Where Have I Been ?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Sorry I have been so silent this past week. I kind of had a health scare last weekend. It has been a pretty stressful month , with both girls moving, trying to keep up on the canning, keep up with the house, the daycare, and some personal family issues, among some of the things. Well I have been having light chest pains and being so busy I just pretty much ignored them. Well last week end they got a little more intense, so I figured I had better go to the E,R, ( and those of you that know me know it has to be bad before I will even think about going to the Doctor much less the ER).

So long story short I have a bundle branch block. My understanding of it is it could be nothing or it could be something. Some people have it and never know others have it and it is a problem. I had a stress test scheduled last Monday Morning, when I got there the only person that can  do the test I have to have is gone for the week so we rescheduled for this coming Friday. Of course I can’t have the simple inexpensive stress test I have to do the high dollar one, and since I don’t have insurance that just helps my stress even more haha.

Anyway I just pretty much took last week off, didn’t really do much just kind of took it easy ( although now my to do is is even longer lol). I am now trying to get caught up while taking it easy.

I have started taking my CO Q 10, hawthorn, garlic tincture, and a couple other things. I have also cut all caffeine out. I used to drink a ton of Diet Dr Pepper, I have cut way back this past year. But when I get stressed I seem to drink more of it and have been drinking more of it than normal. I have read where  aspartame is bad for you heart among a thousand other things,So I have to wonder if that hasn’t played a part in my issue, so I have also cut all aspartame (which I don’t consume very much anyway) , no more sugar and trying to cut carbs. I feel with a few lifestyle changes it won’t be an issue. They did and x-ray of my heart while in the ER and it looked good, So I will do the stress test this coming Friday and hope and pray it is all good ( I am pretty sure it will be).

I do think I may of scared Andy a little, he never buys me flowers but when I got out of the ER there were flowers in the truck for me.( so sweet).

My new motto is Just Stay Calm and don’t worry about it, it will get done in due time.

Although Prayers would be greatly appreciated for my stress test next Friday.

Have a great week and I will be getting caught up on my post little by little. 🙂

    I have a small heart issue myself. The feeling of panic about my issue caused even more problems for me. Be calm and try to “let it go-let it go”!!!! You will be in my prayers!!

      Thanks, Andy and the girls keep telling me I need to stop trying to do so much and slow down, that I have to much on my plate. Will admit it is hard to slow down I have all these things that need done and the other things that I want to do lol. I am working on it though lol.
      Have a great day and thanks for the prayers.
