Share whatever information you want us to know about you

41 yrs old. Had LVAD that clotted after 6wks and I then became the 6th total artificial heart transplant at UW in Seattle and PNW. Waited another 10 mo before real transplant. Horrible chronic pain and developed neuropathy for reasons unknown until I did my own research on my meds. 90 perc disabled and couldn't walk for 3 yrs. after my own research I've learned which meds I took that caused it and I hear to many people with the same issue and want to share what helped me. Had my transplant at 38yrs old. Died twice along the way

  • And Neil how do you disprove a soul? And science has proven it only exists when your dead? I was dead for almost five minutes. I'm surprised science even believes a soul is real unless you've talked to one and asked it questions? If not then how does it scientifically even exist? I'm gonna have to ask my alien friend about that!! Lol
  • Neil actually I only believe in Bigfoot! Lmao. I understand you can everything and always find a way to disprove faith but I promise you your gonna wish u were a believer when you stand before your maker! Now ........ I'm gonna go research the giant squid thing cause that sounds tasty!! I think I've been hunting the wrong animals all these years! Lmao
  • Danny, it's great you survived such a harrowing journey and you're OK now!

    But that has NOTHING to do with showing a soul or afterlife is real! You believe everything people tell you just because they said it?? LMAO!

    If that is your criteria then you believe all the people who've been abducted by aliens, seen Bigfoot, the swamp monster, 200 foot giant squid, etc.

    Remember a soul has already been DISPROVEN when you see a brain damaged or brain dead person. The soul is supposed to kick in when a person dies but never does when a person is brain damaged or brain dead!
