hi, new teen
I'm marisa, i'm 14, i have a congenital (born with) heart problem, I have gone through 8 surgeries and 5 pacemakers, my last surgery was october 2006. For anyone who has just recently got a heart problem and is trying to cope with their peers like i have over the gazillion school years dont stress and be self councious of others staring at you.
You know you're wired when...
Your pacemaker receives radio frequencies.
I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
