3 weeks today, I was suddenly taken ill at home. Within 25 mins of having chest pain
I had a cardiac arrest. I am pleased to say that the paramedic had just arrived and he shocked me sereval times. Tests showed damage to heart, and they believed the small clot was dispersed with the shocks. No surgery needed!
I was in hospital 8 days now at home slowly recovering.... awaiting to start the cardiac
Exercise group mid November and also I have been referred to the counselling service.
I am remaining positive, but at times I am do feel quite anxious. I am 59 years of age, and before my heart attack I was a busy business woman.. think I may need to reconsider my role but hoping that I can make a good recovery.
I say that I am feeling anxious at times, but I am addmenent that this recent experience is not going to make me into a needy person. So therefore since I have returned home from hospital, my husband regularly leaves me at home by myself. When I was taken I’ll originally I was at home by myself, hence why it’s important to me that I try to lead an independent life. On the whole I am not feeling too bad, but feeling breathless at times is a concern but i do wonder is this panic!
