88. A loved-one of mine died a couple of days following a "routine procedure" like this.

 

Whistling past the graveyard (if you'll pardon the expression) really does nothing to change the severity and seriousness of any invasive procedure like this. I know it's frightening, but the best way to deal with one's fear of what's dead ahead and unavoidable is to just admit it and to be brave (and informed) no matter how dreary things may appear to be.

It really serves no good purpose for anyone to try and deny that there's a serious underlying condition. It's obviously not just going to just go away magically when stents are inserted. Heart disease progresses slowly and cumulatively... there has been damage, we just don't know how much... but if it was enough to cause chest pains, and if it was enough to warrant this emergency procedure, then it must have been pretty damn serious.

Listen, all I'm trying to say is that there's a BIG difference between having a positive outlook and being in some sort of aggressive denial about things. Try to be brave.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
