I have been with SP before did very well and maintained my weight for a number of years. Life happens so I am back with a new page.

Scare of my life just happened on Thursday September 21 2017. While I was at work I started to have chest pain I then told CSS I must sit for a bit.

Let's step back earlier that while traveling on the bus to work I was having trouble keeping my eyes opened. That was the first sign something very wrong was going on. Fast forward to the chest pains. It felt as someone stabbed me with a sword that went from my chest to my left shoulder blade. I was taken by ambulance to the ER. I was admitted put on IV EKG Echo Cardia gram stress test were done. First thing that was found I had a servere drop in my potassium level which caused me to have a mock heart attack.

At 56 years old I was very scared I was having a heart attack. I will be turning 57 in December. Pass few years been stressful I got married in 2014 In 2015 my husband passed away. 2016 and this year work stress.

While in the hospital I was put on high blood pressure medication and high cholesterol medication that I have been fighting my primary care physician.
