We decided to skip the stress test but just in case it had to be done, I went in to talk about it with Dr. Wendy Can’t-Remember-That-Woman’s-Last-Name this afternoon. She is forwarding me to Cardio Man. I won’t bore you with the details or the resolutions to better health. Suffice to say I’ve had my wake up call. I’ll be dieting and exercising, period.
She asked me if I was stressed enough to call this yet another anxiety attack. “Only when I watch the news.”
Speaking of, go visit the new post on Politics & Religion, for a toxic mix that can result when the two collide and politics wins.
