EL DE ROJO EXISTE

El corazón existe y se ubica exactamente en ese órgano que bombea sangre, al lado izquierdo del cuerpo, por ahí, donde uno pone la mano cuando suena un himno. Y existe, porque solo es que el corazón esté triste para que ese pedacito de cuerpo duela como si le hubieran dado una cachetada. Duele tanto que la respiración se detiene un poco, que llega el insomnio y esas amigas mojadas que bajan por las mejillas. El corazón existe y es el que manda. Que no hablen de razones, ni de cerebros.

    Y esta descripción de signos y síntomas cardiacos parece corresponderse a lo que actualmente se esta llamando el “El Síndrome del Corazón Roto o Quebrado”.
    Aquí les dejo una breve definición del síndrome, publicado por la Clínica Mayo:

    Definition
    By Mayo Clinic staff

    Broken heart syndrome is a temporary heart condition brought on by stressful situations, such as the death of a loved one. Many people who have broken heart syndrome may have sudden chest pain or may think they’re having a heart attack. These broken heart syndrome symptoms may be brought on by the heart’s reaction to a surge of stress hormones. In broken heart syndrome, a part of your heart temporarily enlarges, a condition called cardiomyopathy.

    First described medically in 1991 by Japanese doctors, the condition was originally called takotsubo cardiomyopathy. Takotsubo is a type of pot used by Japanese fishermen to capture octopuses. When doctors take X-ray images of a person who’s experiencing broken heart syndrome, part of his or her heart resembles the pot. Today, the condition is also referred to as stress cardiomyopathy, stress-induced cardiomyopathy or apical ballooning syndrome.
    Broken heart syndrome is treatable, and usually requires about a week to recover.

    Causes
    It’s thought that a brief surge of stress hormones, such as adrenaline, might temporarily damage the hearts of some people. How these hormones might hurt the heart or whether something else is responsible isn’t clear.

    Broken heart syndrome is often preceded by an intense physical or emotional event. Some of the triggers of broken heart syndrome have included news of an unexpected death of a loved one, a frightening medical diagnosis, domestic abuse or losing a lot of money. Physical stressors, such as an asthma attack, a car accident or major surgery, also have been known to trigger broken heart syndrome.

    How is broken heart syndrome different from a heart attack?
    Most heart attacks are caused by a complete blockage of a heart artery due to a blood clot forming at the site of narrowing from fatty buildup (atherosclerosis). In broken heart syndrome, the heart arteries are not blocked, although blood flow in the arteries of the heart may be reduced.

    …Yo sentí que existía en otras circunstancias… donde me encontraba inmensamente feliz y lo sentí saltar tan fuerte que supe dónde se encontraba, conectado con una sonrisa interminable, de esas que salen junto con las amigas mojadas… no sentí dolor… sentí como si cabalgara por todo mi cuerpo y reposara en mi pecho… desde entonces, busco esas circunstancias…

    Sí Camila, existe para mantener nuestro cuerpo activo y, de una manera muy hermosa, para cuando nos acercamos de la persona amada… hablar para nosotros “saltitando” de la ternura y sinceridad de nuestro “amor”…
    Paulo, desde Brasil…
