As long as they never say "you're going to have a mitral/aortic vavle prolapse and tear," because then I'm FUCKED!
I am just greatful that we caught what it is when we did. Sure, the prognosis probably be "you're body will continue to get worse unless you strengthen, go to physio and work with a therapist," not to mention the surgery. I am promnising myself that I will NOT let a congenital disease stop me from acheiving in life and enjoying myself. I still have my brain, which, independent of my body works just fine on its own.
What I am trying to articulate here, is the importance of being checked early or mid-stride during a suspected onset of any condition, phsyical ache or pain. I didnt find out until nearly 29, but THANK THE GODS I DIDN'T FIND OUT WHEN I AM NEARLY 39! It's highly unlikely that you will meet anyone with a completely clean bill of health, and seeing as we are finding more and more out about genetics, pathology and biology every day-I urge ALL OF YOU WHO READ THIS TO CONSIDER YOUR CURRENT STAGE OF HEALTH!! I am not advocating you go and spend money on a corrupt doctor in a corrupt system, I am encouraging you to do research like I did, through the web, having my dietician/message therapist make the calls, calling doctors and through the library orr whatever way works for you
PS: I am also extremely greatful for those who have supported me through learning of this news and those who have helped me when I'm in and can't get around. Natalie, my father, Aunt Ellen, Rich and Michelle, all my friends from childhood on facebook, all my friends here.-Miss C and Olive, etc I could NOT get through life in general without all of the aforementioned.
