    I still liked the one where I told Jimbo, that their was a big rise on identity theft because the dead people were stealing identities. ;) Not exactly what I meant, but it is exactly how it came out. You wonder why their are editors, eh.

    *I think we need a blooper section. ;)

    Cass, can I help you get well? :) lol.

    Can you do more squats or more pushups? My bottom half has always been stronger than my top half, and my arms tire easily when working overhead. Thus, the heart attack I experienced was a blockage in some small arteries behind the heart ... and somehow, all of that is related!

    Let's just say that I have never been able to do a pushup.

    I have very strong legs. But I also can do tons of push-ups. Pull ups on the other hand forget about it.

    Hey, I am so excited I just got back from getting a new parttime job to help make ends meet. It is kind of funny because the lady said, " any chance you are going to wear any of these clothes here?"

    HA. Not on your life. They sell maternity wear! :)

    Can a woman answer this, too? I lift weights so, I have a stronger upper body and arms. But, I ride a bike and use a treadmill, too.
    I think... how it might all be related is the way, the blood is able to flow through your arms and legs due to oxygen.

    Blood flow is certainly the issue, and I was surprised to learn "a heart attack" is not caused by something being wrong with one's heart. Rather, it is "an attack on the heart" ... and the problem stems from the circulatory "plumbing" around or even near the heart, and some of us seem to have poor plumbing in that area. In my own case, just holding my arms above my shoulders for several seconds is somehow enough to reduce or restrict the flow of blood to my heart and cause a shortness of breath and angina (chest pain). I really know very little here, but I do know keeping our plumbing cleared out -- read: radical diet change -- can be a life-or-death matter.

    You are very right Joe, no doubt about that. The analogy is really on the money.

    Well, of course! Cars and computers cost money and have resale values!

    We find "inside the box" more comfortable.

    I sometimes suspect that can have an even greater impact.

    Squatting or even sitting and bending over to do work in that kind of position also causes me trouble ... but if I then stand erect and stretch my shoulders and arms back to expand my chest, the pain usually goes away quickly.

    That is exactly what I was told regarding my husband. Exactly. I never knew it either.

    Yes, I have a voluntary one coming up in about a month. I failed the last one about six months ago and refused more "band-aid" angioplasty, so this one will tell whether I have made any real progress via the diet-and-exercise department!

    I really do love your comparision of plumbing and the heart, it works for me, so, I am going to ask you, you are on draino right? :) or that foaming stuff, not that copper sulfate, lol, but the good stuff. They got good stuff out now for draining the veins Joe. Cass is on one, too.

    Cass is right too, men are hardheaded, so keep that apt. :)

    Grapefruit pectin, and I have experimented a bit with chelation.

    Please enlighten me! I have read books and looked around a lot, and I have yet to hear of any medication for actually cleaning existing blockages in arteries or veins.

    You bet!
