My name is Michael, If there's anybody out there that just recently got diagnosed with CHF, And you're scared and you have nobody to talk to You can give me a shout at This is a scary disease it's very unpredictable. My heart beat is at 8%, So I do know a little bit on how to deal with it, And I too had nobody to talk to because your family medoes your family members really don't want to hear you talking about it all the time so I have nobody to talk to. I don't have insurance I don't even have a doctor I'll wait till I run out of medication and then I go to the emergency room, But whatever you do don't run out of medication.

      I was diagnosed last December and it scared the daylights out of me. I didn’t have insurance and spent 20 days in the hospital between two different stays of Dec and Jan. When I went in the hospital and when I came out a week later I was down 50 lbs from fluid retention. At the same time, I was diagnosed with many other things including hypothyroidism, diabetes type 2, high blood pressure, and a bunch of others that I can’t remember all of them. Then I developed diabetic retinopathy and macula edema and my eyesight is significantly reduced now because of it. Fortunately I’ve finally found some local resources which are helping. A couple of the doctors from the hospital are not working with me on the bill. I can’t work and have no income. Today the heart care place I go to wants me to talk to my primary Dr about getting tested for MS. I hope I don’t have this too but showing symptoms that need to be checked. On top of this, my PSA numbers are higher than they want that indicate a potential for prostate cancer. I suffer from depression. Also neuropathy in my legs, feet, hands. I am constantly tired and never feel rested and I get winded so easy these days that it makes life difficult. I was a go getter and active before this. I always thought my health was better than this.
