Okay, I was sitting here with Spike and he had a brainstorm. (oh dear) For all our members in Engand and other countries that drive on the left side of the road, he has a question.

We drive on the right side and in school we are taught to go up and down the right side of the stairs.

So for those countries that drive on the left side, are you taught to go up and down the left side of the stairs?

He needs to get a life. Too much time to think. This is not my child. I found him in a cabbage patch.

Congrats to our heart attack survivors. Much better than winning a "reality" show on CBS. Lots of healthy years ahead!

My Mom didn't know she was having a heart attack at age 60 - she thought it was a bad case of indigestion (she had a condition called "spasmodic stomach"). So what did she do? Sit up all night long drinking coffee and smoking! Once in the hospital where she couldn't smoke she figured she may as well stay off them so she didn't HA again. Wasn't easy but she never smoked again.

A few days after getting out of the hospital we were in Costco. I felt weird and panicked. I took a nitro pill and all my systems went weird. I got a ride to the hospital where they told me to go home because there was nothing wrong with me.

Since then, smooth sailing.

LOL! I was in Costco the day before having a heart attack, drove home having a heart attack, it woke me up three times during the night. I finally told Shrek the next morning (after looking up signs and symptoms online), "Well, it's either a medication reaction, a panic attack or a heart attack."

The techs were wheeling the EKG out of the room when I told them if they wanted a good reading on what I was experiencing they should hook me back up, it's starting again. That was the big one that didn't stop.

The fakes happen on my left side, the real one was on my right. Now that I know what to look for, I take anti-anxiety medication and it stops. I used to have GI upsets when anxious, now I have heart symptoms

Oops, that didn't come out right. I meant many more non-HA anniversaries! Oh, heck, you know what I meant!

I had symptoms that were nothing like what I had learned to watch for in a heart attack. Felt like someone was squeezing my throat and my right shoulder. No chest pain, actually no pain...just mild constriction. Heck it was happening as we drove to the ER. I sure got hollered at about not calling for an ambulance. I was walking, talking and making jokes, didn't think I was in that much danger.
