I am an overweight 31 yr old female that has been recently diagnosed with diabetes but the plus side to all of this is that I have recently lost 20 lbs and brought my blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes levels back down to the normal range!! Yay me right, well no! I had a 6 month check up today and found out all is improving well but the EKG they did came back abnormal and they want me to see a cardiologist to have a stress test. The doctor said not to worry because it could have just been the thicker breast tissue blocking the leads reading but of course I panic and here is why: My mother passed away 6 years ago at the age of 41 due to a heart attack (her 3rd one). I have been scared ever since because I have alot of physical attributes she did but I take care of myself and she did not. She was an uncontrolled diabetic as well. I have been diagnosed with an anxiety/panic disorder because I think every chest pain is me dying of a heart attack!! Am I going crazy thinking I am ging to end up like my mom and every chest pain means something is wrong???
