The Condition of My Heart

I have a heart condition. At least that is what I call it. For years I have struggled with a nagging pain in my chest. Simple tasks like climbing the stairs with a load of laundry, sprinting after a wandering child in the parking lot, or riding a bike up a hill quickly bring on this sharp pain. When the pain first comes on the intensity catches my breath, and it most quickly resides if I lay down and just breathe deeply.
