Because so many people are opinionated, ignorant poop heads.
Before a heart attack, your body releases large quantities of endorphins, giving a feeling of ecstacy...
Just kidding! Glad you're feeling better.
So half an hour ago I'm running at the Lake...it's 60 degrees sunny and beautiful... I've got some of my favorite music in the headphones and I FEEL GREAT!!!!
I run past the bench where just 2months or so ago I used to have to stop and rest in terrible fatigue and pain and breeze past it and realize I'm thankful, I am ready to push myself even further and harder than before and I have a great feeling that everything's going to pick back up and be great.
Now I don't know whether to thank God directly, thank one of his many intermediaries, feel lucky, thank fate, or just shrug my shoulders and ay I have, through hard work and time, healed. All I know for sure is that I am grateful.
Now god has a lot of intermediaries and most of them all have the same story about what they want you to do to lead a good life, most of them tell you that without going through them you're on your way to an uncomfortable eternity and most of their rules and guidelines are pretty much the same. Also, the majority of the mischief and cruelty that goes on in the world is courtesy of the followers of one of those intermediaries or the other and done in their name.
So I choose to be grateful to who or whatever has brought me through my illness and gotten me back to the business of getting on with it without being really 100% sure of who's responsible. Maybe it's just the doctors, family, me and time.
How is it I can feel so good and yet so many religious people will tell me I'm hell bound because I'm not following their particular deity?
And since it sounds like some doctors helped you out too, be sure to thank them as well.
