- Hey everyone…I am okay! I had a “cardiac incident” today about 10am. I was standing in my living room talking to Nicole Sanders who had come over to drop off some stuff when all of a sudden it felt like I was being stabbed in the chest. On a scale of 1-10 it was a 20! I ended up at the ER and when I got here they immediately took multiple EKGs as I told my story 20 different times. As some of you know, I have been under extraordinary stress these last several months. The ER folks went to work right away.I did not have a heart attack but my father died from heart disease at a young age so I am at risk. Add to that being a post menopausal, black woman and S-T-R-E-S-S!! I am here at the hospital until Tuesday morning when I will have a stress test (they don’t do the test on the holiday so at least some folks will have a good time this Memorial Day 😑). In the meantime I am going to rest, something i have been neglecting.Let me say this to my women friends and followers: I didn’t want to go the the hospital because I was worried about family and expense and blah blah blah. You know what makes that stuff disappear? DYING! And I was not going out like that today!Please pay attention to your bodies. Get enough rest. Know your family history and live accordingly. If you are smoking or drinking too much, reign that shit in. If you are carrying around too much body fat, be real with yourself about it and get it under control. And please exercise regularly! TAKE YOUR HEALTH SERIOUSLY!I’m going to log off now and watch a movie and get a decent night’s rest as the poking and prodding starts early tomorrow. I’ll leave you with this picture of the bracelet the ER doc put on me.NEVER GIVE UP!#GoodEnoughMother #blackwomen #WomensHealth #blackwomenshealth
- YAY! #fordhamuniversity #momlife #goodenoughmother
- I have a lot to say about what has happened to me over the last 48 hours. I will explain more later once I get my thoughts together.. but for now, this:If you are being reckless with your health.. if you have habits you know are shortening your life or will impact the quality of it, I have one question.. WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Get your shit together.. NOW! #womenshealth #blackfitness #momlife
- It’s was a long, tough road but we in this place! Congrats @caseyaparham for sticking it out and for straight A’s this last semester! ️️️#fordhamuniversity #collegegraduation #momlife #goodenoughmother
