life, love,art. heart failure and assorted ramblings

Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....
I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this disease, open heart surgery that was less than successful and more recently an S-ICD (internal cardiac defibrillator) implanted in my chest that will hopefully restore my heart beat in case of sudden cardiac death. I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to learn how to live a full life with heart failure, to honor my creativity, and to explore all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say
"Don't talk like that!"


Music is loading really slow lately...sorry...

Strong Women

Now…let me clarify this….because quite frankly this sounds like a sanctimonious, holier than thou bitch!  But really it is not.  Strong women come in all different kinds.  What they do have in common is that they “stand and deal”.  Although I believe I have always been a strong woman, I was strong for all of the wrong reasons, I was strong because it has been what other people in my life expected of me.  I am not certain I ever did it because it was what I chose to do. 
The difference is now I choose.
I choose to be strong, I am not really good at it yet….I have a lot to learn but..
I am learning to love me.
