Tonight was my first night back after a 3 week long hiatus, and what happens? A man has a heart attack, falls off the elliptical, and DIES in front of me... seriously. Everyone was standing around while a few medical professionals were trying to resuscitate him and talking about what happened and I was standing there crying (dang pregnancy hormones). The guy was only 39 years old I think that was one of the most traumatizing experiences I've ever had.

OH honey. That would be traumatizing! I'd be bawling too...pregnancy or not. I remember vividly the day I passed a fatal accident before the EMTs got to his vehicle (they were working on the people who were alive). It's a hard thing to see.

That is just awful. I would have cried too. When I was parent with James, I think, I witnessed a city bus strike a young boy riding his bike. I don't know why I stayed and watched the paramedics work on him, but I did and you should tell that it was no point. I am still traumatized 19 years later.

OMG! I wouldn't be able to go back there again. Too creepy. Was he overweight at all? 39 is far too young to die of a heart attack!

that's so horrible! I mean, I've heard of things like that happening but seeing it is a completely different ballgame. I would definitely be traumatized by that. So young too

Wow that is terrible! Bad things can happen any time though, even marathon runners can die of a heart attack
Is there a different gym you can go to so you won't be reminded of it so vividly?
