Problems of The Heart

Back in 2006 I was diagnosed to have a mild mitral valve prolapse. I went into depression, had panic attacks.  I was a regular at my cardiologist's clinic even waiting for my turn to see her at midnight.  In my hometown, there were only 2 cardio practitioners so you can just imagine the patients not counting those who came from nearby provinces.  So, I have a lot to be thankful for.  God has helped me get out of that depression and has helped me live with my condition.

Fast forward to 2013, my latest 2d echo does not show the mvp which I really am thankful again to God but there is something else.  I'll have to do diligent exercise now, refrain from pork and all those unhealthy food and habits, try to sleep more, chose fruits and vegetables. Yes, i feel that I am old.  And the older i get, the more that i have been praying to God.  Not the traditional going to church every sunday, but more on meditating on God's greatness, power and love. 

So i still worry at times but i try to not let it consume me.  Maybe my heart's anatomy is like that and perhaps the junk that my body has been taking this past year has made my heart a little bit out of health.  I pray to God, it can still be reversed with a lifestyle change.  I really hope to see all my children finished school, find a way to make a living for themselves, find life partners , have children of their own.  All that and remain healthy and strong for myself, my husband, my children.  My prayer.
