Wife, mother to 1 adult son and 1 adult daughter, step-mom to 3 adult daughters, grandmother to a 3 yr old and 1 year old boys, step-grandma to 4 girls and 2 boys with another boy due in Dec. What a brood...lol. My first husband died of CHF at the age of 38. My current husband is a type 1 diabetic on an insulin pump, below the knee amputee his left leg and ESRD and on dialysis.
Up until June of 2010 I was doing ok until I ended up in the hospital with Atrial Fib. My heart rate at the time was 180. I was so scared. I have been living with depression, anxiety, and IBS since May of 1998, when my late husband died. Now the depression and anxiety has gotten worse at times. So bad, I am now in counseling to try and deal with all the issues. My A-Fib makes me very light headed and short of breath.
