Sat, Mar 2 3:26pm · - looking for work at 74 - in Just Want to Talk

Have you considered looking into being a school Crossing Guard? You’d work early mornings and later in the afternoon, but have the middle of the day off. Of course there’s weather to consider, but it’s a great job for retired people! Check with your local police department because they are the ones who usually do the hiring.

This sounds like a great idea! I’ve had bad reactions to medications in the past. For instance, about 12 years ago while taking Tricor for high triglycerides, I awoke one morning and couldn’t see out of one eye. A retina specialist diagnosed me with wet macular degeneration and commented that at 57 years old, I was very young to get that. I checked the local hospital website for side effects of Tricor (the only med I was taking). Two side effects were unusual bleeding and vision problems. I requested that my cardiologist take me off the med. After 10 days off Tricor, my vision returned, and there was no sign of wet macular degeneration. I manage my cholesterol through diet and exercise and tweak that diet when I need to. I eat a plant-based pescatarian diet. The following is my favorite salad. It’s a meal. I eat salads once or twice a day. Create your own amounts; these are just ingredients I use most frequently… and the salad can be stuffed into a baked potato, also, for a healthy comfort meal.
Grated carrot and grated cabbage (purple or green), are always the base of the salad. Then I add lacinato kale, arugula, avocado, beans (pinto, kidney, etc.), tofu, broccoli (shred the stalks), fruit (choose apples, oranges, grapes, mangoes, blueberries, raspberries, etc.), 1 oz. low-fat cheese (I like Cabot), and my dressing is olive oil and vinegar or olive oil and any fresh squeezed citrus…

Sat, Jan 19 6:46am · Supra Ventricular Tachycardia (PSVT) and Running in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I was told after my first ablation, that the heart swells a little while it’s being worked on and tiny pinhead-size areas could be missed. That could bring back the arrhythmia at a later time. I was playing town ball (1860’s baseball), hit a double, and the SVT’s came back. The second ablation was done a few weeks later.

I am not a runner, but 16 years ago I had SVT, 205 bpm. It was determined that my resting heart rate was too low for drugs. I had an ablation. Three months later the SVT came back (the electrophysiologist has said there was that chance). I had a second ablation. Since then I’ve had PVC’s from time to time. Last May I almost passed out at work from a short fast arrhythmia. My cardiologist thought it might be ventricular tachycardia. In June I had a LINQ loop recorder implanted.
