Doctors tell their patients with heart failure that they need to make changes with their lives. Usually this entails changing their eating habits, remembering to take more medications, identifying changes in their bodies and reducing their stress level. This can be very overwhelming for someone dealing with an illness, not to mention the emotions that the person is going through knowing that they have a serious heart condition. It can be difficult for family members to always be around with their work schedules or children’s schedules, so the person can then become lonely.
