  1. My name is Heidi and I am 52 years old. I just found out I have CHD because I drove myself to the emergency room thinking I pulled a muscle. 72 hours later I had an ablation, an ICD, and six pill prescriptions. The doctors stood in a row above my bed in the CICU and told me my right ventricle is not shaped correctly and that I was born that way. Two weeks ago I was running 8 miles, two years ago I was participating in an Olympic Triathlon. As a child I was always sick. Obviously my parents never knew it was because of my heart. When I go to the Heart Failure clinic I am given reading material of images of old people and I just feel confused. My therapist told me to reach out to you. She said I need to find “my peers.” Thank you.
