I know this is a little late but I have to write about the heart results!
2 weeks ago I went and saw a heart specialist.
I was really worried about what he was going to say because the readings on the monitor were a little crazy.
We went to the IMC Hospital (that automatically makes it 10 times scarier.) for the appointment.
We met with Doctor Weiss.
He went over my readings and he told me that everything is okay.
Nothing to be worried about.
I have to admit that when he first said that I didn't really know how to react.
I was happy but I felt dumb.
I had gone to the doctor, had and EKG, wore a heart monitor for a week, did a 24 hour urine sample,and I am now sitting with a HEART SPECIALIST and it comes back as nothing?
This made me feel almost upset and I didn't say much.
He said that the cause for the weird readings is most likely stress and anxiety.
He told me that I am not drinking enough and that I need to add more salt to my diet. (weird.)
My family was so relieved but I was embarrassed.
I didn't want to have to tell people that I went through all of that for nothing.
Selfish, I know.
I think about it now and it truly is such a blessing.
It wasn't nothing.
I learned a lot from this little experience!
Life is fragile.
Every second counts.
And there is no time for regret or wasted time.
I couldn't be more grateful to be healthy and have nothing to worry about as far as everything with my heart.
I know that someone is watching out for me!
I have been following directions and trying to drink more and eat more salt and I have already noticed a difference!
Such a relief. :)
