It’s Been a Year Since My Heart Attack and I’m Healthy – Time to Celebrate

With all the interruptions the past two weeks, we haven’t had a chance to put up our christmas tree and decorate the house. I had planned to do it last weekend but ended up in bed instead. I went to visit my mom today and realized I’d be back next weekend since it’s Christmas. This year has absolutely flown by. We’ve made a pact to get it all done tomorrow for sure. We have one week from today until Christmas. On the 7th day before Christmas my true love gave to me . . . 7 swans a swimming!

December 21st will also be exactly one year since my heart attack. I remember being very freaked out about having parts put in my body lol. It was a crazy time to say the least. One minute I was at home watching TV and working on the computer and the next we were headed to the hospital. It began as a numbing of my right arm and then spread across to my left. It was somewhat like a hyperventalation that was much more intense.

We lived right by a hospital so I was getting treatment in less than 15 minutes. There’s hospitals within 5 miles of everywhere here, I swear lol. I started feeling better right away so after a while, I decided to head home though they wanted to keep me overnight to monitor me. I thought it might just be an anxiety attack or something similar and I felt fine so I signed myself out. Bad move. The next morning, I began having the same issues as I got ready for work so once again, we headed to the hospital and this time, I took a bag because I knew I wasn’t coming home that day!

My father had heart disease for 27 years so this is nothing new to me. I’ve made many lifestyle changes because he had a heart attack at 51 also. I totally believe that his history helped me because when all was said and done, I suffered no damage. I have always watched my diet and I knew the symptoms right away. Getting treatment immediately saved me from damage that could’ve been debilitating. I have stents now so my arteries will stay open for a long time. Other than the cost of the meds to keep me healthy, I’m doing wonderful coming up to my 1 year anniversary of being healthy again 🙂

I believe the stress of all that happened from the porn industry contributed to this happening so I now meditate and use my mojos and mantras to keep me relaxed which relates to healthier. I love music and use many songs to exercise to so I put this all together in a form of yoga/meditation program. The stretches are great for my back problems and the rest is great for the soul 🙂

You know, the main thing I’ve learned in the past year is that what happened yesterday doesn’t matter. It’s what tomorrow brings and how you respond to it that’s important.

How will you respond your tomorrows in 2012? I’ve made the resolution to “Shine a Light” on Sex Trafficking in America. What would you like to change??

Thanks for your publication.

  12. I must say, as a lot as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a great grasp around the subject matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from far more than 1 angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so very much. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just heading for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your personal thought process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.

Its not like youve said something extremely impressive –more like youve painted a pretty picture above an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, here.

  20. I figured out more something totally new on this weight loss issue. 1 issue is that good nutrition is extremely vital if dieting. A huge reduction in fast foods, sugary foodstuff, fried foods, sweet foods, beef, and whitened flour products could be necessary. Possessing wastes organisms, and poisons may prevent objectives for losing belly fat. While a number of drugs briefly solve the matter, the awful side effects will not be worth it, and so they never present more than a non permanent solution. It is just a known indisputable fact that 95% of diet plans fail. Many thanks sharing your notions on this web site.
