Suggestions Not Followed b l Tue Feb 23 12:00:51 2010
HI all I have been away from my computer for 13 days I have 275 posts to catch up on. We went out of town for 3days. Then because I did not follow suggestions from the Doctor for over a year I found myself in the hospital with a possible heart attack. I was at work reading water meters all of a sudden I had severe chest tightness profuse sweating racing pulse dizziness all the classic symptoms that we read about. I called the fire inspector to come and do a wellness check my Blood Pressure was ok I was flushed rapid pulse and soaking wet. He called the fire chief to come over and check me out they called my boss. I promised I would go to the doctor to get checked. The doctor ran EKG all was ok. he told me that my pulse was very high and my heart was working to hard I needed to be seen by a cardiologist now !!! do not pass go do not fool around. The Drs, office made an appointment with the cardiologist with in the hour.. The cardiologist ran an EKG all was ok except left hand and foot was asleep feeling,and pounding at the base of my skull and neck. He said he could not say if I had a heart attack or if I did not have one but I needed to be in the hospital right now for observation. I ended up in the hospital from Thursday night to Saturday morning where I was transported by ambulance to another hospital 30 miles away for an angiogram/angioplasty, Was discharged 4hrs after the procedure to home. All because a year ago my DR. suggested I take the high blood pressure pills, cholesterol pills lose weight about 45 lbs quit smoking well I took the pills until the prescription ran out then was lax on getting it refilled with my fiancee asking every day did you take the medicine yea yea I told her, never lost weight in fact gained more weight,never stopped smoking. So the moral of this story is follow suggestions of the program and learn to really care about yourself. Do not look for the easier softer way, Learn to love yourself no matter what. This time when asked if I wanted to be revived if something should happen I willingly said yes please. Before my reply was I would sue everybody who brought me back to this rotten world.Today I am grateful that my HP gave me a second chance to follow suggestions and to be sober for another 24hrs I have not had a cigarette since last Thurs. I am working on changing my old habits and diet and will be back to work next Mon morning. The program really works if you do work it.
