    I know what you are thinking, I'm thinking that too, It's just such a big thing, My heart has been kind of messed up since birth. I keep hoping it's a phase. Sometimes these kinds of things happen.

    But a couple of days ago when it started, there were some alarming symptoms The pain went down my arm, My left eye was, Well, It's hard to explain, There was like a clenching feeling in it. and for brief moments, profound confusion that was directly associated with the pain as it struck.

    Don't get me wrong. Yeah, I'm scared, but, To go to the hospital would only be a formality Like 75 percent of my heart is dead, has been since my teens. There is no surgery or medicine they can really give me. So to go to the hospital would be more like a choice. if something happens, does it happen at home in comfort or does it happen at a hospital? Maybe it's like several of the other phases I've had over the years. perhaps it will be when it's all said and done. These kinds of things aren't uncommon for me.

    But, I never talk about these kinds of things because everyone is always like, Shadow, Go to the hospital. The thing is, Truthfully, The nearest hospital to me is thirty miles away. and it's not the kind of hospital that could help someone with my condition. which means they would have to fly me out to Bowling green. and even at bowling green, Their solution would be. Well, Darren, You have known this was coming for a long time, There isn't much we can do but put you to sleep in a medical coma so you don't experience this. That's the worst case scenario though.

    If it would just stop hurting and go back to normal, That would be the best case scenario.

    I know people think that hospitals have all the answers and they have all the solutions, But sometimes, They tell people that their condition is beyond their capability to treat and the only solution is to take it as it comes.

    if it was something simple like artery blockage or just a damaged valve, they could work with that, But, With 75 percent of it dead, They won't even dare to mess with it. If the time came that I was really facing the end, They would suggest medical coma.

    I think I'll pass on that.

    So ultimately, it's just a waiting and see kind of thing, If I thought going to the hospital could help me, I'd go.

    After a couple of hours of sleep, It's eased off some. Gee whiz though. it's complicated to tell anymore if it's legitimate chest pains or just pains from stomach issues I had off and on last year. oh well, Pain is part of life, I feel the pain so I must be alive, That's pretty sound logic I suppose.

    Jesus Christ: go to the doctor man. More information is always better than waiting around and worrying yourself sick. Find out wtf is going on. If it's something minor like acid reflux then you'll be relieved and they can straighten you out right away. And if it's life-threatening then they can act to save your life.

    Sitting around waiting for it to get better or to go away is how people end up dead. On Monday I found out that my mother had a lump in her breast for two years and did nothing about it, and now it'll be a miracle if I can save her because it's probably metastasized by now.

    Don't make that kind of mistake.

    You are right, I think I'll go to the doctor today, I dread doctors. But, you are right, I need to get this checked out. If I find anything out today, I'll report back here.

    I slept, And I went to d.r Tony, He has been my doctor for years, I trust him, There wasn't much he could do today, He set me up an appointment to Graves and gilbert heart clinic, They are going to run a dye test to look for blockage. For this, I have no worries, Even if there is a blockage, They can now install stents in a half hour through the wrist.

    We will see how all of this plays out, my appointment is Wednesday. #Feeling better Zero Worries.

    Thank effing god. If you dodge a heart attack through sensible consultation and the ingenuity of modern medicine, then I'm logging that as a +1 in the Win Column ;

    You might want to get this checked out.

    If you get a pain again take 325 mg of asprin and chew it (that is the official recommendation for someone worried about a heart attack).

    When I get a pain in my chest I check to see what just got embedded in it, as a first step.
