Me and my friend were walking home one day from school.
When I got a call from my mom telling me that she and my dad went to our doctor, because my dad had chest pain, shortness of breath, he also had pain in his upper abdomen and back.
My mom told me he has Heart disease. This means that he is going to have to watch what he eats and he is going to have to work out daily and keep track of his stress level, cholesterol level, and his blood pressure. He will be getting a medication called ACE Inhibitors to help his blood flow. But he will always have it.
I am going to have to be careful too, this is because it runs in the family, so I am going to have to keep a healthy weight and eat a healthy diet to prevent it from happening to me.
Katy, This is a disease that is not like flu or a cold. If I were to hug you, you would not get it. If I do not take care of myself I could have a heart attack or a stroke. I also should stay away from eating food that is bad form me, drinking and smoking to help prevent these things from happing.
This is not a joke think about your future, and take action help yourself or a family member to prevent heart diseases.
This could of happened because I did not keep a healthy weight, it runs in the family and I was not careful, drinking, or smoking.
