Too Busy For a Heart Attack?

By  | 

I am guilty of not taking time for myself. As moms we are constantly taking care of everyone else and frequently moms put themselves last on the list for almost everything, even our health. We all know the feeling of not having time to be sick. I’ve muscled through many a cold, even strep throat because I felt like I had no other choice. But there are many women who are taking that to heart--literally. I was shocked when I first learned that women often ignore the symptoms of heart attack because we just simply don’t have time to have a heart attack. We don’t slow down enough to even consider the possibility and it’s killing us. One in four women will die of a heart attack. The symptoms for women are different and ignoring them can be a lot more than an inconvenience. Please learn more here with Notesong Srisopark Thompson, BSN, Registered Nurse.
