Patricia' Story

I am 38 years old and I am a very active wife, mother and working woman.  My mother and father both have heart issues. I am careful about the foods I eat because of my parents. I knew that most likely I would have issues, but I thought being more active and eating better than my parents I would be healthy longer. Last week while I was having chest pain and tightness, back pain and a heard time breathing…I thought it was my asthma. I decided to leave work and have my dad take me in. I found out that I had a heart attack the next day. They did a heart cath and placed 2 stents. Thankful they say my heart was not damaged. I have C.A.D. , high cholesterol and high blood pressure.  I am home and making some changes, but it was mostly heredity for me. I have a job that is very physical and i don’t eat fatty foods or use salt. I am over the shock and now I am trying to learn as much as I can so I can watch my children grow up.
