That's what I thought and it is the most common response when I tell people I had one. The thing is, there are people much younger than I was that have them too.
I was 35 and knew I had family history of heart conditions, but I felt fine and wasn't worried about my heart yet. October 1, 2010, I started feeling my symptoms but dismissed them as something else. On October 3, 2010, I finally told my wife and she let me make up my own mind to go to the hospital - although in the meantime she made arrangements for some help with our 3 month old daughter and was going to either force me to go or call an ambulance.
I was lucky. I was 99% blocked in my main coronary artery and had some smaller vessels with blockages from 35% - 70%. I only had to have 1 stent put in and there was no noticeable damage to my heart muscle.
I made a vow that I would do everything in my power to be there for my daughter's important life events and to also be there for my wife as long as possible.
So here I am continuing my journey back to a healthy me. I love to network with others, especially other heart attack survivors.
Hello, everyone! I'm Jonathan.
Rebuilding my health after a heart attack in 2010.
