Doing things different today

Yesterday I stayed sedated. My pic line then the Cath. Today I'm staying away from my sedation of Valium to see how my new med is working. The doc put me on tikosyn. I will be getting my fourth dose shortly. As of right now I'm not feeling well. I'm a little dizzy, have a headache and a bit of chest discomfort. I am losing my energy like I have been having. So I hope that my doc doesn't let me get more shocks before the let me have that other surgery. I beg for no more shocks.

I have met a few ICD patients over the years and they all feel the same about avoiding shocks but it does keep you alive.

This is very true. But the mind is only going to tolerate so much before it stops.

Really feel for you, it must be dreadful to get those shocks and it's certainly not nice to feel as poorly as you describe! Fingers crossed you won't get anymore and wishing you well again.

Big healing hug.

I have no idea how you are feeling so hesitate to say anything. At least for now accept that you dislike how you are feeling and try to let it drift past you. Maybe just attempt to see a memory of happier times to offset the fear of further shocks. Sending healing thoughts Wendyb

I'm not hesitant to talk about anything. Everyone here has really cheered me up and I have been in every day to reply to nearly everyone. I have had so many questions and kind words that I have replied to I can't keep up with it all. I do try to post once a day. If I had I missed something from you I apologize deeply. I will try to do a better job keeping in touch with everyone.
