I was diagnosed four years ago with broken heart syndrome. I have chronic systolic heart failure, congestive heart failure, and dilated cardiomyopathy. I have a left bundle branch block and a damaged valve.
It has been a rough one. I try to stay positive but do get tired of tests and meds. I get tired easily and feel anxious when I want to do things. When I was diagnosed they told me I may need a transplant one day. I am praying that does not happen. I did get a defibrillator/pacemaker combination, but they could not make the line that helps with afib work due to an accident poking into my heart.
