Introduction In March of 2009 I had a heart attack. It was as much a surprise to me as it was to the doctors; I don't have any risk factors--no high blood pressure, no diabetes, no clogged arteries, no family history; plus I'm a young (in cardiac terms) female. Definitely NOT the usual suspect for a heart attack. But tell that to my body--I had one anyway. Turns out that I experienced a rare thing called a Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection. Don't google the term unless you're prepared to be depressed by mortality rates and statistics, and the fact that doctors really have no clue about what causes some people to have them. The bright side is that my toast landed butter side up, and I'm still here. Earlier this year I put together a one-shot fanzine called A Change of Heart; you can get a PDF copy of it here. This blog is an extension of that fanzine and an effort to reach more people, both in and out of of the fannish community.
