HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE
Let’s say it’s 6.15pm and you’re going home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself..!!
NOW HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE…
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.
A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating.
The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can perhaps buy precious time to get themselves to a phone and dial 911.

i came into this world covered in someone else’s blood and screaming and lemme tell you i’m not afraid to leave it the same way
Dear Mr. President,
This is not a political letter. It’s not an attempt to attack what you’ve done wrong or praise what you’ve done right. It’s not a way to give you pointers, advice or tell you how much better you could do. I don’t have a brilliant idea on how to improve the economy, reduce pollution or lower the price of oil. How I vote, how liberal or conservative I am and my opinion on politics are all completely irrelevant.
You don’t know me and it’s a pretty safe bet that you’ll never even hear my name. I’m an everyday American. Just another face in the crowd. I’ve grown up knowing I could be anything I dreamed of. I still believe Sunday is for church and Monday night is for football. I don’t believe freedom of speech should be viewed as an invitation to be disrespectful, rude or mean. I’ve stood in awe in front of the Declaration of Independence, Gettysburg and the Vietnam Memorial. I vote. I don’t litter and I’ve donated blood. I cover my heart when I hear the Star Spangled Banner. I understand that Thanksgiving is about a lot more than turkey and Memorial Day is a lot more than barbecues. I have a husband, three kids, two dogs and a cat. As I said, an everyday American.
In our house, you are more than just the President. You are, also, the “Big Boss”. Every day, my husband laces up his boots and is proudly ”Army Strong”. He works hard, serves with pride and has mastered the art of carrying on. You also do not know him and it’s a pretty safe bet you’ll never hear his name, either. He’s a good one but I know he’s only one of thousands. You can’t be expected to know even a fraction of them. Believe me though when I say, he’s a great one to have on your team.
He’ll go where you tell him, when you tell him. He’ll do the job you ask and he’ll only come home when you let him. He’ll do his best, he’s not built to do it any other way. I won’t ever ask you not to make him go. It will break my heart when he does but it’s his job. I won’t ask for more time, a better assignment or a different location. After all, it’s what he chooses to do and following him is what I choose to do.
This letter really isn’t about the dedication of my husband, though. I’m writing you to ask a favor of you. Every night, I pray for wisdom, knowledge and guidance for you. I pray that God guides you as you guide our country. All I’m asking from you, is that you pray for strength, courage and safety for him (and the thousands of others like him). In your position, I understand that they are “The Troops” but believe me, they are much more than that to those who love them. Please don’t forget that and pray for them just as I pray for you.

I’m back (:
So I had a colonoscopy today, and had a lovely back-and-forth with one of the nurses
- Nurse: Hi, I'm Myrtle the Magnificent.
- Me: Wait, what? Like a magician or something?
- Nurse: That's right!
- Me: And for your first trick... You're gonna make the scope disappear, aren't you?
- Nurse: Exactly! But do you know where it's gonna disappear to?!
- Me: Is it my butt?
- Nurse: It's your butt!
- Me: I don't like this trick.
- Nurse: No one likes this trick.
I hate it when you finally accept one of your insecurities and then someone makes a harsh, unneeded comment about it and it puts you right back to square one.
