Hi, I hate to even be doing this but I don’t know where else to go. This past year has been a tough year for my family and I. It all started when my mom went in for a normal check up and found out that she had heart failure. During this time she was obviously stressed just knowing this but then found out that it was worse than expected and a defibrillator needed to be put in. She went through the surgery and it was successful but due to the time in the hospital and multiple appointments after it has also affected her job. A few months later while on a vacation in Florida my dad felt sick on the beach. He put this off during the time he was there and decided he’d wait to go to the doctor when he came home. He got home and scheduled his appointment and after multiple tests they found out that he also had heart failure. He was forced to no longer work due to the weakness of his heart. He has since had many things done in order to prepare for if he is needed to be placed on the heart transplant list. We hope this doesn’t become the case and although the doctor said it could happen tomorrow or it could never happen, it has been stressful. My mom has battled breast cancer at which time we had to move in with my grandpa as well. I know that it’s a hard time of the year and that other people have hard times as well. I have just gotten to the point where it’s something every day. Stressing over bills, having doctors appointments for them, issues at our home, and just simply making the overall mood sad and depressing to be around with all of the stress. I have been debating doing this for sometime but was too embarrassed to post this where friends and people i know could see. Thank you to anyone for anything and happy holidays too all.
