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!"

When I stay in my head...

“We ignore our feelings by staying up in our head rather than being present in our body.”
I have not learned how to effectively manage my feelings, and find that avoiding them is easier.  I find myself focused in my head rather than my body, more or less unaware of my feelings?
When I stay in my head I am avoiding responsibility for my feelings….ouch!
