Steps to recovery: life after a heart event
Share |
After you return from the hospital, you will need lots of rest to recover from the trauma of a heart event.  Depending on the severity your heart event, it can take weeks to months to resume your normal activities. In addition to the time you will need to heal physically, you will need time to recuperate emotionally and psychologically from the shock of your brush with death. Your moods may go up and down, you may burst into tears, you may snap at family members. It's all part of trying to cope with the traumatic ordeal that you have just been through. Don't let anyone rush your emotional recovery - you can and will work it through at your own pace.
