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...

This sounds rather easy, unless you are working with the medical industry,  Whether intentionally or not, the medical industry has gone out of their way to de-personalize every aspect of what is the most personal aspect of our lives.
So caught up with the business of generating income, they have managed to reduce health care to the most economical risk free way of creating large profit margins.  Specific patient input, feeling, life style, economic resources or final wishes are no longer a part of the general health care equation. 

They force me to regularly stand outside my story and hustle for my worthiness, and there are times that I am just so tired.
