If I didn't know better I'd think you were me. I was born with a congenital heart defect and also have von willebrands. I thought I was the only one. I also have chronic fatigue syndrome and more recently discovered that I am hypoglycemic. I think God knows that some people are strong enough to handle the illnesses. It is very hard when everyone thinks you are a hypochondriac all the time. I tell them that I wish I was healthy, I don't like being sick but yet somehow I bring it all on myself. Go figure.
