So, Congestive Heart Failure?
Edit: I'm just going to edit this down to the relevant questions, lol. And while we're at it, please feel free to share materials related to overcoming anxiety and hypochondria.
Let's say that I, somehow, at 27 years old, ended up with Congestive Heart Failure (CHF).
What could I do about it? How could I manage it? Reverse it?
What do y'all know about CHF? Is it a situation like diabetes, where it can be reversed with a great diet, exercise and wise supplementation? Can the heart muscle get its mojo back once it's weakened? Even if symptoms improve, will it still kill you prematurely down the line? I've read accounts in a few places of total "cures" or "reversals" like we hear about for diabetes, but I guess I'm curious about the specifics from people who might actually know, and not just anonymous posters on random blogs.
I started this thread because I was hyper-paranoid about CHF. Some long talks and assessments with a few nurses have pretty much resulted in a diagnosis of "You're not dying, Skeletor. Shut the hell up and get some compression stockings like the rest of us."
Someone needs to revoke my Google privileges. Googling symptoms and deciding "welp, it's terminal," never ceases to be a bad time.
Down the line, if I end up with a positive CHF diagnosis and I die, pls gather all of my posts into an ebook. I'd like for you guys to title it "Skeletor, As We Knew Him: The Lord of Snake Mountain and His Bio-Hacking Misadventures".
