Express Yourself

There I was rolling through life, a healthy, athletic, non-smoking, 46-year-old male. I had never been to the hospital for anything more than a broken finger. Then, last July I had some discomfort in my chest for a couple days. Heartburn was my diagnosis. Reluctantly, and by the persistence of my girlfriend I went to the emergency room. My EKG showed normal sinus rhythm. Not a heart attack, good news!
