First off id like to say that I have almost gone crazy in my past, mentally crazy because I thought I had heart problems at the age of 23, It was all ofcourse anxiety and panic which I didnt know about.
I want to talk a little about my great grandmother and how this relates to health worries, she is from a mediterranean country..she was born in one area and has never left it, she has lived and is now in her 80s and is still there.
When she was younger (in the black and white days) she was quite poor like most people there and had to work in agriculture fields since a child, in the summer she would have to work from sunrise to sunset in 40 degree heat and bare footed as she was too poor to afford shoes.
Look around nowadays for a minute...everything were told is a health worry, were told to drink water every hour to do this and that, my grandmother didnt go into the doctor to treat her athletes foot, She couldnt drink water every hour, she didnt have anti depressants to cope with her poor life, she didnt have access to all the food we have today.
And yet shes 80 and reaching 90 years old and is still able to walk.
