Intro - scared
I have a congenital heart defect and I knew a long time ago that it would probably lead to needing a pacemaker at some point. I have always had this insane irrational fear and I don't even know what it is I am so afraid of. Well I am going to have to figure it out and how to cope with it soon so I was looking at information online and found this forum. I probably will just read mostly. were you scared? what were you scared of? what was the surgery like - i heard you are just sedated ??? no way i will totally freak out I cant do that. Anything you want to tell me will help.

Born to be Wired is your theme song.
I had a pacemaker when I was 11. I never once thought I wasn't a 'normal kid' nor was I ever treated differently because of it. I could do everything all my friends were doing; I just happened to have a battery attached to my heart to help it work.
