48 hour Heart Monitor. . . No Thanks

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.
