    My chest hurts when I do the exercise and it hurts when I don't do the exercise. I guess I'll keep at it. It's best to die trying than to die giving up.

    Why does your chest hurt?

    I was born with an enlarged heart. my right ventricle is several times larger than it should be. Later in life, the right side and back started scaring and the entire right and back are pretty much dead.

    I don't speak about it a whole lot, But it scares the hell out of me because I wasn't supposed to live this long.

    The only thing that keeps me sane and not in full panic mode is I try not to think about it, bro.

    Sorry to hear but it sounds like you are taking care of yourself. Have you tried Q10 and all that? To protect the heart muscle? Wishing you well, SP. I know a little bit how you feel. I lost a lung and have scarring in the rest from necrotic pneumonia. Terrifies me anytime I get a chest cold.

    Wishing you well. You got this :Thumbsup:

    Thank you, brother. It's not all bad news, Some of my heart doctors tell me that I shouldn't count myself out that there is no rule or standard for how long I can live with this condition. So the future is unknown. I didn't know you lost a lung. I'm sorry to hear that :(. I do understand how the breathing issues feel though. The right ventricle my heart doctors tell me is responsible for removing carbon dioxide from the lungs. I'm nearly always short of breath, You aren't in this alone brother. It's like what Dr Stevens told me once, There is no rule limiting us from what we can or can not do, as long as we strive for that. :)

    This is True, Plus even though I tend to complain about it. I fully believe the treadmill is helping me. Over all, it seems like my breathing and breath is more fulfilling, I do tend to have fewer episodes where my heart starts racing for no reason. I mean, It hurts a little while I'm doing the treadmill. But over all, I can tell it's improved my health :)

    I can hardly do anything, especially in summer time. After 13 attacks, Dr says I will never do well in heat again. I have air conditioning everywhere. It helps a lot but, I still have to take it easy. One task a day and I am wiped.

    Not sure what you mean. My heat & electric are included in my rent. I have a subsidized apartment. Using air conditioning in the car will tend burn up the gas faster. I don't drive that much so it really does not bother me.

    Still at it every day :) I don't know about the outside physically. But on the inside. I can tell it's helping me so much. Today I did my two sets of thirty mins. No pain. Not even shortness of breath. It's helping so much :D

    Good on you Shadowprophet... takes quite a bit of self control and determination to be so consistent doing something like that...

    Eh. Some can look at it that way. I think with me it's mostly fear of health consequences if I don't. But I've heard fear is a great motivator
