THE PATIENT

While on holiday with my husband, Denis, six years ago, I had a heart attack. I was sitting in the car waiting for him to buy a coffee when I suddenly felt a burning sensation in my chest, similar to indigestion.

The pain gradually became more intense and I began to feel weak so I couldn’t get out of the car to call for help. When Denis came back, he called an ambulance, which arrived and blue-lighted us to hospital.
