This is something all women should think about.  Five years ago the day my husband turned 50 and we were contemplating our age...I went to the hospital with chest pains.  After 3 days of tests and an angiogram, I was diagnosed with angina.  Because my heart rate and blood pressure was regularly so low, I could not be put on heart medications as they lower blood pressure.  My cardiologist said that the risk for me was for my heart to just stop.  Well, I had been sick and bedridden with fibromyalgia for about 10 years and this was the last straw.  I wanted to see my children find love and discover their gifts, I wanted to see my grandchildren born and the way things were going, it wasn't going to happen.  I got to work researching and reading everything I could get my hands on.  
A five minute interview with a Dr. Hotze on a morning show got me researching thyroid issues and how it relates to the heart.  His book gave me my life back ("Hormones, Health and Happiness") and  now I no longer suffer from fybromyalgia or depression or angina or anemia and all the other stupid things that were keeping me from living life to the fullest.  Here I am now with a grandson and another grandchild on the way watching my children grown and finding their way in the world, married to the man I've loved for  35 years still having adventures together.  
Life goes by too fast, this is why I blog now.  I want to share what I am learning with other people and my family especially the biggest lesson - that it's never to late to LIVE!
