Totally agree with Alan CD. From my own experience....I am 46. I had a crap couple of years that ended in a mild heart attack last June. Prior to that point I thought "didnt give a toss if I died or not"
That changed though when I was sat in hospital and knew I had heart attack but did not know how serious. Realised I was scared and was not actually wanting to die when it came down to it for all my talk. Anyway had a stent fitted to open artery went to cardio rehab for a few months and did what I was told. Was worried at times especially in the night sat on my own. Getting towards a year later I have lost weight, take tablets as perscribed, go to gym as often as I can And generally feel fitter than what I have done in years. But as important It changed my attitude to life. Not in a bucket list type of way, I will never be a sky diver love my TV too much, but in that my depression is alot better and I do not worry as much about the stupid things and stupid people in life. It was a warning to me and I look at it in a positive way what happened. Believe me, I am not normally a positive person by any means as well. I dont want any of this to sound like a lecture as I am the last person to give one. Please take care.
Ned, ye daft old sod!
I'm not having any of this, mate.
Seriously though, there's not a lot I can say other than to echo what others have said, Steve and Bob's posts especially.
You know where I am if you want a chat or anything.
Chin up, old boy and take it easy.
