This past weekend, I thought I was having a heart attack. My heart was thudding in my chest up to 125 beats a minute, my jaw hurt, I felt dizzy – and that was all while I was lying in bed. I didn’t go to emergency until the next day (after the chemist sent me to a doctor who sent me to emergency). People say a lot of crap about public medical, but they had me through an EKG, x-ray and in a bed with an IV in my arm in no time.
They gave me something to put under my tongue to take care of the chest pain. The fact the little pill worked implied that something was, in fact, wrong with my heart, but all the tests came back clean but for one that implied I had a virus of some sort running amok.
I got to go home the same day and am scheduled for more than a few ‘fun’ tests to assess whether there’s actually anything wrong with my ticker.
So that’s what I’ve been up to. Not that you came here to read what I’ve been up to. Time for a zine review!
