Hello, I had my 1st MI in 2013 and subsequent 3 stents placed. Only weeks later some internal bleeding caused a blood clot to block a stent and cause my 2nd MI! July 2017 MI #3 and CABG X3. October 2017, MI #4!!!!! After part of the BRAND NEW by-pass failed... I have not coped well mentally, emotionally, let alone physically... Depression, fatigue and personal isolation are only a few of my issues. In March 2018 I FINALLY started Cardio Re-hab (delayed by insurance).
I was starting to feel a bit better. So, I have a May 30, 2018 Ablation procedure scheduled and had a CAT scan. Low and behold, my "luck" continues. They find a (new) Aortic Anyeurism! This is on top of my A-Fib & Flutter that exists. I am at my wits end. Tired of all of the heart related issues. I am only 56 yrs. old and have all these issues. My whole world is upside down due to my heart problems. I am single and have only my 2 daughters in my life. Burdening them with all of the ensuing issues is not a very viable option. I am in talk therapy, but the sessions are too short a minimally effective. I need support, advice and possible friendships with those unfortunate enough to relate to my issues. I am in Syracuse, NY and hope to find support in the area. I will accept help from anyone though. I will "thank" any and all who take the time to read my brief missive of woe. Hope to hear from someone soon!
