How to manage
Just a chit-chat post, but I could have selected "coping"...
I had my CRT-D installed 2 months ago. (My Chf was diagnosed in November 2020)
Healing went fine, scar is ok. No bruises, no problems... I have a control échographie end of may, and I'll see my cardiologist beginning of June.
I still find it a little bit frustrating that I need to wait so long, but, it is what it is...
I may have mentionned that I live in France. Lucky, because I have been adjusting at home, on paid sick leave since Nov 1st.
I have been asked a lot if I'm not bored, staying at home all day. I must say that my reply surprised even me.
No I'm not bored at all.
I ve spend quite some time between my house and hospital, taking care of my health, without worrying about work and schedules.
Just taking care of myself.
We are currently in a (3rd) lockdown with curfew : Covid restrictions...
Bars & restaurants, theatres and cinemas are closed since november, discos and nightclubs since March 2020...
So, staying at home does not make me miss anything.
I spent a lot of time with I, myself and me with doing what I like most : singing and craft...
These days, I've been painting. (I downloaded two pictures to the gallery today, just to let you know what I'm talking about.)
My health issues are not solved. Far from that. Not sure they ever will, and I feel very grateful for the time I can spend taking care of myself.
I just wanted to share this with you. I hope it will let newbies know that even when you nearly die, there might still be a way to go on living a optimistic life, even with idiopathic severe heart failure at a (kinda ? 😀) young age
