The reason I have not been writing is lack of time. Well..not lack of it I have 24 hours a day like the rest of you! I have a family, job and I am studying so I have to choose. One of the things that I chose to rest was my blog. It is funny when I stopped, months went by and the motivation somehow just did not come back.
Maybe because this summer I wrote my thesis in Art history and between work and family I was writing my thesis. So to get away from it all!! Would not include writing.
What inspired me to write today is the fact that young women are having heart attacks due to as it seems stress. And stress related disease I read this article, why do zebras not get ulcers on Wikipedia and I think it is interesting that the repeated stress is making us sick. Because we are constantly in stress mode opposed the stress of the zebra that is purely ´run for your life now´
Then there was this doctors article on French women and heart disease. Pretty interesting. The conclusion is;
«Considering that the young women in the FAST – MI registry tended not to have high cholesterol levels nor high blood pressure, one has to wonder about a possible role of inflammation. We do know that inflammation is involved in atherosclerosis and acute coronary events, although a causative role has yet to be defined and proven or unproven. Inflammation is certainly related to both obesity and smoking and could therefore, at least in theory, be a common link explaining the changes in risk profile among French women suffering a heart attack. I wonder if the French paradox is till alive and well.»
The doc´s blog is full of useful info and links.
So what to do?
Relax cut yourself some slack. And breathe through your heart 🙂
