  1. hi there, thank you for sharing with us & joining our community. 32 is so young- I am sure you were not expecting to hear your doctors tell you you had a widow maker. I bet it was really scary for you. I like your attitude " you have heart failure but you won't let it run you" that's such a great attitude and I am sure it helps keep you positive and pushing forward. How do you feel with an EF of 22%? ❤️ Best, Amani (@Heart-Failure.net team)
