ASD is a congenital heart defect where you have a hole in one of the interior walls of your heart. I was born with it, my family found out when I was about a month old, and I was supposed to have open heart surgery when I was five but it healed up on its own for some unknown reason. Anyways it's been something of a ghost in the family ever since- we never talk about it, but I'm an only child and my parents were always incredibly protective and generally grateful I was alive, as I was born in the early 80s and open heart surgery for a five year old was tricky. I've had to learn about it from Wikipedia and the like. So I'd be interested in hearing fom other people, if you're comfortable sharing.
