A Heart-to-Heart talk

Dear Heart,

I’m on to you.

You may think you’re sly, but we’ve been at this for far too long for me not to notice the SIGNS of AN IMPENDING ATTACK.  I used to be caught off-guard when you would suddenly speed-up without warning and go racing for what seemed like hours (and twice really was), but no more.  I now sense the stress mounting as it builds within my chest.  I may not have the ability to reverse or halt a P.A.T.  (paroxysmal atrial tachycardia) episode once the warning signs are present, but I have learned some tricks of my own to lessen the intensity & duration of one.

I don’t know why you can’t be a little more cooperative…I mean, this isn’t a competition or anything.  AND, we ARE sharing the same body.

Better shape up and quit this nonsense because one day, whether through medicine, jedi training, miraculous healing, or sheer determination, I will put a stop to all your shenanigans.

Then, like Candace from Phineas & Ferb says, your mischief will be “SO BUSTED!”

******************    Respectfully, The Steward (of this body)


Paroxysmal Atrial Tachycardia: Though seldom life-threatening, paroxysmal atrial tachycardia produces annoying symptoms
which can include lightheadedness, chest pain, palpitations, anxiety, sweating, and shortness of breath.
