One reason, and one reason only…Some facts about heart attacks.

This is going to be a LOT for a lot of you on a Monday morning. But it is a serious subject and should never be a versus subject.


ANY time, you make a SERIOUS health condition, that you cannot catch, about a group of other people. You are transphobic, you are racist etc.

Of COURSE trans people tell their doctor’s their biological sex,. You can’t CATCH heart attacks. There’s only two people who NEED to know your biological sex, yourself and your doctor. Jesus Christ STOP using transphobia and using it to take away from real life health situations! Heart attacks are a serious health condition and NO ONE should use them as a way to have a go at anyone.

Women and men are absolutely told what symptoms to look out for. I know about women’s atypical symptoms, if you don’t, that is purely on you. We’re in 2022 now, there are a lot of foundations, health and medical services that are specifically about heart conditions, and no excuse to not inform yourself. You don’t need to be told. You can also ask questions. Heck, I was sent to the ER a couple of years because I could feel my muscle stiffening from the cholesterol medication I’m on. I knew I wasn’t having a heart attack, but they sent me anyway. I was only 35. So again, it’s on you, the individual to find out.

As for women, we tend to not listen to our bodies as well…Anyone ever heard of man flu?lol…We all know when your man has got it, lol.

As I said before you cannot catch a heart attack. However, if you chose to get irrationally angry over your bigotries, then you will probably give yourself one. Including decided to tell people that you can’t “identify” your gender with an heart attack. Which is what Silver Apple “Queen” goes on to suggest. But you know, she doesn’t “hate” trans people, she just continually attacks them, brings them up, spreads misinformation about them in nearly every single post and comment and gets completely irrationally upset over them.

If you take anything away from this post. Whatever you chose to do with your health. Never EVER listen to someone who has a clear bias against an individual or a group of people. Myself, I am currently on medication that helps lower my cholesterol. I have a family history of high cholesterol. Although only my Dad has ever had a triple bypass on both sides of my family, that can be contributed to his alcoholism. I would rather just be safe.

Here are some FACTS:

Transgender men and women may have higher heart attack risk

Even after adjusting for cardiovascular risk factors such as age, high blood pressure, diabetes and lack of exercise, transgender men (who were born biologically female but now identify as male) had more than four times the rate of heart attack as cisgender women (who were born biologically female and identify as female) – 7.2 percent compared with 3.1 percent. Transgender men also had more than twice the rate of heart attack as cisgender men (who were born biologically male and identify as male).

Transgender women (who were born biologically male and identify as female) had more than twice the rate of heart attack as cisgender women. There was no significant difference in heart attack rates for transgender women and cisgender men.

I will point out as well. Even though trans gender/sexual people have been around since before Christianity. It is because of right wing patriarchal religions, that we know so little about trans gender science, medical and health. Heck, the Nazi’s actually burnt down the first LGBTQIA friendly Science and Health center. That is fact by the way, a lot of the older religions and older matriarchal societies have a third gender or sex. In fact, a lot of female Witch societies accept transgender people in their group. I am going to deeper into that on Thursday.

Women will tend tend to have more atypical symptoms, than typical

What is the difference between typical and atypical symptoms?

Atypical pain (women) is frequently defined as epigastric or back pain or pain that is described as burning, stabbing, or characteristic of indigestion. Typical symptoms (men) usually include chest, arm, or jaw pain described as dull, heavy, tight, or crushing.

This is one of the reasons that heart attacks in women tend to go undiagnosed. I am going to praise ALL women here, our bodies can handle a LOT. Whether or not you have children, or have menstruation, or even have the big boobs, a big menopause or a little one. I think I can safely speak for ALL women, when I say these are just what our bodies on a daily basis, lol.

  • Heart attacks are a horrible health condition. I made a joke above about the man flu, but men do tend to… not exaggerate…It’s a kind of weird “societal” thing, that’s not exactly a society thing. You would think, if you listened to society, that women would be the ones who don’t “work through” a heart attack, and men would not. Yet, its one of the situations that is the opposite. This is why I’m like gender stereotypes are so stupid, lol.

Dear ALL women, please start listening to your bodies more. It’s YOUR body, do not rely on others to take care of it for you. You have one body, listen to it and take care of yourself.

