    Default A difficult confession



    Hello, as many of you know my name is Dora and I live in Romania. My biggest passion is astronomy, I just love stars!

    You might also know that I am "marked" because I have on my abdomen the three stars in the big dipper, Alkaid, Mizar and Alcor, Alioth so stars are with me since I was born (I`ll show them some other time)

    I chose to tell you now because I am out of the woods and safe, for now...

    What you guys don`t know is that 3 and a half years ago I was diagnosed with a disease, a heart problem. My heart was and is beating alot faster than it should causing alot of problems.

    The deal is that last year it got really bad and I was risking to join my beloved stars by the end of this year because I stopped responding to treatement.

    Later this year things improved considerably. I was getting better and better and I should finish with my medication by the end of this year.
    Whan I joined this forum I was sure I was a gonner and got used to the idea. I was sure I would join the sparkly dots in the sky....

    My heart is still beating faster than it should, but it`s fine now because all the other complications eventually got "uncomplicated" I am doomed to have a fast beating heart all my life, but now at least I`ll have a long and healthy life

    I am safe for now.

    Dearest Dora, You never cease to amaze. In my part of the world what you term a confession is called "Sharing". And, for you to share as you have only endears you to all of us, more and more.

    It greatly relieves me to know all is well for now. It would relieve me even more to know that you will share with us should the condition not remain as it is. There is a lot of prayer power on this forum. Not namin' names, , but if you let us, you will honor us by doing so.

    Be well, be happy and clear skies!

    Dear friends, your beloved Tiyda cheated death!
    I am glad to hear you're getting well.

    About 10 years ago I too was diagnosed with some heart trouble.
    Nothing extreamly serious but enough to keep me from diving.
    I have been a construction diver since I was nineteen and that was all I knew.
    I thought my life would change, my income would no longer be good.
    I figured I could no longer do what I knew and loved.
    Well, 10 years later I am the owner of one of the best Commercial Diving Companies in the Gulf of Mexico. I no longer have to worry about money and I get to share my knowledge to a new generation of "copper coller" workers.

    Dora,

    When life gives us lemons we make lemonaid.
    Take Care

    Hi Tiyda, glad to hear you are ok! I am not sure what exactly you have but you may have re-entrant currents in your heart which for some women happens quite often, and mostly goes away on its own (some people do surgery to laser / burn out the faulty circuit) but make sure you keep visiting the doctors! Also cut down on caffeine and tea! wish you all the best and keep healthy!

    Dearest Dora, we are all related. For you to share your story with us brings us even closer and gives us a feeling not unlike that of family. I am so happy that your condition has improved, and I believe it will continue to improve, for you are one who carries the spirit of the heavens in your heart, that love of life, that understanding of what it all means, a communion with the One, the Great Mystery. There must be an undiscovered star out there somewhere that deserves your name.

    When the stars shine again in my sky, and my Native American side dances in communion with Great One, I will pray for your well-being and happiness always. May your spirit fly high with the eagle along the paths of the stars that know you so well.

    Bless you, Dora.
