Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) group.

Welcome @selima109. You said you have an enlarged heart. And you have had heart stents. I'm sorry to hear that you are under a lot of stress lately. Can you tell me a bit more about you?

Hello @selima109
I am sorry about your recent loss and the stress of also trying to find a place to move.

I have two nephews with the genetic version of the hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The oldest was fainting in 8th grade before he was diagnosed. His first open heart surgery they put in a pacemaker that also defibrillates when he has a bad cardiac rhythm (Atrial Fibrillation). He is an adult now, but after his 5 open heart surgeries, there is nothing more except for trying to slow things down with medications.

Support of friends and family is very helpful, or if you find a support group.

I am looking for an online support group for my nephew that combines a heart problem and depression. He is not on hospice yet, but regular people with depression cannot relate to him or he just doesn’t want to share assuming no one else had cardiac issues.
I wish you the best of luck with everything, and definitely find those who are supportive of you psychologically and the people you trust for support!
