A Real Broken Heart? It Can Happen!

I have been taking it easy the last couple days. It is hard for me to say that since I am not one to take it easy.  This round of healing has taken everything out of me. Everything!  The healthcare system has failed to act quickly (no surprise).  I have been without professional care for almost two months.  Every minute and every second of the time my heart is pounding.  My heart wants to jump out of my body.  I can’t breathe, I stop breathing, I feel pain in my chest.  It is amazing how much our body takes a hit when we suffer mentally. 

When I went through betrayal 3 years ago, I suffered from a lot of physical ailments.  The worse was my stomach.  I lost 50 pounds, it was hard to eat a lot and my choices in food that settled well were limited.  I had to take medicine for it for a year and a half.  This time around I am getting the stomach problem again. I am losing a lot of weight, I can tell from my clothes.  I am terrified to weigh myself. For right now weight loss is just more evidence of how much I have been beat.  But to top it off I am getting the Broken Heart Symptoms.  I always thought that was just a saying until I had an actual broken heart.  It hurts! It is real and can cause permanent damage. Please pay attention to your body when you go through mental problems.  The below link is a good article on a broken heart. 

I am thankful I mustered enough energy to post something today.

    I feel ya & sorry you feel this much pain. I too lost 35 lbs 5 years ago when it first happened. I weighed 109 lbs & started losing my hair & ended up with nerve damage in my foot. It really does take a toll, I’ve never felt such pain in my heart. It’s a muscle & can become damaged when overexerted. This round I lost 22 lbs, which isn’t horrible, I could spare it, in my opinion. My family made me promise I wouldn’t get under 125 lbs and I’ve stuck to that. I am in a better place now so eating is a bit easier but I still understand how your mind just cannot tell your body it’s hungry or needs nutrients. Try to stay healthy, a healthy body creates a healthy mind.

      Thank you for sharing. It helps to know there are people out there that have gone through the same. After the 2nd D Day, are you still together? Don’t feel like you have to answer. I hope we both get to a place where we are thriving.

        No ma’am, she ended things to be with her, which is fine. I was over it and couldn’t be with her anymore.
