Thank you for sharing Rev. For those members that are not familiar, ASH = asymmetric septal hypertrophy :)
I am so glad you finally made that trip to the ER. You my friend are one of the few that contributed your sx to stress to have them turn out to be cardiac in nature.
Chronic Illness and stress go hand in hand. Stress is a natural part of dealing with a chronic illness. I am glad to see you reach out to a communitry like HealingWell and look for peer support........I am proud of you for taking the first step is finding peers to help you. Sharing your story and problems plus your successes is a good way to stay grounded.
Again for members who may not know an
implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is designed to quickly detect a life-threatening arrhythmia and prevent sudden cardiac death. Nearly 3 million US patients have ICDs and I am glad one of them is you Rev as they are a wonderful thing.
Stick with us and know we care.
