What heart failure does NOT mean

I see and hear many people say their life is almost over when they get the diagnosis of "heart failure". Folks, it doesn't mean that at all. Briefly, it means the heart is failing to meet all the demands of your body. You might not be able to do in extreme the things you used to do but you can still do it in moderation. Your life isn't over, but a new curve.
