Need to Vent

  1. A few weeks ago I had a stress test,didn't do very well. I saw a cadiologist and had a cardiac cath. I have some narrowed arteries.No surgery at this time just medication. I have pvd as well.I am doing everything I can but,guess I'm just feeling like the poster child for Cardiovascular diseases!I know things could be a lot worse,I just feel a little overwhelmed right now.

    Vent anytime, especially if it makes you feel better. Keep your chin up and do the best you can to be healthy. I hope you feel better soon and I'll be praying for a long and healthy life for you!!!!

    Ah yes Moonchild I sympathise with is such an "out of our control' sorta feeling being unwell.
    Hope all goes well....sounds like it is mild narrowing so far so keep those risk factors in check...
    Wishing you the best, come vent anytime:kiss

    Thanks for the words of encouragement.I sure work on the risk factors,my family history is just awful! The meds are helping with the chest pain and palpitations,it just takes a while to adjust.

    Aus,you are right,the" out of control" feeling is the very worst!
