HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN YOU ARE ALONE??


Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital. Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!! A cardiologist says If everyone who sees this post shares it to 10 people, you can bet that we’ll save at least one life. Rather than sharing jokes only please contribute by forwarding this info which can save a person’s life..

85

85!  Two of my most visited sites are my descriptions, “About Me”.  That surprises me.  It also surprises me that I have reached the age of 85.  I never expected that to happen.  I never thought I would live long enough to get Social Security benefits.  But I was wrong and here I am still active, still involved, still interested in almost everything, still expressing my thoughts and feelings.

My birthday was yesterday.  My 2 daughters spent the day with me.  I had requested no party nor anything special and they complied.  It was a wonderful day.  We had lunch which I provided and then my favorite dinner, sushi with plum wine.  Awesome!

My oldest daughter, Circe, spent several hours helping her sister with promotional advice for her online shops.  Jennifer has been unemployed for more than a year sending out hundreds of resumes and going on multiple interviews without success.  She is a talented and accomplished graphic artist and an industrious employee, but has not been able to snag a job.  My oldest daughter, Circe, sat down with her and gave her the benefits of her experience with computer promotion.  I think that her advice will help in promoting her sister in her job search as well as the many other online sites Jennifer has going.

I sat in on this learning experience and found that there were a few things I could do to help my situation.  My Etsy site is my source for extra income as well as the satisfaction I get from the sales I make.  My handcrafted jewelry is diverse as well as colorful and unique.  When I make a piece of jewelry I imagine who will wear it and at what place, her job, a party, or just for fun.  My jewelry covers all sorts of possibilities.  Some pieces are dramatic, some simple, most are brilliantly colorful, some for evening wear, some for casual wear, but all are original designs.  I tend to like the dramatic items best.  Most of my time is spent on the design, putting the beads together to best show off their beauty.  You can see what I have made at http://www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu

At this awesome age of 85 I intend to make the most of what time I have left.  I’m not sure what that means, but I will figure it out as I go.

Thought for the day

This is GOOD!!!

Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every conceivable deficiency

of the modern world, real or imaginary. We know we take responsibility for all

we have done and do not blame others.

 HOWEVER, upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was NOT

the senior citizens who took

The melody out of music,

The pride out of appearance,

The courtesy out of driving,

The romance out of love,

The commitment out of marriage,

The responsibility out of parenthood,

The togetherness out of the family,

The learning out of education,

The service out of patriotism,

The Golden Rule from rulers,

The nativity scene out of cities,

The civility out of behavior,

The refinement out of language,

The dedication out of employment,

The prudence out of spending,

The ambition out of achievement or

God out of government and school.

And we certainly are NOT the ones who eliminated patience

and tolerance from personal relationships and interactions

with others!!

And, we do understand the meaning of patriotism, and

remember those who have fought and died for our country.

Just look at the Seniors with tears in their eyes and pride in

their hearts as they stand at attention with their hand over

their hearts!

 

YES, I’M A SENIOR CITIZEN!

I’m the life of the party….. even if it only lasts until 8 p.m.

I’m very good at opening childproof caps….. with a hammer.

I’m awake many hours before my body allows me to get up.

I’m smiling all the time because I can’t hear a thing you’re

saying.

I’m sure everything I can’t find is in a safe, secure place,

somewhere.

I’m wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that’s just my left leg.

I’m beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.

Yes, I’m a SENIOR CITIZEN and I think I am having the time

of my life!

Now if I could only remember who I may have sent this to

before, I wouldn’t be re-sending it to them now.

Spread the laughter, share the cheer, let’s be happy

while we’re here.

And, MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA AND MAY AMERICA BLESS

GOD!!!
