My primary care physician said that I work too hard and might consider disability.
I have had my device for 4 months today. I returned to my job 2 months after implant and ablation. I am working full-time but by Friday I am exhausted. I spend Saturday in bed giving my body the rest it seems to crave. Episodes of PTSD still exist but lessened. Though I am acutely aware of my heart beat. Because my issue appears to be genetic it's not going away, prompting me to dance between "safe activities" and going out in a blaze of glory.
It scares me to think of not working at the usual place of 12+ hours per week, but it is taking a toll. I am entering my 40th year of working and though I know working isn't supposed to define me, it does. The question becomes do I want to spend whatever time typing on a computer in a cubicle farm?
Has anyone else faced this type of decision?
You know you're wired when...
Like the Energizer Bunny, you keep going.
At age 20, I will be getting a pacemaker in few weeks along with an SA node ablation. This opportunity may change a five year prognosis into a normal life span! I look forward to being a little old lady with a wicked cane!
