Surprise Attack

In the 2 months since I had a heart attack, I have learned so much that I'd like to share.

First of all- if you think you should call your doctor OR go to an ER- THEN DO IT! Do not second guess this! Our bodies are talking to us and we MUST LISTEN!

All I had was shortness of breath and feeling a little "off". I did have the nagging feeling to see my doctor. So I did just that and my doctor sent me to Henry Ford's ER. There it was- a Myocardial Infarct (heart attack). I am calling this incident my early warning beeper to now get serious about healthy living by focusing on a better diet, supplements, exercise, and a relaxed attitude.

We all know that we need to have our lipid panel with safe and healthy values. Did you know that high LDL, the bad cholesterol is "the leading single cause of death for both women and men"? LDL and Total Cholesterol are lowered by increasing fiber to 25 grams/ day, reducing fats, eliminating saturated and Trans fat, and adding antioxidants. Avery potent antioxidant product Isotonix OPC-3 found ME. In 2 1/2 weeks, my LDL went from 142 to 85!! I am now a rep for this product line and another amazing product that is anti- inflammatory Goji berry juice.

Following the heart attack I attended Cardiac Rehab which I have really enjoyed and appreciated. After a heart attack, it is very common to have twinges in your heart area and to be constantly aware of your heart. Along with this I was also unsure of how much I could do without over doing it. I learned all of this in the classes. Rehab is a series of lectures about all issues of healthy living and cardiac monitored exercise sessions three times a week for approximately 4 to 12 weeks. So when I'd feel a twinge or something that did not feel right while I was on the equipment, I would flag down one of the exercise physiologists to verify that my EKG and my heart rate were OK. This really helped to regain my confidence and get rid of the fear and apprehension. It was also beneficial to talk with the other heart patients about their cardiac related stories.

I am now using a sports beat heart rate monitor while I walk fast and exercise to increase my heart rate at least 30 beats above my resting heart rate for 20 minutes most every day. This allows more blood flow through the heart, fueling the heart tissue with oxygenated blood helping the arteries to expand and contract, and may also create additional arteries on my heart called collaterals (nice word!) Arteries can be brittle from lack of exercise, smoking or high blood pressure and they can get cracks and become injured causing the slightest lesion to be filled with plaque which in my case ruptured, clotted and blocked the artery thus killing the heart tissue that this artery once fed.

I also was told about a trick for stress. I am keeping a stress log and notice what the stress triggers are and then try to defuse it before it snowballs and becomes my whole life. It has been a life changing 2 months.

THANK GOD!-to be continued.

Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means
2 Corinthians 8:11

Letters from our Readers

Hi Peggy Jo, i received upcoming events from philfunsinglesdances he forwarded to me. i am interested in receiving your weekly news letter if you could add me to your list for all up coming singles events.
Hi Peggy Jo,
I really enjoy all the information you include in your newsletter including the more cultural listings such as the Scarab Club that I was a past member for years.
S. .
Dear Peggy Jo,
I have a Son and Daughter in their early to mid 30's. Both are single. They are attractive professionals and are grounded emotionally.

They are both keeping busy with their careers. Most of their peers are married and raising a family. I'm sure they are very aware of this.

You provide an excellent resource for people their parent's age.

> I'm curious, where do people their age go to meet single professionals like themselves? Are their 'singles organizations' for their age group like there are for their parents?
Their proud Father
Ps: Hoping to be a Grandfather one day
Dear C.
Have them check out the Social Connection, Bethany, Metropolitan Professional Singles or Parent Without Partners. I suggwest that they call some of the groups that are listed in the PJSN. Readers please let us know if this is good advice.
Peggy Jo.
Dear Peggy Jo,
Stan's party was last sunday not this sunday as in your newsletter.
A.E. Response: We are now puting the date in each event heading so if we forget to delete the old stuff before we insert the new stuff at least the date will be there.

We apologize for any confusion

Peggy Jo
Dear Peggy Jo,
I too wanted to com to the events listed in your web page. I was particularly interested in the Troy house party and had a dish all prepared but was afraid to come. I had it in the car and I was on the freeway and turned around. I have been widowed for a while and now that I have finished putting my children through U Of M I am ready to meet people of my own age.
G. ps I love your web site and would love to meet with a group at the Fox and Hounds. G. again
Hello Peggy Jo!
Love your news letter full of all the happenings and gatherings! Could you tell me more about your ads? What would it take to place an ad? How long would it run for? E-mail me at

Hi Peggy,
After receiving your Events Newsletter for the past year, I wanted to write you a note to thank you for the effort you put forth in providing so much info to so many. And I enjoyed meeting you at Gayle's 4th of July party!

Please let me make a comment to those people who have a fear about attending an event, particularly for the first time. During my working years, a top engineer had a piece of paper tacked to his wall with these words scribbled on it. "An Expert was once a Beginner."

I think each and every one of us has been a "BEGINNER" at one of these activities. Upon arrival, if you feel "scared" to death, approach someone and say "I've never been here before--------" If nothing else, it's an icebreaker!

And if all else fails, women should keep a deck of cards in their purse, men keep them with your money. And then ask "Does anyone play cards?" In these groups, you'll always find card players.

Nuff said--------now you're on your own. Have fun!

Thanks Peggy Jo!
Hi Peggy... just wanted to thank you for your info---and I do pass it along as I belong to a couple of singles organizations and have made myself a self appointed East side event co ordinator!!

Dear Peggyjo,
I cannot believe that with a vacancy rate of 22.35% in June in the Detroit Metro area we need more empty office and retail space. With one of the highest unemployment rates at 7.1% and burdensome business taxes and personal taxes why would a business want to move to this state?

Greetings to all! Well, I may have retired from teaching, but I haven't retired from life and new experiences.

I have partnered with the direct marketing company Fun Unlimited. I was drawn to the company through a great product--"POWER POPS". These are suckers that taste like real candy, but actually help you to lose weight. They have "Hoodia" ( talked about on Oprah and other shows), which is a major appetite suppressant, and a variety of ingredients that provide energy and contribute to weight loss without any jittery feeling.

There are other great products available as well. But this one is very exciting!! Hollywood stars can be seen with Power Pops and the pops have been featured on Extra.

Check out my website for more info
