I don’t have any memory before or after my sudden heart attack MI am/ was a healthy 58y/o woman. All I remember was that I was going to a restaurant ( abt 5 miles from my house )2 meet a friend. I remember getting in my car, driving for a few minutes ( thru a very windy road)& my memory stops! All I know is what is was told.. apparently I arrived @ the restaurant @ the same time as my friend. Parked car, went into restaurant, ordered my green tea, had a conversation( abt.10 min.) started to sweat, put my head down& collapsed..MI! ambulance was called/ tried to resuscitate me(cpr/shocked 3 times- jump started but my heart wouldn’t stay beating.. er put in stent@widowmaker then medically induced coma 3 days. I was kept 2 weeks! My blood pressure was so low they wouldn’t release me! I am 5’1- weight 100 lbs.
I was on 16 drugs! Which of course, lowers my blood pressure - no doctor figured that out😡I was in& out of the hospital for a year (5 heartcaths) stent closes new stent, angina( nobody explained what that was) colitis..the left chamber of my heart is dead- frontal lobe damage( exextive function etc.) .my MI was 1/22/2015.. now 3yrs later I still have no memory of what happened,coma waking up - NOTHING! Most friends don’t want to give me too many details because it was so hard for them to talk abt. I want desperately to remember something/ anything! Everyone asks me what was the first thing I remember dying/ waking.. i remember NOTHING! Did I have an out of body experience? Did I see the other side? I want to remember what death is... my memory is horrible still!i have lost friends because I say inappropriate things ( not horrible)& nobody including me;understands what is happening. And with everything they have dealt with- I can’t explain to them what happened to my brain! I don’t recall conversations- can become repeatitive and making bad decisions! I want my memories back; will my brain ever recall this event? So frustrating.. nobody understands what’s happening nor do I.. since I lost 1/2 my heart I am scared all the time. I’m afraid I’m losing my mind as I feel like Its slipping away more everyday -
