Having Level III Congestive Heart Failure, I know how hard it can be when you are told you have a heart condition, especially if it is one that has no cure. You go through denial, anger, fear, sorrow, a second stage of anger, and then hopefully acceptance.

When a person is told they have a 'heart condition,' the doctor tries to explain it to you. However, with myself and everyone I know who has a heart condition, the doctor never seems to tell you quite enough to satisfy that 'need to know.' That is why this group was created. To make it easier to find the knowledge you need. The first thread here contains nothing except links to sites where hopefully you will find the information you need. If you do not find something you are looking for, start a thread. I will try to help you find out what you need to know.

Learning you have a heart condition can be a very emotional time. Sometimes you can talk to family and friends. Sometimes you can't. It's not that they don't care. They simply don't understand, unless they have gone through a similar situation themselves. So if you need to talk, vent, scream, cry--start a thread. Then check back, but give me a little time to respond. I will be monitoring the group, so I won't be missing threads; however, I will not be able to be here 24/7.

Remember this is an open group. There are children and teens on site everyday who could visit just to see what's here, so the Care2 Code of Conduct will be enforced here.

Here's hoping for the very best for you, your family member, or the person you care for--as the case may be.
