“Not all scars need to be concealed;
some need to be displayed
to remind everyone of the battles you have survived –
that you’re at heart still a warrior,
who never gives up
– Kiran Acharya
On October 10, 2020, I was diagnosed with heart disease.
It came out of nowhere.
I had no pre-existing conditions.
And I died…but was resuscitated with CPR, defibrillation shock paddles, and a ventilator while recovering in a drug induced coma.
I now live with an internal defibrillator and have no damage to my brain, heart, or nervous system.
A medical mystery.
This is my story.
