Mom has a blockage

Saturday, November 03, 2018

My mom went and did a stress test yesterday where they make you go on a treadmill... The dr told her she has a blockage. They wanted to keep her for the weekend and go in and see where it is Monday... They did let get go home with some patches and pills. I'm so worried for Monday. They told her she had to relax and anybody who knows my mom would laugh at this because she can't relax at all. With worry for her I also feel like this is another sign/wake up to me. Not just for my weight and health but for me to relax too.... Both of my parents, although n longer together are always on the go. Workworkwork. Both have blood pressure problems. Anyone else ever see a family member going through something like this? Was it a reminder for you to take your health more seriously? How do you cpe with emotions? When I'm stressed I'll eat more so need to work on that.

    Yes, same family health issues in the passed. About 7 years ago, my dad had quadrupled bypass surgery. He made it through surgery, however, didn't change bad habits, and had a heart attack a year later. I usually will work out when highly stressed.

    When I'm stressed I gain weight regardless of eating. But then I have an anxiety disorder. I wish you and your family family luck. Prayers
