It's the hysteric, neurotic way political topics are discussed on facebook which really puts me off these days. To give an example:

You might have heard in your news that there were incidents of North African men sexually harrassing women in lots of German cities on New Year's Eve. This whole thing is still causing lots of heated debates. Now in the meantime, a bar in my city (Freiburg) had some problems with drunk young men who tried to harass women. In the light of New Year's Eve's events, the staff of the bar discussed introducing a club card so nobody could attend the bar without this card. These internal discussions leaked into the public over obscure channels; the day after the matter was presented in the news in this fashion: all of Freiburg's clubs refuse to let in refugees. Before anybody of the involved persona was even able to answer on this, a shit storm started on facebook and in the comment sections of a couple news pages, repeatedly one of the doorkeepers of said bar was called a "nazi" - a man who is himself a refugee from Gambia, Africa.

It took 3 days until the boss and the staff of the bar, the staff people of other clubs, and various news editors who spread the wrong news were all heard and the whole matter was clarified. It had taken only one hour though for the fake news to spread all over the internet and for hundreds of online users to drag the bar, lots of other clubs, the mayor, the police and all inhabitants of the city into the dirt with verbal outbursts.

Just one example of my theory mankind has not at all learned yet to use the new medium internet properly.

It wasn`t only on Facebook. I read about it in my local newspaper and there was also a report about the issue on the daily tv news. I remember the story as if the local club had spoken a general restraining order against fugitives. That is the way, the story came over to me. Good to read a more differentiated report on this.

Thanks Henry. cool

Fortunately I won't have too much of a lifestyle adjustment because I eat clean and healthy, and exercise often. I'm just going to have to take it easy for a while, and ease my way back.

I might have to pass on Bruce in Philly in a couple of weeks though. angry I can deal with that (I think wink ) but fingers crossed I get my Dr's ok to keep to my LA trip as planned.

Thank you. smiley The surrounding countryside is amazing, the city itself has its bright and its dark sides as every city.

I thought something might be up, you weren't posting much, but I saw you on the Bruce thread so figured you were just busy. I entered my head a few times to check in with you, but I didn't. When will I learn to trust my instincts.

Sorry to hear this Eric, must be frustrating. Like you say 'genetics' Feel better! kiss

Best wishes to you Eric. This probably won't help much, as everyone is different....

I had a stent inserted as a result of an arterial blockage 13 years ago at 42. My lifestyle wasn't the best, but there was a strong history of heart disease in the family--Dad died of a heart attack when he was 60.

Fortunately, my heart was undamaged, and I immediately resumed my activities while improving my diet and exercise levels. Two weeks later I was at Disneyworld riding the roller coasters with my kids. smiley Docs said it was okay, just no snow-shoveling. I've encountered other unrelated health issues over time, but I see my doctors every six months and the heart stuff has remained excellent.

Good luck!

Thanks Dust, and it does help. It seems what happened to me is very similar to what you've gone through and good to know they weren't just blowing smoke up my butt when they said I should be back to normal.

Fortunately my heart itself wasn't damaged either which is definitely a positive and there are no other significant blockages or ones even close to being problematic.

I'm a roller coaster fan too, and looking forward to getting the go ahead to resume riding some. grin
