Religion & Pacemaker
I have waited over a year to post this. I still have not gotten over the event and want some feedback just to ease my mind.
I met a neighbor at our pool last summer. We did not know each other except in that aspect. Our children are of different ages but got along well.
One day, she noticed my scar from my bathing suit and asked me what had happened. I said in a very casual manner I have a pacemaker implanted. She turned dreadfully pale and her face changed immediately. She asked me why I needed this. I said i have a very slow heartrate and this keeps me alive and healthy.
She said "so you would be dead without it" and I replied that was a good possiblilty. She then began praying and through this she told me I should already be dead because the PM was not God's will. I should be dead and my soul has already left my body what is left is a shell not of God.
I tried to reason with her. She then left and since then will not even look at me or any of my family. Apparently my daughter who was 10 at the time got wind of it and cried a lot. I explained to her that this was not true.
Have any of you had the experience? I don't know. To this day somehow I can't let it go.
