I always joke that I’m getting old. Friday and Saturday nights used to mean being out until last call (or later if we had to stop for snacks) and now sometimes I feel like Cinderella, if I don’t get home by midnight, I’ll turn into a pumpkin (that’s how that story went, right?). Not that I never go out, if you follow my blog or twitter, you probably know I stay busy but staying out until 3am actually stresses me out, I know there’s no way I’ll get a great night’s sleep! I never thought that 27 would feel so different from 23, I didn’t realize the difference a couple of years could make, it’s like we’re actually grown-ups now.
Not only does it feel like every day someone is getting engaged or having a baby on my Facebook, but I also notice that the people around me are getting older. We’re expected to be responsible and know things, that we always just expected the adults to know – but now – we’re the adults.
We’re now expected to know how to file our taxes, what an RRSP is, book our own appointments and most importantly, what do to in an emergency.
Bayer is trying to get the word out about how Aspirin 81mg may help save your life or the life of someone you love in the event of a heart attack. A recent survey by Vision Critical found that while 75% of Canadians feel they know the signs of a heart attack, only 10% were able to actually identify the correct symptoms when asked. Common signs of a heart attack include: chest and upper body discomfort (including in the arms, jaw, neck and back), shortness of breath, sweating, nausea and light-headedness.
Many of us may know that Aspirins 81mg may help save a life in the event of a heart attack, but probably aren’t exactly sure how. In the event of a heart attack, call 911 then crush or chew two Aspirin 81mg tablets. With heart attacks happening every 7 minutes in Canada, that information could save a life.
So now you can be a real grown-up and tell everyone you know. Have The Talk with your friends and loved ones, it could save somebody’s life.
