Political Rant – Pre-Existing Conditions not covered?

Every now and then I have to go into one of my Rants about the callous stupidity of our nations politicians.

This is one of those rants about these heartless and cruel politicians and their attempt at splitting people with Pre-Existing Medical Conditions away from the rest of the population, essentially condemning them to eventual poverty and becoming second class citizens, with health problems that will often lead to the depletion of any saving they have or worse, their deaths.

Diabetes, The Facts explained simply for everyone.

My Best Cheeseburger! Ever!

OK, as a Diabetic, (Type-2 Diabetic that is) I often get a little frustrated with having to explain why I can’t have that slice of Pecan Pie, or that large piece of Red Velvet Cake covered with several scoops of Ice Cream, etc.

Signs of a Heart Attack, for Men and Women

human_heart_01 OK, this post is important to everyone.

One of the major killers of Men and Women is the dreaded Heart Attack.

I was sorting through the daily mail, at home,the other day and I found an advertisement that had a Fridge magnet attached to it.

The magnet was a simple thing that listed the most Common signs that a person might be having a heart attack. The interesting thing was that there were significant differences between several of the Men’s symptoms and Women’s symptoms.

I did a little research on this and I thought that I should share this difference with the rest of the world.

Below is a table listing these most Common Symptoms of a Heart Attack for both Men and Women.

SYMPTOM
MEN
WOMEN
Pain in one or both Arms, Neck, Jaw, Back or Stomach

X
Uncomfortable Pressure, Fullness, Pain or Discomfort in the chest

I suggest that you might want to print this little table and tape it onto your own Fridge door. Just In Case!

Who knows, it could save your life.
