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
Men are much better recognizing a HA than women. The symptoms are a lot different for women from men's. I have spray nitro. Three bottles of it. One beside my bed, one in my purse and it goes with me everywhere, and one in the pocket on my scooter. It acts immediately. A heck of a lot faster then the pills.

That's an easy decision. More bacon. And if that is not possible, you can send it to me.

True, that should about cover 1lb of store bacon.
I didn't get my other belly ordered until Friday and he is closed Mon & Tues. Add a week of curing onto that after I pick it up Wed and I just might run out of the last of the homemade bacon in the freezer.

I think it's comical when he doctors tell you about HA symptoms. It could be pain in your arm, back, jaw, chest, neck, shoulder. It could be heartburn, etc.

If I paid attention to every pain in those parts, I'd live in the ER.

I don't rmember the last time I had such a busy day day and got done less
Nothing had a flow or any sense of efficiency to it, but I did manage to turn the air-conditioning on today. So yes, I moved the switch on the bottom of the thermostats from Heat to Cool

I smoked for 19 years then just decided to quit 1 day, gained to much weight, but I no longer smoke. Dh has smoked since he was 12 years old. 3 years ago he had a heart attack on Christmas day, he was 49 years old. The dr. told him to stop smoking, cut back on red meat, try & reduce his stress level & exercise. He has done none of the above. I feel like he is a ticking time bomb. I have harped on him long enough. He still continues to smoke 2 packs a day & has not changed his lifestyle at all. We have a 14 year old daughter. Time for me to lose more weight & get healthy, I want to be around for our daughter. I got back in the pool tonight for the 1st time in 5 weeks. It felt great. Feeling a little sore, I was in there 45 mn but only did 12 laps, pretty slow going but I am starting to feel it now. Took a pain pill, will take it a little more easy in the pool tomorrow.

I thought you were going out.
Put the guac back in the fridge and step away from the door...
