Family Understanding and Heart Disease

Posted on April 06, 2018

"I know heart disease is difficult for others to understand... It is hard feeling like I am judged for having heart issues." - A member on MyHeartDiseaseTeam

Realizing you need help after a heart disease diagnosis is not always easy because some feel less independent while others may fear lack of understanding from family.

On MyHeartDiseaseTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with heart disease, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Family understanding is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about family understanding:

How many of you are the go-to person in your extended family? How are you doing with saying no?

Do you find yourself feeling vulnerable in crowded spaces, or find yourself trying not to be a burden?

Take one day at a time, enjoy your family and friends.

Here are some conversations about family understanding:

Family issues...always.

I think I've finally recovered from having my family visit for almost 10 days.

I now spend two days with a grandchild. It's great fun, but still exhausting at times.

Can you relate?
