Do You Find Yourself Feeling Vulnerable In Crowded Spaces, Or Find Yourself Trying Not To Be A Burden?

Does Anyone Else Feel Like They Cannot Eat Properly?

Does Anyone Else Feel Like They Cannot Eat Properly?

I just can't seem to eat healthy. I know exactly what I should be eating and how much but it's like I don't even care. I survived a heart attack wouldn't you think that I would want to prevent another one if I could. It feels like I don't even care because I'll eat whatever I want to and it's not good. It's like pass the cheesecake in the chocolate now please

A MyHeartDiseaseTeam Member said:

I have had 2 heart attacks and still I struggle with eating healthy. I gave up smoking but compulsive eating remains an issue.
