I have chronic diastolic heart failure. I am not responding to my meds. My doc told me that diastolic heart dysfunction is not very treatable. I also have pulmonary embolism with moderate hypertension. I had to stop teaching because I needed oxygen 24/7. I am only 52 but I should of died a long time ago when I had cancer(Hodgkin's Disease) at the age of 15 because of the breathing complications I had.. Now I have Radiation Toxicity to the heart and lungs from my treatment from cancer. I also do not have any friends. I think I remind them of death. My family support is zero because they don't care......or they are scared and I do not want to worry them but they do know I am sick but never seem to call. All of my grown children live so far away. I always have to call them and act like nothing is wrong so I don't get them upset. My husband works long hours and is burned out I guess so I stopped bothering him with all my complaint of pain and sorrow. I just feel really stuck. I can not seem to find a good doctor who understands my problems. I do not have a support team. I am exhausted when ever I do anything so I just feel so depressed and hopeless and just want to cry but for some reason I can't cry. What am I to do?
