Today I went into work for the first time in 3 months and I feel bloody proud of myself.
Ok, it's not exactly a sponsored ultramarathon or hiking challenge, but for me it's a massive milestone in my recovery. I know it's one I am very privileged to make.
THANK YOU for everyone who has supported me on here in the last couple of months.
I am 29 and had a (still unexplained) cardiac arrest out of the blue in early April this year. After a long stay in hospital, I had an ICD put in just in time to catch my second cardiac arrest in May.
My brain and my heart have done a lot of healing with the suppprt of countless medical professionals, friends and family. It's been scary, incredibly frustrating and depressing at times. I am very thankful that I also found this forum for support.
There are certainly still lots of challenges ahead, including an operation next week, but for now I want to mark a milestone that may seem small, but is massively important to my reclaiming of me.
