Online groups like this are so important! Even though we live right outside of Knoxville, there is not a support group for Heart Failure Patients or their caregivers. I can't imagine how hard it is for people living in even more remote areas in our state to find support. Groups like this are such a lifeline and I am so thankful my husband became a part of it. I have learned so much about what he goes through and it has helped me understand him better and become a better care taker for him!

Since my coronary artery disease, which resulted in a heart attack, has been successfully treated with stents and medication, the support I need is primarily from my own efforts to remain healthy. That means some don'ts (alcohol, nicotine, excessive consumption of red meat, carbohydrates, salt) and some dos (exercise, balanced diet, hydration, semi-annual visits to my cardiologist). Since I'm retired, I also try to maintain a balanced schedule with lots of varied activities. I find that sitting around leads to bad habits, especially dietary.
