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!"

The happy prescription!

When so much hurt and pain is consistently swirling around me I have found how easy it is to slip into a pattern that focuses on the chaos and the confusion of depression.  However, I am finding, when I stand back and look at the big picture, I realize how much I do have to be grateful for  a warm home with a comfy bed,  food in my cabinets , happy healthy successful grown children and (grand children).  Gratitude is a marvelous emotion!  It is one of the most amazing and powerful tools to fight depression, that and staying active, keep moving (walking) or anything physical.  This is my magic “happy” prescription, the cost is right and it has worked like a charm so far!
