    The co worker who lost her dad couple of weeks ago, was back in work today, We all
    could see on her how much she was thinking about her dad and she had hard to focus on her
    job. She told me that her dad wasn't sick, he had no disease, nothing, he had been a healthy man
    and suddenly got a heart attack middle of the night and passed away. He was only 47 years old

    Also after my friends granny suddenly died of a heart attack. She had also been healthy
    no sickness or anything. I started to think how short life actually can be, we take everything
    for granted. Yes I am still young I have many many years left to live and I die when I am very
    old. One day we are doing our daily routines and the next day we are dead. I know this sounds
    horrible, but it's life.

    Be thankful for everyday you have on this earth. Be thankful for your family and friends.
    Appreciate life more, be happy and enjoy what life brings. Live your life to the fullest.
    That's what I am going to do.

    Nicely said, Jojo.

    We can walk down a city street just about any day and, if we're looking, see any number of occasions that should raise the thought within us: "Y'know, I really don't have problems after all."

    Appreciate what you have.

    That's called SDS, Sudden Death Syndrome and usually only one type of heart attack is responsible for it. STEMI, ST-Elevated Myocardial Infarction. There are 4 warning signs of it but they're all so subtle nobody recognizes them. That's why one of our doctors did a video of it.
    Also, the absence of chest pain while one or more of the warning signs are present is not an indicator that you shouldn't get it checked out. You don't have to be feeling chest pain to be having certain types of heart attacks.

    I hope nobody gets upset at me because I give information instead of having a melodramatic emotional reaction during an emergency or traumatic situation. One of our patient's friends called me a horrible, insensitive person because I failed to show the "appropriate emotional response" when his friend was having a Trauma 1 emergency.
    My reaction instead was to treat his friend and be emotionally distant or appear as if I'm not there at all in terms of emotional responses. Doing it any other way while at work would fail me miserably.
    Actually every one of her friends got enraged at me, and one called me a loony-bin. But never mind. It's only important to this post in that my first paragraph of explaining and giving information instead of being emotional might make someone else angry. If it made this patient's friends angry, I'm going to assume they're not the only ones who can react that way.

    Words to live by.

    Yes, it can happen to anyone. I was at low risk. Our family doesn't really have them. The Heart Attack Fairy visited me anyway. I know some of you already read about it, but if you haven't and you're curious, the story starts here.

    We're all lucky to be on this planet and drawing air at this time in human history. Sometimes we appreciate that feeling of "lucky" more than other times.
