This blog is my way to chronicle the journey through life with cardiomyopathy, valvular disease, beta thallasemia minor and other odd health ailments.  I read Echodoc's post a while back about not seeing things from the side of the patient and that inspired me to start writing what I'm experiencing.  Just to give caregivers an idea of what a patient goes through, a little background to the "unique case".
