Here's Another Way to Wear Persper-eez

We’ve heard from a couple of women that they are attaching the pads directly to their bra, laying the bra down on a flat surface and attaching the pads on the bottom edge of the bra, then putting it on. Let us know if you’ve tried it too. info@persper-eez.com.

A Day in the Life of Your Heart

heart

It’s a lovely summer morning. You slept well, had a leisurely walk with the dog, chatted with a neighbor, enjoyed a bowl of yogurt topped with fresh picked blueberries. The only thing bothering you is an odd pain in your left shoulder. Again, you roll the shoulder a few times to try to loosen it. Must have slept on it wrong.

Relaxing on the deck with a cup of coffee, you mentally review the day’s plans. Finish cleaning out the linen closet. Deliver two bags of items to the Salvation Army. Lunch with your daughter and adorable granddaughter. The shoulder pain seems to have inched across your upper back so you roll your head and stretch your arms up, wiggling your fingers.

Time to finish that closet. Upstairs, radio playing quietly in the background, you’re happy to finish this project. How many towels and sheet sets do two people need? Wiping the sweat from your forehead, indigestion makes you pause and press a hand against your chest. Maybe too much coffee? Ah, probably last night’s dinner.

As you turn to put the last few towels away, you catch yourself against the door. Whoa, a bit light-headed. You scold yourself for moving too fast and wait a moment to let the dizziness pass, then step back to admire the now-neat closet.

Heartburn replaces the indigestion and you pop two antacid pills into your mouth before dragging the bag of linens downstairs. The light sweat of earlier is now more like a cold sweat. Odd. You roll both shoulders to get rid of the pain and head downstairs to move the clothes to the washer. It’s just one load but you’re exhausted, even a little nauseous.

Maybe it’s the flu. Or maybe you haven’t eaten enough today. You decide to rest a bit to catch your breath, and settle into the easy chair for a few minutes of TV. At only 52, a few household chores shouldn’t be so exhausting.

Your stomach seems to settle down as you rest, although the heartburn still rages. A glance at the clock reminds you there isn’t much time to get to the restaurant. You collect your purse and car keys, popping two more antacids on your way to the car.

The restaurant isn’t far, thankfully. Your arms feel like lead as you drive the short distance. The nausea returns, as does the lightheadedness, and you rest for a moment in the car, eyes closed. Maybe a glass of iced tea will settle things down, then it will be home for a nap so you’ll feel better for movie night with your husband.

Forcing yourself out of the car, you wave at your daughter where they’re waiting outside the restaurant. As you approach, your granddaughter runs toward you and throws her arms around your legs, setting you off-balance. You manage to stop your fall by grabbing a nearby handrail but end up lowering to sit on the step as the last of your energy fades. Whatever this bug is, it came on fast.

Your daughter is at your side, asking if you’re all right, saying you don’t look so good. You try to brush it off even as you press your hand against the ache across your chest. Let me rest a moment, you tell her, and close your eyes to ward off the dizziness. There are people talking around you but you’re too tired to even listen. Maybe your daughter could drive you home. You can get the car later, after a nap.

Suddenly there’s a buzz of activity and a pleasant male voice asks how you’re feeling. You open your eyes to see an ambulance parked in front of you. Why are so many people looking at you? Alot of attention has always given you a heart attack.

Wait. What? They think it actually IS a heart attack? But you’re too young. You aren’t exactly athletic but you enjoy getting outside every day. You eat well, even lost five pounds. No, it’s just the flu. It doesn’t matter if that’s what women always say. In your case, it’s true. There’s no crushing pain in your chest or jaw, you didn’t fall to the floor unconscious.

"Mom.” Your daughter’s face is pale, tears trickling down her face. She clutches your granddaughter as they squat before you. “Stop arguing. You’re having a heart attack, and they’re taking you to the hospital. I’ll see you there in a bit.” She smiles, sort of. “Now behave.”

You’ve always behaved. That’s why it can’t possibly be a heart attack. That happens to people who are overweight, never exercise, eat junk food, and smoke. You aren’t the heart attack type. Right?

According to the American Heart Association, “though heart disease is the No. 1 killer of womenin the United States, women often chalk up the symptoms to less life-threatening conditions like acid reflux, the flu, or normal aging."

American Heart Association: Heart Attack Signs in Women

1. Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest. It lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back.

2. Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.

3. Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort.

4. Other signs such as breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.

5. As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other commonsymptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain.

If you have any of these signs, call 9-1-1 and get to a hospital right away.

The Center for Disease Control suggests the following to reduce your chances of getting heart disease:

• Know your blood pressure. High blood pressure has no symptoms so it’s important to have your blood pressure checked regularly.
• Get tested for diabetes. Uncontrolled diabetes raises your chances of heart disease.
Quit smoking.
• Have your cholesterol and triglycerides checked.
• Make healthy food choices.
Limit alcohol.
Lower your stress level.
