sorry to hear this, barbara - but that would sure explain a lot of the shortness of breath, etc., that you've been having this summer; what has your doctor said about how you're going to deal with it?

Thank you all.

I go see my family doctor today. I will ask him how I will deal with it. I suppose I will deal with it with the love and support from my freinds.

Im very sorry to hear that barbara. do you like your dr? do you think you should get a second opinion? I Just want you to be comfortable
with him or her...
My younger neighbor was diagnosed with that a few years back
and he seems to be doing fine.
Please get all the info you need about it so you can take care
of yourself properly.
Let us know how your doing.

Very Happy Thank you all.

I had the stress test and sonogram of my heart this past Tuesday. My doc said it could be anxiety instead of my heart but we don't know yet. Bobby took me to the hospital for all those tests. We were there for almost 4 hours and he was so patient. I feel so bad for being nasty to him last week. Bobby has been the rock that I've leaned on lately. He must really like me to still stand by me after I told him hurtful things last week.

Very Happy Hi all,

My doc called me today and he said my heart is not that bad. He thinks it is anxiety causing me to feel the way I do. I know that ever since my ex neighbor took me to court in June and knowing I've got to go back has me on edge.

that's perfectly understandable, barbara - maybe you can approach the anxiety the way you approached quitting; do what you can to be prepared for what's coming, but don't try to fight your court case before you get to court: the only time you can act on that is when you're in court, so what's the point of worrying about it now?

(i know: easier said than done, but you might want to ask yourself, when you notice yourself feeling anxiety about the court date: "is there anything i can do about this right this minute?" if the answer is "yes", do whatever that thing is. if the answer is "no", accept that, too, let it go, and get on with something you can do that minute. you can't fight tomroow's battles today.)

you'll get through this. Smile
