Heart Disease and Lifestyle Changes

Heart Disease and Lifestyle Changes

Heart disease often demands a radical change in lifestyle. Normal, everyday tasks like cooking and cleaning can be enough to cause fatigue and shortness of breath, to say nothing of more physically demanding activities like walking or exercise. People in jobs like construction are often forced to step away to accommodate their health limitations. For many, the disruption to that regular routine can be devastating.

Rehab and the Difficulties of Disability Benefits for Addiction

Rehab and the Difficulties of Disability Benefits for Addiction

When applying for disability benefits because of an addiction, there are specific hurdles to overcome. One of the most difficult is also one of the most necessary parts of the application process – being in a rehabilitation program.  Participating in a formal rehabilitation program or staying in a rehabilitation facility is something most if not all insurance companies consider mandatory to qualify for disability.

Heart Attacks on the Big Screen Leave a False Impression of Real-Life Sympt...

When we think of heart attacks, we often find ourselves picturing scenes from the movies. We remember that moment in Something’s Gotta Give where Harry (Jack Nicholson) collapses in pain after fooling around with his girlfriend, Marin (Amanda Pete). He flails about, wincing in pain, trying to deter Erica (Diane Keaton) from performing CPR. We think of the moment in The Godfather when Don Vito Corleone collapses suddenly while playing with his grandson in the tomato garden, dying almost instantly. We may even think of the silliness from Monty Python And The Holy Grail...
