Panic Attack

Story image

Nearly one year ago I suffered a heart attack at 39 years old. 02/17/2017 started around 5:30am thinking it was a panic attack I went on to get ready for work. On the way to drop my 12 year old off at school I looked at her and told her that I wasn't going to make it and that I needed to go to urgent care to get something stronger for the pain that I was experiencing. I walked in to the nearest urgent care and as soon as I could even understand what was going on I was being rushed by ambulance to the er. I had two 100% blocked arteries in my LAD. This has been truly the hardest year of my life. My family and friends have been with me and there for me through all my ups and downs. I have no words to say how much that has and will always mean to me. I've changed my life 100% all my numbers are that of a normal healthy woman and I've lost over 90 pounds. I'm excited to live the second part of my life healthy and strong!
