For the second quarter of the year we’re focusing on getting older. April’s Vlogs are all about embracing and celebrating milestones as we age. This week we’re looking at why, for gay seniors, health is paramount. This is based on a health crisis that I’m currently experiencing.
Here’s what I covered in the Vlog:
In spite of being healthy and fit, or so I thought. I had a heart attack on April 14th.
Now, I do have a history of smoking so that has to be considered. But, genetics were a significant contributor.
The scary thing is that there were no signs before the event. Even while it was happening my only symptom was chest pain.
I’m sharing this for a couple of reason. First because it’s important for everyone to take any possible acute health concern seriously.
Secondly, because for obvious reasons I’ll be taking a break from social for a while.
Of course, serious health issues can happen at any time.
But, as we move into our later years these concerns become more likely and possibly much more serious.
The message, pay attention to your heath, and your symptoms. Seeking medical attention early will always serve you best.
I’ll be taking the next 6 weeks or so off from social media and other day to day business activities to recover and heal.
I look forward to being back with all of you in June.
Remember that your life is far from over. So, hopefully with more options, keep living it on your own terms.
