I'd like to talk with someone who has honest to God had a heart attack from stress. Can you describe what kind of events were happening in your life? Did you know you were at risk? Did you do anything to try prevent it?
I am so overwhelmed right now with family problems, financial worries, and a nagging health issue (need surgery for torn ligament) that I am concerned about my heart. I'm in my late 40's and in decent enough health with no real serious issues like diabetes or anything that I know of. A friend lost one of her adult children in an accident yesterday and I experienced some pain in my chest and back while I was at her home trying to help out. It occured to me that I could have a heart attack if I am not careful. Do you have any advice?
