If you are interested in the topic of New Life After Near Death, I recommend My Life After a Heart Attack at 38


The article discusses the author’s unexpected and near fatal heat attack and how it impacted him psychologically afterward.

I found myself in a similar situation from a pulmonary embolism which struck unexpectedly as I was walking. In the aftermath I experienced, as did the author of the article, PTSD, feelings of victimization — “Why me” — and attempts to self-health including meditation. These and other aspects of adaptation and recover from a near fatal medical emergency are chronicled in memoir The Next Breath: New Life After Near Death.

If you have had a similar experience or have a loved one who has, I can recommend My Life After a Heart Attack at 38 and The Next Breath for a more comprehensive examination of the crisis and it’s aftermath.
