Well, it has officially been one year since being diagnosed with Dilated Cardiomyopathy. I have had my ups and downs, emotionally and physically. I have had my first ever surgery other than a c-section this year. I am handling everything better today than when I was first diagnosed. I have learned to make some changes. Less caffeine. Less sodium. More exercise. More time spent with my family living life to the fullest. Physically, I do find myself getting tired when doing things and I have learned to not overdo myself. Emotionally, I think I have done a good job dealing with it. There have been a few breakdowns where I have wondered "Why Me?" What did I do to get heart disease. I thought I was pretty healthy. I'm young. I have 3 beautiful boys. All I want to do is get better, so that I can be around to see grand kids and great grand kids. With my faith in God, and my amazing family supporting me, I am able to. I have an appointment in a few weeks and having another echo done. Praying for an improvement!!
