I joined this group because my 52 year old son was diagnosed in 2014. They started surgery and decided the aneurism wasn't large enough. I am so proud of him taking care to do whatever it takes to stay healthy including giving up a job because of too much stress. He walks, watches diet, meditates and calls if he needs to talk. He raised his son on his own and has no significant other. There have been improvements in care and surgery and hopefully will be more before before surgery is unavailable.

Thank you, @mtnyankee – love how you shared your son's story. I can strongly relate and appreciate that giving up a stressful job can provide a lot of relief from daily stressors. I recently (before my diagnosis of TAA) decided to step down from the extremely stressful administrative component of my job. I am hopeful that will help me a great deal (right now in the process of training my successor but will leave that component of my work in a couple of weeks). I feel fortunate to have put that change in motion before I knew about this.
