Pamela G

Patient Leader

I am a single mom with 3 boys, one with POS-NOS. I myself have ADHD with comorbid Anxiety/Panic Attacks and Depression. I suffered a heart attack at age 36 as a vegetarian, non-smoker who went to the gym 1, 2 and even 3 times a week. The journey to figure out how I became a person with cardiovascular disease led to the discovery of PCOS. Most women never learn they have a heart issue, instead, they die because heart attacks are for old, chain-smoking, bacon burger, fat, sweaty dudes and it always comes with pain in the left arm. That's not what a heart attack is in most men or women, just a Hollywood dramatization.
