Living With Fear as a Heart Failure Patient

I was diagnosed 4 months ago. I have been wearing a life vest for three months. I am so tired all the time. Go for echo on Wednesday. Next step, defibrillator. Is fainting part of CHF? It scares me. It's only happened twice so far. I am afraid this device will go off. Has anyone else experienced this?