Now, if you excuse me. I am going to go throw up. Due to my mental health issues, talking about things like heart attacks, suicides and serious health conditions, tends to put myself really on edge. Basically I think I’m going to “get it”. But this is an important topic, that needs to be taken seriously and not made to be a versus issue.

Your health, your responsibility.

The best advice…stay calm

*Kitty still not home, but trying to distract myself*

That’s it.

When it comes to COVID and Omicron, stay calm.

Listen to the health and medical experts. Don’t necessarily follow what journalists say. Don’t listen to the news. Consider what the politicians say, but take their information and then see what the health and experts say.

We were getting through COVID (well some of us), and we can get through Omicron too.

Simple

After being completely humiliated this weekend, by my Aunt going to one of those “Freedom” “Protests” and her sign being completely and utterly wrong.

Here is a list of things that are simply simple.

  • Masks are not 100% perfect. Nothing else is either, they reduce the RISKS of getting COVID, or a flu, of spreading a disease or virus. I would say all businesses have to do a risk assessment, every so often. Does it stop accidents 100%? No, but that’s why you do a risk assessment, to reduce the risk. I don’t see the “Freedom Protestors” fighting those.
  • Let’s see, Rowling has defended Depp, Manson. She’s been quiet about a pregnant women, who was sacked from her production, for being pregnant and quiet about how a previous Fantastic Beasts actor is in jail for sexually assaulting an women. If that’s how one “protects women” … better the devil you know.
  • Anyone else noticed that the same people who said that Rittenhouse was not too emotional to travel borders with a gun (any gun), to a protest. Where he ultimately killed two people. Are the same people who say that people his age, are too emotional to understand their own body?
  • You absolutely have a choice to be vaccinated or not. If you chose not too, then be it on your head. But you absolutely have a choice, no one is forcing anyone to do anything. There was a news article in the 80’s (I believe) of when seats belts were first made Law. They were complaining about being “controlled” by the Government, then too. It’s a virus, it doesn’t care about your “rights” or your feelings, it’s not human, it’s a virus.

1980s video of people furious about seatbelt law has jarring parallels with today’s anti-vaxxers

This probably makes me a total biotch…

I just don’t feel sorry or anything really bad, for the Health and Medical workers who have been let go, because they refuse to get a vaccine.

Now, if they’ve had legitimate reasons for not getting it like medical, and yes religious, fine. They’ve known for months though this was coming up. Quiet frankly…

Like, I don’t know what to say about the situation. Other than, I just don’t feel sorry for them.

How can you work with the actual most vulnerable and not get a vaccine? Like surely working with COVID patients, you can SEE the impact it has? I’m now working with data entry and I’m STILL getting the vaccine.

My grandfather had emphysema, one winter, he got pneumonia. He went into Hospital, and then contracted MRSA, and that’s what killed him. What if it was one of the staff that passed that onto him? If I ever found that out, I would be so pissed! Screw these transphobes that say women in prison are the most vulnerable in our society … They are bloody well not.

The now-ex staff were lamenting that they’d have to find new careers…Bloody too right! You can’t work around infectious people, without some sort of protection for them and YOURSELF!

Actually, I take it back…I’m not the bitch, they are. I got my flu shot for the first time last year, even though that’s not’s COVID related. You can see reports where the cold/flu was down last year. More than likely people were getting shots, and the hygiene was SO much better.

I just do not feel bad for these people, but I feel like I’m supposed too.

What a Friday!

Oh my goodness, what a Friday this has been! Even from this morning, it’s just been go and go and go.

It started off with the food delivery, sometimes my partner and I get “lazy” and order our groceries to be delivered. Well, we got everything we bought, not even a single substitution. However, we got 10 cans of dog food, special clothes washing powers for sensitive skin (which might actually work well for me), and fancy toilet paper. When I rang to tell them about it, because of COVID we can’t even take it back to the store.

Then when I dealt with that, I got a call from my Mum. It’s a working day for her, I never get a call from my mum on a working day. My heart went instantly into my mouth. Turns out, it’s all fine, she was just nervous, because she’s looking at a home for my Gran, without my Aunt, because it is also a working day for my Aunt.

