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 raunchy disease. My words always help me understand that in this life there will be times that are crappy painful and unexpected but tucked in there are the amazingly wonderful, too. That is when I realized the only control I have over any of this is how I chose to experience them! I realized that I could understand, celebrate can survive even better when I could express these feelings with my own words of courage, humor, and grace. I am the Queen of my own life and the choice is mine!

I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to grieve my losses, to laugh long and hard, and to learn how to live a full magnificent life with heart failure.

I am honoring my creativity, and exploring all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say....."Don't talk like that!"

Flow Chart Mentality...Holy Crap!

Twice in the past couple of weeks I have had the unusual experience of  medical people using the phrase “You are on the left (or right) side of the flow chart”.  For you LEFT BRAINERS this may make perfect sense, but those of us with RIGHT BRAIN mentality it is confusing as hell!  When I was told we are working down the RIGHT side of the flow chart, I took it to mean RIGHT, GOOD, CORRECT, APPROPRIATE….then in a conversation with someone else, they mentioned they were working down the LEFT side of the flow chart and this was a great situation….WHAT?  I was confused, looked up a flow chart, and this is what I found….HOLY CRAP!  "What we have here is a failure to communicate"
