May is Mental Health Month

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

Latest Aspirin News Guidelines

Mayo Clinic

There are some important nuances of the guidelines. They don’t apply to people who’ve already had a heart attack or stroke.

Open Heart Surgery – A True Heartcare Story

Open-Heart Surgery survivor“. I am one of the lucky women who had doctors who believed that I was having pains in my heart. At 47 years old heavy breathing, excruciating pain in my chest, ‘unusual fatigue’ – all of that – did not resemble anything most of the doctors I saw would expect from a woman my age. This is the story of many a woman young and old.
