    Re: Exercise stress test and exercising

    Barbara - Thank you for your kind words. As to your request - I am a firm believer that peace comes from knowledge. For some, religion gives them hope. I think that belief and knowledge of ones religion fulfills this requirement and peace is the end result. If we (the royal we) know what to expect, we can prepare. Once we prepare, all we can do is what thought was the right thing to do, but know that things don't always happen as we expect. Still, we know what the goal is and we strive to direct ourselves towards that - a little at a time.
    As to my "handle" Quietly going insane, you'd have to understand my life. When I DX, I was 47, married for 25 years, 3 boys. Picture postcard right? In reality, my marriage was crumbling, I'd lost many jobs during the recession, the FBI raided my house, my sister had just died recovering from a valve job (non-HCM related), my mother would pass within a year. Oh, and I needed a Myectomy. Survival was all I could do. Since then the chaos of my life continues, but in many different ways. Some good, some bad. Some happy, some sad - you get the picture. I've accepted "the new normal", and all its trials and tribulations. I still chip away at my goal, its all anyone can do.
    There is also medication - it does wonders keeping me peaceful!
    In all seriousness, Just like HCM affects us all differently, our reaction to it both mentally and physically differs for us all. Coming here and sharing brings knowledge to many. Keep learning.

      Thank you Marc. I will do as you say and keep learning. Thank you also for sharing the meaning behind your handle. I am sorry for the loss of your Mom and sister, the jobs, the fbi raid, and your marital troubles. That must have been a very difficult time. I hope it helps to know that you are providing much help to folks like me who are struggling with hcm. By helping others - God sees your kindness.

      Be well.
      Barbara
