  • Thank God for flat land

    For all you folks that live in the mountains with HCM, I truly feel for you. We just came back from Gatlinburg. My wonderful husband had to wheelchair me around Dollywood. We would take the trolley up hills so I could walk down them. I am very thankful that I live in an area that is sea level and flat.

    Hi Daisy
    Although I lived in a mountainous area of Pennsylvania, I had more trouble breathing when we visited South Dakota. We went to an animal park there. One area we could drive through, the other area we had to climb a little hill, then walk. After walking up the hill, there was a very kind gentleman there that asked "if I needed help". I really wanted to see this area, so I said yes. I was so fortunate that he was so sympathic to my walking a little, resting, walking a little, resting, that he asked.
