    I think I almost had a heart attack when the Bengals beat the Steelers but I was too drunk to care.

    Honestly though, I have high blood pressure and am 28 and it pisses me off and is scary. It runs in the family and there is no history in either side of family of heart attack, stroke, or anything else.....just high B.P. but I know I can always be the first. I would call 100%, my baby girl and wife are too important for me to just give up.

    The bartender told me that the guy finally went in for tests. In any case, he hasn't been back.

    I've heard about that aspirin business, but you should go off of it if you have surgery scheduled.

    The last two times I have mowed the lawn Ive had what I can only describe as severe indigestion. Never had indigestion like this before.

    First time I had eaten some really strong white onion and blamed it on the onions. The second time...I cant remember what I had eaten but it wasnt anything strong or harsh like onion.

    Pains in my chest.....couldnt breathe....I kept belching till it was over...

    I was scared the second time...but I was so intent on getting my mowing and other things done before leaving town I just kept on mowing and felt fine after the initial belching.

    Im bad about putting off care for myself.... Have not been to the doctor in over a year but I am going to make an appointment cause I dont want to lose him and I need to start back on my blood pressure medications which have run out...many months ago.

    I think I have a fractured ankle right now and I need to get it looked at but Ive been putting off getting an appointment cause of work.... we are not extremely busy but we have some things that I''ll have to be involved in.

    Anyhow...Im a dumbass.... Probably a lot of folks like me out there...

    Its sad how unbearably true this can be. My wife had a allergic reaction to some antibiotics one night and we called 911. Turned out to be a $6000 E.R. bill, $2500 Ambulance Bill, $1500 Fireman bill and so on...

    Its ridiculous to even think that you cant have an emergency situation without getting reemed.

    This is nuts.
    My wife and I have to move to some other country that doesn't financially rape its citizens.
    Denmark is shown as the least corrupt nation but I don't speak a word of their language.
