Broken Heart

Broken Heart

I guess there really is such a thing as a broken heart. It’s called broken heart syndrome or stress cardiomyopathy. It’s also known Takatsubo Myopathy. It presents with the characteristics of a heart attack, but it’s not, and fortunately patients generally make a full recovery.

This is what happened to a friend this weekend. It was poignant reminder that you never really know how much another person is carrying around in life or when a single moment will break your heart.
