new to me
allan(41) from edinburgh here.
I would just like to thank all the kind people who responded to my very first letter a few days ago.I am about to be fitted with my first pace maker in under two weeks and just being able to know you are not alone and can talk to people who really understand is brilliant.
I understand so much more about the procedure and what to expect and i would be a liar if i said I wasnt scared but I am armed with a lot more knowledge which can only be a good thing.
It would be very easy to go down the route of why me!
But with over a million people in the world needing pace makers and not able to afford them I am going to try and view this next chapter in my life as all extra and a bonus and be gratefull i have the opportunity to regain some of my lost health .
Anyway thanks for helping prepare me for my journey albeit scary it know seems a little less scary because of this fantastic site
