Heart & Lung Probs-Does Anyone Have Nightmares?

Heart & Lung Probs-Does Anyone Have Nightmares?

I'll be 60 this year. Had first heart attack at 34 and have had six more since. Several stents and one triple bypass.

Each heart attack and each pulmonary trip to the hospital have scared me so bad I literally thought I was going to die--each… read more
