ah but looking on the net can scare yourself witless. im so sorry reg your mom and now your aunty. but like nonotme says, "my mum lived over 25 years after she had heart failure so its not all the same,"

try not to focus on too far ahead i am having to learn to do this. its not easy especially when the anxiety dialogue is running. me i have to take it a day at a time otherwise i would be very wobbly.


i would encourage you not to l00k up things on the net. you have more than enough anxiety for a village why add to it. we cant control life but we can control what we choose to read about and have that as reality. do you know that ignorance is bliss i reckon in my wee humble opinion.

once you have done what can be done as in making sure appointments are kept etc and help and support is available then that is really all you can do.

you sound like you need some much needed TLC. what would that be for you? why not do it? ;) as thinking about the situation 24/7 will do you no good or your auntie come to that.

go on treat yourself to something really nice. have some time off from being in the glare of the headlights.peace to you.

My grandma also had heart failure, but it was treated with medicine, and she felt much better and lived for quite a few more years after.
Please don't panic :hug:

I'm so sorry Fairy Lucretia, I know the heartbreak of loss. Lost my mom at 16 and my aunt a month later. That was a very rough time in my life. Everything just hit all at once and I was truly at my lowest point. But I got through it. I know you will experience much heart ache over this. I promise you will get through it though. However, I hope worse doesn't come to worse. I pray your aunt pulls through this, and she lives well past her years. I'm wishing you and yours, much love and hope. You have my thoughts and prayers.

Very sorry to hear that Fairy Lu, it is not easy to face losing loved ones, even if it hasn't happened yet. Let's hope she is one of the lucky ones and lives another decade at least!

Many hugs :hug1:
