Rhesus,Patience. It's ten years since my AMI and my friends and family (except my daughter who was very involved) have pretty much forgotten. Early on, everyone was concerned and some even alarmed. Two friends who called themselves my "bitchnannies" followed me around the slopes not allowing me to ski anything they considered too strenuous. The most significant lesson I took from my experience was to listen to my body. When it happened, the denial I felt could have killed me had it not been for my daughter insisting that I allow myself to be admitted to the hospital. All the best.
