Thanks for the reply
If you are a cardiovascular patient and have symptoms of depression then you may qualify. I think the biggest hurdle is getting cardio patients that meet the 12 month (ish) window
Also, you do not necessarily have to have a diagnosis of depression. I think folks sometimes see the word "depression" and think that they have to have a diagnosis, when just experiencing low mood is a symptom. If you have a diagnosis from the depressive disorders, then that is fine as well (Bipolar fits in that area). In regard to posting on the depression forum, the cardio piece would be a factor and I believe many if not most would likely not qualify.
While I am here, I will add for all that I have Atrial Fibrillation. This dissertation stems in part from my experience with rehabilitation after my own major event a number of years ago. I hope to improve rehab programs with this work, or at least improve follow-on assessments.
I appreciate your help, and feel free to share with people outside of the forum.
