Hi all! I was just diagnosed with CHF last month after an episode of pulmonary edema. I am scared out of my mind but determined to not let this disease get the best of me.
I have noticed a lot of posts talking about heart problems I don't understand (ie. ablations) and am pretty sure that these don't apply to my situation.
Is there anyone else in the forum that suffers from CHF? I could really use some advice on how to tackle this disease and support to remain positive because I also suffer other serious problems and have crippling panic issues.

hey santos. diabetes.......this is a heart killer. trust me. and eyes, and teeth. how are your sugar levels? had a recent a1c? follow dr's advice. join a cardiac rehab support program. most major hospitals have them. need to breathe well. asthma mgt is good for oxygen supply and blood flow. do you eat good? no sugar, starch, etc. just wanted to say hi. I don't know a whole lot. a little, with my own experiences. the forum is a tad slow. people are beginning to flock, this is good. been doing a bit of meet and greet to keep the forum going. it is a important forum.
