      Hey hey, just posted this to another young person- Hello โœ‹ I was very very very lucky and got diagnosed at the age of 10- 20 years ago.! Was always funny in the beginning, I didn't feel sick and would be up and walking around the hospital while the other sick kids were tubed up in bed ๐Ÿ˜ My advice/what's worked for me in the past 20 years- -You will feel fragile but don't let it stop you from living your life. -get a cardiologist that you can build a relationship with and is open to hearing what works for you! (Example- my first adult cardiologist was an older man, very traditional and didn't want me playing sports, he was very very conservative. He was strict so I (stupidly) rebelled. Whereas now I have a younger cardiologist who understands I want to move and be active. He is up to date on new literature and even gave me the go ahead to do a bodybuilding comp! We worked together to be able to reach the goal). -don't use your condition as an excuse not to live your life โค๏ธ -use the condition to your advantage ๐Ÿ˜‰ don't want to go on a certain trip? Sorry heart condition. Don't want to do *insert any activity*? sorry heart condition. I understand this is contradictory but hey it's a good tool ๐Ÿ˜† -be smart! Take your meds, get activity in, eat sensibly- follow the regular healthy lifestyle principles. -and again DONT BE SCARED TO LIVE LIFE ๐Ÿ˜

      Hi! I have been dealing with CHF for about 11 years. Now I am on the heart transplant list! You can go for a long time with CHF. Try to be as active as the doctor will let you. I am 66 so I am twice your age! Be sure to take all your medication as prescribed!
