When I log onto Facebook I like to take little quizzes because I think it's fun to see the results. One of them was 'How Feminine Are You?'. I got that I am 55% masculine, and 45% feminine. It said I'm a healthy balance. Now, I'm not sure how muc

SamV I hope they find a cause and the result relieves you of the panic attacks and A Fib. I am aware of ablation. I suffered from neurocardiogenic syncope and electrophysiology studies were performed by an electrophysiologist, a cardiac specialist.

You did so much by writing this. I read these and I feel like it's a real life changing moment but the people writing it can't imagine what just happened. The power just shifted to you. It happens at it's own pace thankfully so we don't get overwh
