This is my beginning, my story

This may be a rather long post. I have a lot to say. Please bear with me, and don't click awAy before finishing ;). My story started back in October of last year. I was 30 years old, fit and healthy. I had just arrived home from picking up my 2 older sons from school. I bent over to pick up my 5 month old to feed him and my vision dissapeared.

Welcome Christina. I'm curious, how old were you when you had your AD. I was 31 myself and I know a few others who were around my age, so you are not alone. I look forward to getting to know you and hear your story.

Hi Christina and welcome to the Aortic Dissection Support Group! As for your age and having a dissection, frankly it is a LOT more common in younger people than people seem to think. Whilst primarily and statistically more common in older people more and more cases seem to be younger people - something which is of great concern to all of us. I know we have quite a few younger people on the site so don't be afraid to ask any of US for any support or questions you might have, we are all here to help you and one another!  So, start a blog about your experience, join in the different forums, post a picture, whatever - we would all love to see you posting on the site!
