SIDELINE OBSERVATIONS: Join me on Team Good Health

Published: Friday, November 30, 2012 at 05:47 PM.

The doctors ran countless tests trying to determine if I indeed had a cardiac event and treated me with multiple drugs just in case I had something going on with my heart they might have missed.

Thankfully, I passed all the tests — this time.

When they said I needed to take a stress test, I wanted to know if it would be anything like sitting in the back seat of my car on a football Friday night trying to file a 400-word story on deadline.

My joke got the desired laugh, but I know my health isn’t a laughing matter.

The list of my health issues seems to grow longer with each passing year.

I’m 54 years old and more than 100 pounds overweight. The extra weight is likely a direct cause of my high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Type II Diabetes and sleep apnea. I’m almost afraid to find out what else might be wrong with me that I don’t know about.

I’m the only one to blame for allowing myself to get in this condition.
