Hi, I am new here, I have felt there is no support for Heart attack patients until I came across this site. I had my first Heart attack in 2003 followed by 3 stents, it was a major heart attack and I was off work for 9 weeks. The following year I had a quadruple bypass which was very traumatic for me ( I am a wimp) and have had hardly any support apart from a exercise class which lasted a couple of months. This year I had another heart attack and 6 stents. I had a previous stent in 2009. I have been mentally very unstable suffering from anxiety and panic attacks since last heart attack. I believe it was the new medication I have been on that caused this and have since changed medication and now feel better, However I don't know anyone in a similar situation and feel alone at times although my family have been very supportive they can't put themselves in my shoes. It has been good to find this site, I feel I am not alone any more.
