Scared all the time

I had my fourth ablation in March of this year. Dr. says all is going well according to my ICD interrogation scan. I've tried to explain that my memory is poor and I am extremely forgetful. I feel unwell at least 95% of the time and it takes me 5 1/2 hours to get dressed/ eat breakfast/ do light housework and take my dog out for a short walk. I know I am depressed but don't wish to take medication that might interfere with my heart medications. I know the medical staff is hearing what I say but I'm not sure they are really listening to my concerns. The main thing I keep hearing is that I'm lucky to be alive! I feel there is no real concern for me as an individual and I'm just another baby boom generation person with heart problems. Thanks for letting me write my feelings somewhere that possibly has more understanding from personnal experience.

    YukonDenis0n,
    Nym, hopefully caring for your pet can be restorative for you, day by day. You might add a nurturing therapist or a clinical psychologist to your team to build YOUR team. I plan with my very busy primary physician. My next project is reviewing my new meds with my pharmacist to make certain I'm storing them for potency and taking them at the right time of the day. My friend who had ablation treatments a few years ago is a healthier grandmother, nurturing her family. I hope for the same for you.
