Hi - My husband aged 45 had a heart attack 4 weeks ago. He now has a stent in, is on a cocktail of medication and has gone back to work and telling everyone that he is fine.
Sadly though he is clearly not fine and we are all walking on egg shells at home around him. He has gone from a pretty cheery guy to a grumpy, angry, snappy, seemingly more stressed individual. When you challenge him on his behaviour, it is everyone else around him that is apparently causing his foul mood and he will not admit that maybe, just maybe this is all part of the rehabilitation of having had a heart attack and that mental and physical go together.
I would love some advice on how to get him to see that he needs to get his ego out of the way and face what is really going on and what has happened to him. To consider all this from a mental perspective.
Any thoughts please?
