Thank you for your support

Hello all - I'm sending a simple message to thank you all for contributing to this site.  Words can't really adequately express how much help you all are providing.  I have been on your site since early 2018, and can't imagine how I could have adapted to life with a PM without your assistance.  Thank you.

I agree !! This site is a great help to those of us who have unexpectedly been the recipients of a pacemaker. Being able to ask questions and read about a variety of issues related to our new “ devices “ helps so much.... Lots of great people willing to share what they know and have experienced!

Hello Persephone,

It is nice to genuinely care about each other and to learn a lot along the way.  We all have our own personal attributes to offer and together we make a very strong team.

I got my pacemaker in early 2018 and I feel I have come a long way too. I am at last able to have a meaningful conversation with my doctors and to take positive steps to make informed decisions about my future care.  I feel in a much better place now because of the help from members, some of whom have had years of experience living with their pacemakers and their experience is invaluable.

You know you're wired when...

You run like the bionic woman.

It is just over 10 years since a dual lead device was implanted for complete heart block. It has worked perfectly and I have traveled well near two million miles internationally since then.
