Opening Up About My Diagnosis: Part 1

I’ve heard so many people stress the importance of being your own health advocate.  From diets to diagnoses, we have the challenge of staying on top of things.  This is never as difficult as when we are faced with (and blindsided by!) a scary medical diagnosis.  I’ve decided to open up and share my current health scare….2 aneurysms.

I’m in that stage when it’s all hitting me….shock, confusion, fear.  As I ask other others to share their stories, their life choices, I thought it only fitting that I share a little of my own life.

I’ll soon be posting more about my journey and even asking you, members of this wonderful community, for advice and direction.

Until then….!

  1. I am so glad you stood your ground and weren’t intimidated by the White Coat. I hope you are recovering well and thank you for being courageous enough to write about it. Your experience adds to ours and we may be able to draw on it in the future. A close friend had a brain aneurysm about 3 years ago and it went undiagnosed until it started bleeding into the spinal column. Extremely traumatic! It has taken these 3 years for her to come back to life instead of being desperately afraid every day could bring a new health disaster. Sharing will help and I know I am only one among many who will say I am there if you need me.

  2. I’M so proud of you Ally for sharing your story. I am going to do as much research as I can to see if I c an help you. I don’t know how to spell the diagnosis of the type of aneurism in the carotid artery. If you have the time to send it to me that would be good. Love ya kid!

  3. Thanks for sharing. This information that needs to be heard. Sending you light, love and lots of prayers for a success surgery and speedy recovery.
