Being Yourself Is More Than Enough

Posted on May 14, 2018

"After years of feeling like I need to be better, stronger, healthier, and in control, I now know I am enough." - Member of MyHeartDiseaseTeam

Members of MyHeartDiseaseTeam experience the burden of heart disease physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Sometimes we strive to appear healthier than we are to avoid the stigma of heart disease. Other times, we experience relief and support from peers who've been in our shoes.

"I'm getting out of the rat race. I'm not hiding my condition anymore. If I'm tired, I'm going to rest. Hearing from others with heart disease has taught me that I have to prioritize ME."
-Member of MyHeartDisease
Team
