Hmmm :-/ So a little scary... went to emergency room this morning cause i thought i was having a heart attack. Had some tight/heavy feeling in my chest, short of breath etc. Was very scary. Im all clear, wasnt a heart attack, but is a viral infection round my heart :( Heart disease, high blood pressure and blood clots run in my family so ill be checking myself out and taking more notice of this.

The Dr was very happy to note that today was the big month anniversary since giving up smoking, was very proud. Knowing this affects me is another huge reason to ensure that i kick the habit, was very scary to think at 25 something like that could have happened, thank God it was a false alarm.

Health is such an important aspect of our every day lives and it doesnt just affect us it affects the people around us and thats all i thought about when i thought i was in for the worst.

Hope everyone is doing amazing out there, i know we can stick to this because we have made it this far.
