Just Another Reason

Blog Post created by Todd24 on Dec 6, 2018
Just give me a reason just a little bit's enough  Just a second we're not broken just bent and we can learn to Breathe Easy again   It's in the stars, it's been written in the scars on our hearts That we're not broken just bent and we can learn to Breathe Easy  again. 
Some will recognize i took some poetic license from a favorite song, but what i really wanted to say was.  Today I was at the DR.  Just a check up and chastisation cause my blood pressure is too high and my cholesterol is too high and I need to lose a few pounds Blah Blah Blah.
The Dr has whats called the Framingham Risk Score which is a calculator that takes into account Age Sex Cholesterol levels, Blood pressure etc and gives you the Percent Chance of having a heart attack in the next ten years.  
So the DR plugged in my scores into her App and Ive got a 13% chance.  So I said for S&G put down that I am a smoker.  I jumped from 13% to 20.7%  JUST ANOTHER REASON to remain Smoke Free. Now if I could just give up the potato chips..... Celebrating 6 years and 11 months. Happy Holidays everyone.
