  1. Thanks for coming to Heartboard. It may not be the busiest board on the internet but there is some great information here. Kalip is great at finding very useful info. Tell us a little about yourself and maybe he can find something to help you. I remember when this board was hopping but like most boards full of sick people we have lost a lot. Drop in just so we know you are still around. As for me I have been here since day 1. I am 62 from Central Texas with a list full of medical problems. I just live day to day and keep on going. This place has helped bunches. Later.

  2. 5 Ways to Make 2021 Your Reset Year There seems to be a general feeling, heard from all sides, that the post-COVID world needs a reset. The pandemic imposed new and drastic stresses in people’s lives. The need to cooperate was brought into high relief, and the rise in areas like depression, anxiety, and domestic violence was symptomatic of a society pushed to its limits and beyond. No one escaped the negative effects of the pandemic, but was there a lesson to take away that can actually reset your life? For a moment, set aside the temptation to think that it only takes mass vaccinati

  5. Never Ignore These 11 Heart Symptoms If something went wrong with your heart, would you know it? Not all heart problems come with clear warning signs. There is not always an alarming chest clutch followed by a fall to the floor like you see in movies. Some heart symptoms don’t even happen in your chest, and it’s not always easy to tell what’s going on. "If you're not sure, get it checked out," says Charles Chambers, MD, director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Penn State Hershey Heart and Vascular Institute. That’s especially true if you are 60 or older, are ov

  8. Prediabetes May Harm Your Brain "Prediabetes" -- where blood sugar levels are high but not yet tipped over into full-blown diabetes -- may pose a threat to brain health, new British research suggests. "As an observational study, it cannot prove higher blood sugar levels cause worsening brain health. However, we believe there is a potential connection that needs to be investigated further," said study lead author Victoria Garfield. She's at the Institute of Cardiovascular Science and MRC Unit for Lifelong Health and Aging, at University College London. In their research, Garfiel

  10. I have suffered social anxiety all my life until a few years ago, to the point that I never even went out at night in my twenties. The answer to improving mental health is looking into yourself, identifying your fears, and then exposing yourself to them little by little. In time you stop acting awkwardly in regards to your trigger whatever it may be, your looks, your weight, your hair color, your smile, your race, your social status, etc. I hope you guys are still faring well this 2021.

  13. Blood Pressure Often Differs Widely Between Arms Blood pressure readings between the two arms can be different, and that disparity can sometimes be a warning sign of heart trouble down the road. That's the finding of an analysis of 24 past studies: When people have at least a 5-point difference in blood pressure between the two arms, their risk of heart attack, stroke or premature death inches up. And the greater the difference, the more those risks climb. Experts said the findings give more support to something that's been advocated, but not commonly done by doctors and

This protective vitamin prevents calcium build-up in artery walls, improving cardiovascular health.

  17. No advice, but from me some empathy. As a mostly retired part time dog walker, I have very little contact with humans on a daily basis. I do try to keep up with my weight training and other exercise, just in case there might be life on the other side of this mess. I have my dog to keep me busy, as well as the other dogs for whom I take care. We have the beach, which changes daily, in terms of just watching nature, the waves, the seaweed or lack thereof, the pelicans, the dogs playing. I read books, and always have a few books which I have not yet read from which to choose whenever I finish one

  29. I don't really feel unsafe leaving the house but I don't get out much. I had an old family friend die the other day and his funeral was today. I decided I just couldn't go and be around so many people. If I get covid I doubt if I will make it but I don't let it rule my life. I have severe COPD, Diabetes and vascular problems. I try to use common sense when I do go out. I wear my mask and try to social distance. I still go to Walmart or the grocery store. I took my wife to doctors appointment. She had major spinal surgery 3 weeks ago and can't drive. I go to doctor tomorrow. I don't get out as
