Hi All,

I would like to introdue myself to the forum members. I live and work in a town called Drogheda, outside of Dublin in Ireland. I'm a 48 year old male and I had a tripple bypass in April 2007. I also have diabeties, sleep apeona and suspected Kawaski decease. I have more deceases than the dukes of Hazzard have cars tongue

I take a daily dose of drugs everyday to keep me going. I will be taking insulin for the diabetes and it will be five injection per day to control my blood sugar levels. I use a sleepap machine at night to get some much need sleep. I have been in and out of hospital with pains in my chest, I suffer from unstable angina, even after the operation. I try and stay away from the hospital as much as possible, but my GP keeps sending me in.

So it's looks like a good place to see if anyone else suffers from my particular form of heart decease.

So hello from Ireland

  My, I have been spinning with all that has happened these last two weeks.  I'm Featherme - more than a feather's touch can be painful - so handle with care! 
 
  I have been disabled for six years, was an elementary school teacher for 27 years, am a mother of four, ages 36, 34, 32, and 29, and have five grandchildren ages 18, 10, 5, 4 and six months - I must say , a young grandmother for a  late starter! I've been married for 38 years.
 
  I love to crochet, garden, write, and thoroughly enjoy my precious Charlie, an orange Persian who is an absolute nutty rescue cat given to me by a friend.
 
  I spend a lot of time on the computer looking up myriad neurological ailments and heart related articles.  I have the tenacity to be an advocate for myself and like to help and encourage others.
 
  Being disabled has given me the freedom to live without a daily schedule so I enjoy a variety of things and am never bored.
 
  I belong to a Christian fellowship group that is small, loving, accepting, and we all have disabilities of some kind so besides Jesus we have being disabled as our cement, the glue that binds us together.  We are all a bit "weird" but that's what makes us a family that delights in one another.
 
  I learn most of my best information from those who have experienced whatever the topic is dealing with.  It's a very important job to share as doctors have one kind of knowledge which we need, but we also need medical information from those not in the profession so we can help them, doctors,  to help us and so we can help make them better doctors.
 
  I'm a bit chatty this morning.  Have a great day.
 
  Featherme
