Dating w/the LVADThu, 09/06/2012 - 10:05AM
Hi community *waving* This is a rather odd post for me being as though I was married when I first received my HeartWare Vad in 2010. I am 38 and now seperated (not because of the Vad)and have had a few dating invitations. I've pretty much declined most because I really am sceptical of how someone would react. I went on a couple but did not make it known that I had the Vad. With the HeartWare device, it's easy to just pop it in a nice fancy handbag and no one would know. But what would happen if it alarmed- funny how embarrassing that would be *_* Would it scare them away?? Would they ask a million questions?? Would they still be interested?? For these reasons, I've kinda pulled myself away from the dating scene. Has anyone else experienced the same feeling?
