It's either this or that...

Since I am already weak in mind, it certainly puts a strain on me when I am also weak in body; that is-- when they both occur at the same time... I just can't like angina. It is the exact same pain as with a heart attack, only the
nitroglycerin pills will stop the pain! Not only is it painful, it is for me a scary feeling. As told by the doc, you take one little pill and if it does not stop, then you take the second and if it does not stop, then you take the third. Only on 3 or 4 occasions have I ever had to take 3. On the third one and for me on the second one, I sorta start gettin edgy. Cause after the third and no relief, you are to call 911 or load up and get to the ER. Also, they leave you weak as water. So having another bout of angina for the last few days I have hardly done anything as my body is drained from lack of sleep and angina. And why in the world do they mostly happen during the night and wake you up.? My goodness, that is when your body is suppose to be at rest! I was not made to understand it nor can I like it.

With me tail draggin, it takes effort to type and more effort to think of what to type, so I just couldn't make it yesterday. I chose instead to read some blogs. I have my regular blogroll I think is the correct word for blog jumping. I have certain ones I read every day and some times I will read the comments. And as you folks know, before you know it you have jumped from one blog to another and for me I have no idea which blog started me on the roll. Some of the blogs make me laugh, some make me feel like I am not alot different from other folks, some make no sense at all to me and then there are some sad ones that just hurts almost to read, yet they are sharing something they or a loved one is living. I get so involved in the blogs, before you know it, hours can pass.
Since I am no reader of books. I do like my newspapers, I find myself really getting into blog reading. I will cross over some that I think just merits one of my comments so I will throw my two cents worth here and there and be on my way. I try to leave kind comments and use common courtesy and consideration whether I liked the blog or not.

I feel a rambling coming on and my mind might think I am up to it, but my body is saying no and by now you folks is to, so I will stop the humiliation for the day. May we all see others for who they are and what they are having to endure in their lives at the times that they are writing their blogs, to be careful not to judge a person solely on content of their blog, but more on the intention of their heart, mind and body. Until... I can.....

God Bless!

Claudia, I have never had angina, but I can vouch for what it does to a person. My husband has set a world record, I think of the number of angina pains he has in one night. And it is so strange. He hardly ever has a pain in the day time, but as soon as his head hits the pillow, he starts. Every night I think I am going to have to call 911. He took 35 treatments called EECP (Enhanced External Counterpulsation Treatment) that was supposed to help his pain, but it didn't work. The Dr. said some people it helped and some it didn't. He was the one it didn't. Last night he took seven Nitro Tablets. I pray every day for some relief for him.
You are in my thoughts. I figured out a long time ago....Angina is no fun at all. Hang in there!!!

Claudia....My thoughts and prayers are with you as you have to handle the discomfort and anxiety of having angina. Take care of yourself!
Hugs, Grammie

Clara, first of all I am so sorry to hear about your husband. I certainly feel for him and wonder if he finds it strange that it seems to only happen at night or with me, the worst ones are at night. Thankfully, he has you to watch over him. Second, thank you for sharing with me. I am blessed with doctors in the family so I will ask my son about the EECP that you mentioned, as I have not heard of it. Good day dear. Maybe your hubby will rest better tonight.
God Bless!
