When I was 13, I suddenly got very sick and needed a heart transplant. Within fives months, I got that transplant. My whole world changed very quickly and somewhere along the way I got a little lost. I thought when my heart died, part of me died along with it. I was struggling to get my life back to normal (the way it was before) while at the same time believing I would never be normal or myself again. It’s been 20 years since then and I’m starting to realize that I didn’t go anywhere. I’m still here and much more than a heart transplant recipient. I’m an introvert, and an athlete. I’m creative and think about things a lot. I love adventures and people. There’s so much more and I get the rest of my life to figure it all out! That’s why I’ve name my blog “Life After a Heart Transplant”. I’m here to document the things I go through that impact me or the things I think about or just regular life things. There’s some transplant stuff mixed with regular every day stuff. Come along with me on my adventure through the rest of my life!
