My first attack was in 2002 , since I have had 4 more attacks , 2 open heart with 8 bypases . 16 heart caths and i am still kicking . Can not do what i could several years ago but i am still alive ! I wish I could say i have taken care of myself but i can't , I've had some great doctors. I still have a lot of chest pain but I can not afford the drugs( i am allergic to nitro), i fall between the cracks for help but thats ok , I am still here ! The big is not done with me yet !

DON'T EVER GIVE UP , THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE FOR TOMORROW !

    JamesPL,
    Wow! Your story is quite an inspiration! If I ever think poorly of my own situation, I'm going to think about you. I wish you continued success!

    esBee,
    i am sorry to hear you cannot afford the drugs you need to take for your condition. i hear that often - particularly among people my age (retired) with health issues like vascular disease, COPD, chronic kidney disease and such. the problem of not being able to afford needed medications needs to be addressed. no one should be denied medical treatment, including prescriptions.
