WARNING: SELF-PITY AHEAD
I'm lonely as hell.
But, just as important (if not moreso), I'm scared. Irrational as it may be, I'm scared that my ticker might go into overdrive again. Since there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason behind the flips into super-ventricular-tachycardia, I have no way of knowing what (if anything) will set it off. So I'm scared.
And alone. Sure, I can pick up my cellphone and call my folks, but other than them I've not got any friends I can call (heck, I don't even have The Librarian's phone number... we plan anime night via e-mail) to commiserate with.
Or whine at, whichever.
Know what? At times like this, I really hate being an intelligent duck.
(UPDATE @ 112pm: Then I feel like crap for bitching about my life when there's people who had lives that have been a helluvalot harder... like this guy. I fully expect that his coffin'll be dropped.) Please note, he too had a spleenectomy.

Suffice to say that while it HAS been discussed in my case, it's only been in the context of "way way down the road, if I start having this thing happen more often than once a year."
In the grand scheme of things, this isn't really a pacemaker sort of thing... unless it gets a lot worse.
