    That was hard with my Dad, he lived with us for 6 months before he passed, that is when I quit buying anything that was store made if at all possible. And searching the packages (he loved pickles ketchup chips ) for no salt was a real pita. He would eat jars of bread and butter pickles, with salt, until I took over lol.

    The stores sure could help having items better marked no salt low sugar etc. It seems now they are better about marking them, some of them lol.

    We bought a salt grinder when we first married, 5 yrs ago, it is still 1/2 full, that is the amount of salt we use, very little. Honeys pressure readings have been great for years now.

    Too much salt isn't good for anyone. They put it and sugar into everything. Hope you start feeling better John. So hope the nurse said this is all a process of getting through these symptoms and then things will improve.

    This is not a good morning either. Woke up already with some shortness of breath. But at least I have a doctor's appointment this morning to get it checked out.

    Shortness of breath seems to be getting better. I've started exercising more. First, one lap around a small park, then 2 laps. Now on treadmill, first 15, now 20 mins. But I think stress is setting me back.

    A couple of weeks I had a major episode where I had a dream where I got so angry that when I woke up I was still thrashing around in anger. Then today, I got into a bad argument with my wife that I told her I didn't want to argue, but she insisted and it turned into a full scale argument. Maybe she's trying to kill me, lol. I'm feeling a lot of poking (not pain) around my chest area.

    Darn John maybe you need to do yoga, meditation or something like that. When I spend time out in the yard or working on the pond, my blood pressure goes down to 111/65 , it is never high, but it drops to optimal, the calming effect of nature.

    You think that was a bad argument, wait till she reads this. :mad:

    Perhaps you should get a note from your doctor saying you aren't allowed to argue, then you can produce it anytime it feels like you are losing an argument. ;)

    No joking matter, after my argument I feel like all the progress has gone and I'm back to before my MI. I'm not even sure that's possible since build up takes time but I've definitely got some on and off pressure both in the middle of my chest and on the right, burping and a weird taste in my esophagus once in a while.

    Gosh John no more arguing. Stress not good. Doc said so. Like Maria said could be some kind of digestive disorder going on now. I had a problem w/ food feeling like it was stuck in my throat and could not swallow it. They had to stretch my esophagus. Now much better but say it can happen again which would mean I would have to have it stretched again.
