I am 6 years post cardiomyopathy and CHF diagnosis. I have never felt this angry and emotional and chronically fatigued related to my health issues before. Has anyone else got feedback on this?
Fatigue, anger and worthlessness are also symptoms of depression. It is very easy to become depressed when you have a chronic illness. When you aren't feeling well it can be a real challenge to do even the simplest task, you can become angry at yourself for not being able to do it. Or, maybe someone made a hurtful comment because they don't understand why you can't do the things you usually do. You may start to believe that you are worthless. No human being is ever worthless. Stress, negative thoughts, fears or fear of the unknown can cause fatigue and when coupled with illness can make you feel down right exhausted. My best advice, from my own experience, is to find someone you trust to share your feelings with. Someone who will listen and not judge you. Whether it is one person or many, having an emotional support person(s) can make all the difference in the way you feel emotionally and physically. I have learned that physical and emotional health go hand in hand. One effects the other. May God bless you with inner strength and serenity.
I jusy got diagnosed 2 months ago my anger and fatige is often. I was told it was the medications. When I notice im in a bad mood i try to control it by doing something that make me happy.
This must be a common problem with heart patients as I feel the same a lot of the time...cheers to all...
