A long and wicked life followed by five minutes of perfect grace gets you into Heaven. An equally long life of decent living and good works followed by one outburst of taking the name of the Lord in vain - then have a heart attack at that moment and be damned for eternity. Is that the system....?
Chest pain can come on suddenly at any time. You try to ignore it at first, but your chest pain has you scared and worried. Could you be having a heart attack? Should you go to the emergency room (ER)?
CHEST PAINS? DON'T LIE DOWN!
Something that we can do to help ourselves - Nice to know.
Why keep aspirin by your bedside?
About Heart Attacks
There are other symptoms of an heart attack besides the pain on the left arm.
One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating, however these symptoms may also occur less frequently.
Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.. The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep, did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.
If that happens:
- immediately dissolve 2 aspirins in your mouth
- and swallow them with a bit of water
- say "heart attack!"
- say that you have taken 2 aspirins..
- phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by

If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night. The reason is that aspirin has a 24 hour "half-life". Therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the aspirin would be strongest in your system.
FYI aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest...(years) when it get old it smells like vinegar.
Just remember While doctors try to prevent coronary disease by treating high blood pressure and high cholesterol, it's not 100 percent effective. If there are warning symptoms like angina with exercise, there is enough time to see a doctor and get started on effective treatments that reduce risk. Having a heart attack causes permanent damage, even if it doesn't kill you.
until next time....
