Echocardiogram: I assume they mentioned the Ejection Fraction (EF) being at 60%? The Ejection fraction is a measurement of how well your heart is pumping. The normal range is between 55-70, therefore they told you "it was fine." ...Read more

Very common: Almost everyone gains weight after quitting smoking, usually in the range of 5-10 pounds, but sometimes more, and occasionally much more. If you are truly limiting yourself to 1200 calories and are exercising, i don't know why it is continuing, and you should see your doctor to rule out any metabolic problem, like thyroid disease or many others. Congrats on quitting smoking after 20 years! ...Read more

I smoked a gram of weed lastnight for the first time in 3 months. Can I get it outta my system in 19 days?

Maybe, maybe not: Studies find that marijuana can be detected in the blood up to 3 weeks, and in the urine up to 3 months, depending on the person, the amount used, and his frequency of smoking mj. In frequent users, mj is detectable for a long time. With infrequent, occasional users, mj may be out of the body after a few days in some instances. Mj brownies are probably detectable for similar durations as smoking. ...Read more

I am looking for some information as well as encouragment about getting a disco gram because I am very nervous?

Stay active: Exercise is a great way to relieve stress. Your body releases endorphins during exercise, which can help you feel calm. If you exercise 30 - 60 minutes a day, your stress levels can improve. When stressed, take 5 slow, deep breaths with your eyes closed, then roll your shoulders forward 5 times, then back 5 times. This will slow your heart rate and release tension in your neck and shoulders. ...Read more
