There is a God

Had a chest pain and some palpitations last week after hanging a new curtain up ( always was a job I hated ), although I suspect it may have had something to do with hitting a few too many golf balls at the driving range as well! Anyway, as a precaution, the doc has arranged for an ECG, although gentle golf is allowed - thus, the title of this thread ;-)

Seriously though, I have decided it's time to stop caring as much in trying to keep everybody happy. Hopefully, it's just a wake up call. I've always been pretty fit before, so I hope people reading this will take note and find ways to let go more, if need be.

Re: There is a God

Thank you, although  I'm sure it'll be alright. The irony of it is I've lost 3/4 of  stone in the last nine months to prevent this sort of thing from happening...still, it may have been much worse otherwise.

Re: There is a God

I hope all is well Hillary.

I have often wondered after spending many hrs in a car that Driving Instructors may well have a greater chance of Deep Vein Thrombosis.

We don't have the most healthy occupation in the world do we?

Re: There is a God

No, I don't think we do and weight gain seems to be a hazard of the job. Perhaps this should be covered in the ADI exams and courses.

Re: There is a God

It is not just DVT and weight. After 40 years of mostly sitting on the left hand side of my car I developed cataracts  in both eyes. The left eye was affected first by about 12 months. We know we should protect the eyes from UV. The doctors reminded me of that at the hospital. I have had the ops, vision is better than it ever has been. As they say on Hillstreet blues, "let's be careful out there".

Re: There is a God

Glad to hear it worked, Alan. must admit, that's the first time I've heard of it being a a hazard of the trade.

Re: There is a God

Hi Hilary, I think anybody who spends time in the sun should try to avoid excessive exposure to UV. Unless a pupil wishes otherwise I always keep the sun visors down to cut down on glare from the sky. Bonus is that the headlining in my car is all the same colour. No white bits where the visors protected the headlining.

Re: There is a God

Hi Hilary, I hope you are well and positive about it all. Just got it in time and keep up the good work.  I could not live without being fit, need to move.  Off now to do my usually run and circuit training.  Just as a motivational story, in my circuit training group we have Alan who's 80. He started to run marathons at the age of 50.  He can't run now due to his knees being operated on but does speed walking.  We also have Roger who is 70. He actually does longer distances and runs faster then me on the long runs.  They are my inspiration! If you want to get fit you can but it does require THE WILL to GET GOING. Mind over matter!

Re: There is a God

Yes, I agree, Mon and I do quite a lot of walking ( countrywise ). The weight is coming off quite nicely now and I'm doing the golf ( perhpas a little bit too much - who knows? ) ;-)

Would you believe I actually had a heart check at the doctors just 2 weeks ago and was told I had an 8% chance of having a heart attack, all things considered.

I shall take this as a warning not to get worked up about things.

Thanks again for your response.

Hilary
