I went to the emergency room yesterday after another stressful day at work.
I thought for sure I was having a heart attack. I had all the symptoms and was totally scared.
I called my doctor,who I didn't see in 3 years (I don't have insurance) and she told me to go to the ER. So I left work at 2pm and picked up my husband and went.
We wre there from around 2:45 until 8:00pm.
They did afew tests and from all the stress I have high blood pressure. (I have always had low pressure) I can understand that as you get older you can develope high pressure but I felt like my face was gonna blow up out my ears.
Anyway, I am seeing the doctor this Friday morning and I am going to really eat better than I have been.After I see her Friday I am going to start my Yoga back up. I am just walking now as I feel a bit light headed(unless this feeling goes away sooner.
I was worrying about Bill,(hubby) and not REALLY taking better care of me,and thankfully I was scared into thinking how dumb that was.
We ate good today. I am going to get another big glass of water, I did do 6427 steps,2.55 miles and burned 1152 calories.
Plus we got more snow and I sill took our dog for a few walks.
Hope you all are doing good.
emoticon Keep smiling.

    Sometime we need a little wake up call.
Glad you're okay.

    Glad to hear that it wasn't a heart attack! Sounds like this was efinitely a wake up call, but how sad to have to experience something like this.
Since you don't have insurance, make sure you check with the hospital in their financial services department because hospitals have it where some of your bill can be written off depending on your income.

    I'm glad it wasn't a heart attack, and that you now know it's time to look after you too. Less salty foods, and more water will help. emoticon

    Sometimes we need these wake up calls. I am so glad that it wasn't more serious. Yoga is a great way to ease yourself back. You will do it! emoticon

    You come first you can't look after others if you're ill. Hope it was just a moment in time. Not something that needs a lot of care.
