I’ll never forget the moment I gave up.
It had been five years of doctor’s appointments, testing, prescriptions and trips to the ER. It was after one of these visits that my husband looked at me and said, “Babe; maybe its time to wait and see what happens. I mean, you’ve done all you can and nobody has found anything wrong with your heart”.
I broke down in tears. With this statement, my husband, my biggest ally, gave up. What else was I to do but do the same.
To say that I was depressed was an understatement. Maybe the doctors I had seen had been right all the time. Maybe all I needed was to cut back on stress and take a chill pill now and then. Maybe it was all in my head.
That’s when a dear friend of mine set me straight. She said, “You can’t give up! It’s your heart. You have no choice but to continue your search for answers”.
She was right.
I had no choice but to continue until I found the answers. Neither do you.
You Are Not Alone
It sometimes boggles my mind to think of the number of women that must be in the same position. Well, as one of them, let me be the first to say you are not alone.
There is strength in numbers. Especially when those numbers are bolstered by experience and encouragement. It entirely possible that, once you share your experience and have read the experiences of others, that your determination will be renewed.
It must be. Like my dear friend once told me, it’s your heart. You have no choice but to continue your search for answers.
What have you done in your search for answers?
