I just wanted to give all those who've just had a heart attack and are still reeling from everything that's happened to them a little uplift.
I had a heart attack back in February, completely out of the blue and unexpected. I was pretty mad about it as I love my life and wanted to keep it that way. Since it happened I've had an angiogram, MRI, chats with my rehabilitation nurse and chats with my GP. I've yet to have a follow up talk with my consultant, that appointment seems to keep getting postponed but I don't feel too worried by it.
I wanted to reassure all those who've read posts on here from people following their attack and then don't hear what happened to them, the posts stop and everything goes silent. Back in February I felt incredibly down and I assumed the worst. I thought that people stopped posting here because, well, they couldn't. When actually it's just as likely, in fact more likely, that like me, they've just got better.
Although I'm not 100% and although I still don't know the full story of what has happened to me (most likely a 'plaque event') I feel relatively normal again.... me, just with more meds.
So please don't panic, especially as stress is good for no one and keep positive. Not everyone's story is the same, not everyone gets 100% better, but many here do. Give yourself time to rest, sleep lots, don't read anything on the internet (fat chance, we're all experts) and know that the reason those who once did write posts on here and don't any longer is most probably because they're just getting on with life.
