Thank You Anne I will continue to try to change and accept things as they are. 
For today my HP has a plan for me that is none of my business and I am grateful 
for that

Hi Bob, Anne from Scotland here. Oh my goodness, what a scare for you and 
you're poor partner. So glad you are here to tell the tale and are willing to 
adopt changes. We are only asked to try. I wish you well and of course your 
loved ones.
Love and hugs, Anne x

Subject: Suggestions Not Followed

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.         
                          Thanks for letting me share

                   
              Bob
