Have you ever been stuck on a heart monitor for 48 hours and tried to go on with your day as if it wasn’t there? No? Just me?
This past weekend I was on a heart monitor-“Holter Monitor” to be exact.
It freaking sucked.
I guess you’re wondering why I was on this monitor.
Here’s your why; Lyme Disease affects every organ it can, until it just sucks you dry.
For instance, I was in the hospital this past Thursday because my lungs decided to stop working…thanks Lyme.
Of course, I don’t let this sucky disease stop me, But sometimes I don’t have control over it.
It happens, my Lyme spread to my heart and it needs help, what else can I say?
After having a few sets of cold hands touching me, I was all hooked up!
Now this was visible, cold, and annoying.
Oh-you know I rocked it though.
Sleeping with this freaking Heart Monitor was awful and painful. I had to sleep on my back and TRY not to move.
All they told me was to go on with my daily activities, as if it wasn’t there.
So I did! Kind of.
I went on a walk! Last time I went on a walk, I fainted…so I brought my little brother along with me for safety reasons (also he sings with me when we go on walks)
After two days of this baby attached to my hip -literally. I got to take it off! It also just so happened to be de-access day…so all my needles and wires got to come off!
Hopefully this heart monitor extravaganza will tell us why my heart has decided to be so cranky.
