"I’ve always been that guy on the job who can lift the heaviest boxes and go the longest without a break. But since I had a heart scare, I've been treated like an old man by my co-workers.
I was always the one that everyone came to when they needed someone to grab one end of a large container. But that hasn't happened for the last few months, which leaves me feeling like I'm only going through the motions.
In fact, people started to help ME move crates and boxes on job sites, began to offer me more breaks than everyone else, and were always asking if I needed water or wanted to sit for a few. That might sound like the ideal scenario to some of you, but to me, it felt like failure. That's why I discovered Heart Beat 911 before I fell into some serious depression and lack of self-esteem.
Once my energy levels returned and I no longer got dizzy spells from blood pressure spikes, things got back to normal. My crew were all actually wondering what turned things around for me, when just a few months ago I was complaining about how my BP meds didn't work and only seemed to make me more tired. I couldn't help but share my good find!"
