How do you cope with living with an LVAD?Tue, 08/18/2020 - 4:45PM
I'm not exactly new to living with an LVAD since I've had mine for two years now, but I'm still adjusting and trying to cope with it.
It's a huge change in my life that happened at a very young age. I was only twenty-one years old when I got my LVAD and I've spent two of my birthdays in the hospital that I got my LVAD.
I do struggle with anxiety, depression, and PTSD but I still try to be optimistic and positive. I'm grateful to still be alive, but sometimes I wonder at what cost? How do you cope with living with an LVAD?
