Life. We’re entitled to life…right? So, why is it that we take something so amazing for granted every single day. Life isn’t something we’re entitled to, life is precious and we’ve been given the luxury to experience everything it has to offer. The old cliche saying, “Everything happens for a reason” really holds true. I’ve never been fond of cliches until I stopped being so naive and looked deeper into them. Which, I might add wasn’t until recently, very recent. We control our reactions to every action, that’s the luxury life offers us.
Congestive heart failure. Dilated Cardiomyopathy. Ventricular Tachycardia. Non sustained ventricular tachycardia. Pre ventricular contraction. Bradycardia. Tachycardia. ICD, pacemaker, defibrillator. Life changing. Deadly. Surgery, multiple painful surgeries. Heart transplant. Those are just some of the terms that have been thrown my way, when I say some there’s still a long list. More like what the hell and I’m sure y’all have the wrong girl. I mean misdiagnosis’s happen all the time. Right? Or so I thought, especially considering 5 other cardiologist cleared me.
Well, a misdiagnosis wasn’t what was in store for me. June 2016, I was too naive to realize just how much my life would change or how quickly time would pass by me with such a change. That change might be an internal change, but that mindset though; it doesn’t have to change. That mindset, controls more than anyone could ever fathom. The last 2.5 years has shown me that a positive mindset can help to preserve through obstacles that no young adult should experience.
