Heart Beats and Hella Mad

12,476 Days Alive

17 Second EKG

2 X-rays Taken

Today I thought I was having a heart attack at work. Spoilers: I wasn’t.

So. I apparently managed to inflict upon myself something called “acute costochondritis”. My rib muscles are inflamed and throwing a bitchfit. Oh, and I have to go see a cardiologist because they noticed arythmic cardiac rhythms while I was there. And as a side not, anything “acute” ain’t that damn cute. I’m pissed. And broke thanks to the lack of insurance.

I have to take it easy for the next two weeks or so. No more taking the stairs at work and such. It was basically explained to me that the inflammation of my rib muscles coupled with the family history of heart problems likely triggered a massive slow onset panic attack.

I took my damn mind mints. I’m pissed off that they were acting like I was faking it for attention or something.

I’m tired. I’m going to go read for a bit.

Take your meds, folks.
