Thank you

I just wanted to thank all of the members for allowing me to join this site. It was nice to see that there were others in this world that has the same fears about living with a medical issue that could end your life at any moment. It has been less than a year since the accident.

My dissection was so extensive that getting my heart rate up could be deadly. I am wondering if anyone on this site has ever been told this?
