I’ve been getting up at 5 am, YES! YOU HEARD ME! 5, that’s F-I-V-E A.M. to take my Baha’i prayer walk. Praying for 45 minutes to an hour has been really good for my soul but unfortunately Tallulah PaceHead, my Biotronik Pacemaker would rather sleep in. She is a bit cranky getting up when it’s still dark.
Toward the middle of my walks I’ve been getting light-headed to the point where I’ve had to stop every so often. Yesterday the light-headedness hit almost immediately. I kept going thinking it would get better. The walk turned into 1 1/2 hours. To get back home I had to stop every few feet so I wouldn’t pass out (well, that’s how it felt).
Time to stop ignoring the symptoms so I high-tailed it (in the car) to my cardiologist and sat in the waiting room till they could fit me in. Turns out Tallulah had to be cranked up a bit more. As if she wasn’t cranky enough!