THEN, you might notice. I am not writing a post about my new working website. That is all sorted now, HOWEVER, after the call from my Mum. I think got a call from my job provider about a job, I had applied for and how the people want to see me. Now when I applied for the job (and it does really interesting. Digitising History), it said “casual”. When I went a talked to my provider, they said it’s likely going to be full time. That isn’t casual…at all! The interview is next week, so I will ask about that…But, if I get it and it is full time…

THEN…! The NSW Premier (Sydney’s state leader) had a important announcement. She’s resigning! For a second, I was relieved, she is SUCH a snob, and such a Federal Government lackey. She is the reason that NSW is in the state it is now in, she’s one of those “leaders” that chose to ignore health and medical advice. Honestly, I don’t think she’s thought about the Hospitals or ICU’s in NSW once.

This is the big news though. She is not resigning over COVID.

Live updates: NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian resigns after ICAC announces investigation into relationship with Daryl Maguire

This has been going on since last year.

When did this start happening?

I am all for Women’s Rights, but I’ve noticed something over the last couple of years.

What is it with grown women lately, causing harm and spreading misinformation, just to turn around and play “victim”?

I know I go on a lot about Rowling a lot, but she isn’t the only women doing those sorts of things.

We have a female journalist here in Australia, who is clearly biased towards one particular political party, at the tax payers expense. Most of the time she’s called out on it, she just blocks those people. Then turns around on our taxpayer national news front to say how much she’s being “bullied” on Twitter. She calls it misogny (which it isn’t) but she also fails to mention that the male journalists are being called out on it too.

This is becoming a re-occurring theme with women. Women who are being really horrible, and obviously bias. Want to them turn around and play “victim”.

There’s always been women like this, but it seems to be really bad in the last year or so.

As an outsider, this is what I think America needs

A better education system.

I was horrified people, HORRIFED people. When I witnessed a conversation on Facebook.

I went on to write a post, that only people who knew would know. When I saw the conversation.

Someone asked another person “Are you saying that you would have no problem with a Doctor opening you up without a mask on”. Then the conversation got silly, because they started to talk about Walmart and how Doctors wouldn’t open you up there.

However, it went on and this MOTHER OF CHILDREN said and I quote “Are you saying that I would be less at risk from a deadly infection, if a Doctor opened me up (at Walmart), if they slapped a mask on their face”.

For some reason, people had either given up with this person, or just didn’t come back to Facebook yet. So I replied and “Yes”.

Also though, my partner made a good point that I then pointed out too them. This mother has young children, so I asked her “Are you teaching your children to cover there mouths when they sneeze? Doesn’t matter if it’s with their hands or their elbows. Are you teaching them to cover their mouth when they sneeze?”.

America doesn’t need guns, doesn’t need prayers, doesn’t even really need a President…No country really NEEDS one person governing it. What every country needs in a good education and America is in DESPERATE need of it. I think that if the US had good education, everything else would just fall into place. INCLUDING GOOD HEALTH PRACTICES.

Living Longer

So this is not a post about HOW to live longer. I think that’s pretty well covered, but I was talking to my mum about my Gran’s current situation. At the beginning of the year, it was discovered that she had, in fact, a mini stroke. Now we’ve known something has been off with her for a little while. It’s always good though to have a reason.

What my mum and I were talking about though is how her grandparents went, and is it really so great being able to live longer these days? Yes, lives may have been shorter, but usually only by a few years, and when they went, they want. Both her grandparents just dropped one day.

Whereas now, they probably could have lived, but at what quality of life? Both my great grandparents, like their daughter (my Gran) had really extraordinary minds. Its not like now with my Gran, we watch as her and her amazing mind slowly drift away =/

Sorry for the morbidity.

It has made me think though, what’s the point of a long life, if there’s no quality too it. We shouldn’t be looking at JUST how to live longer, but also how to have a longer QUALITY of life.

Nurture Thursday – Letting Things Go

Nurt Thurs – Letting things go

How hard is it in 2020, to let things go?! My mum and I were just talking last night, that we don’t understand that hate the year has brought. It’s all been over the top and over aggressive. The main thing is, the hate, has been completely unnecessary.

You MUST find a way though, to be able to every now and then “let go”. It will do you mental and in turn, physical world of good. You can’t spend the whole time, going “Woe is me”. You need to let go and give yourself permission to relax, to turn off your brain. Or do something fun with your brain. Even if it’s only for a hour. Like today, I sat down and wrote out ALL my pen pal letters, all ready for posting tomorrow! I am so finally happy with them!
