How I think
I thought I'd post about a recent experience that illustrates just how living with heart issues, including having a pacemaker since January, has affected the way I think--maybe some will get a chuckle. Maybe some day I won't be so dumb!
This past weekend I did not feel my best. I was fatigued, my body ached, I had digestion issues & therefore no appetite, I barely left my bed (except for frequent bathroom trips!) The whole time, I'm trying to figure out the problem: I had felt a-fib on Friday night--maybe it was worse than normal & caused some kind of reaction? I had done quite a lot of bending & lifting, mainly while washing our 60+ pound dog--maybe I pulled something or broke something in the pm?
Finally, in a moment of clarity, I realized that not everything I feel is related to my heart. I told my husband, in a somewhat incredulous tone, "You know, I think I might just have a stomach bug!" Yep.
