your post hit me - i’ve had 4 heart attacks - the paramedics weren’t too sure if i’d make it to the hospital on the last one. that scared the shit out of me -didn’t want to die with no one around me except these strangers…
one big thing - don’t stress over it, don’t worry about it. you don’t want that stress.
take out as much life insurance as you can afford to protect your family - good thing i had the foresight to do that before the heart attacks. next to impossible for me to get anymore at this point.
it’s been almost 4 years since the first and 2 years since the last - and i’m only 48. never was fat, had a cholesterol profile that was excellent, no coffee, no soda - however, i did eat like shit and i stressed incredibly at work and then took it home with me. took 4 of them suckers to learn to really relax.
i cleaned up my act - eat really well now, started weight training, got my bodyfat down to 16% - and i listen very closely to my body how it feels - i can always lift more tomorrow - no need to hurry today.
my heart rhythm is much better, i don’t get as anxious anymore and i most certainly, most definitely do not stress as much anymore. shit happens - and then so does luck and feeling like there ain’t nuthin’ i can’t do, so long as i puts in my 110% effort.
peace be with you.
