I’m 35 and I may suddenly have lost the rest of my life. I’m panicking, just a bit.

Thanks for your brave and vulnerable post. I’m 37 and was stopped “dead in my tracks” (pun intended) by a pulmonary embolism- blood clots to the lungs last fall. Its about a 10–20% chance of simply dropping dead when you have one and the chances of having another one are far higher when it is unprovoked like mine was. Admittedly I’ve been thinking about it more in the last week than in a long time and your post brought me back to the important things. For me they are:

Faith, Family, Friends, Finances and Future.

I am glad for the reminder to keep it in perspective and put the first things first. After all, the Future part is the one that is the least certain as you so well spoke of in your article.

All the best with your treatment and seeing as Faith was first in my list, I’ll be praying for you and your family.
