Patient story

Debra Carrabbia

Hello my name is Debbie. I am 35 years old. I am married have 3 children. I first got diagnosed in June of 2006 and I did not know what to do. My family is so supportive. I was so depressed when I was diagnose all I did was cry all the time. I still do but not as bad, my children are still young and I want to be here to see them grow up. Right now I am taken this medicine called Revatio and I might have to get the Flolan pump next. I have been going on different web sites to learn more about this disease and I have this survival book and I got this web site out of it. That’s how I became a member. I am from Pittsburgh PA so if anyone is out there and would like to talk feel free to write.

Thank you.
