In 2008, a year after my heart attack and bypass surgery, I was invited by our local cardiac rehab unit to share my recovery experience with others doing the rehab program. After my first presentation, I was asked to come back and give my talk on a regular basis and have been doing so ever since.

In my talk, I cover issues I had to deal with including depression, anxiety and changing my lifestyle. In this video presentation which is a recording of one my talks coupled with photos taken over the years since my heart attack you will get an idea of some of the material I cover in each talk including:

• assessing my lifestyle and making changes
• dealing with stress, exercise and poor diet
• the role of cardiac rehab in my recovery process - turning 'negatives' into 'positives'
• finding a new hobby -- in my case getting involved in helping my wife look after injured wildlife and adopting birds
• rediscovering an old hobby, that of photography (some photos included in this video)
• volunteering -- becoming involved in spreading the awareness of CVD, Heart Attack and Diabetes in the community including creating bumper stickers and T shirts to help spread the message.

It should be noted that topics can vary from talk to talk depending on circumstances and the time available to me and with this in mind I am listing a number of talks to provide a better overview of the issues I cover.

Please feel free to share this video with others.
