Is their finical help for people with congestive heart failure?

I am 32, with Dialated Cardiomypoathy/ Congestive heart Failure . I work full time now and the stress of it makes my heart get worse...I am not making enough money (my husband is in the Marine Corp.). I need to bring in more money and I am willing to get a second job, but I know that it will just make my heart worse, and could jeporidze my health. Is their any kind of goverment thing that can help someone like me? Like some kind of finical aid as a sublament so that I don t have to jepordize my health by trying to work a second job? Anyone know of anything that can help me? thank you.

You could try SSI, but I don't think it will ok you right away. I am so sorry about your heart. Just take care of yourself and worry about $ later. You don't have the strength and time to work yourself to death early. Please just stop. Get food stamps and a medical card if you have to. Spend time resting and making memories with your family while you can. You are more important and worth more that any cash you can bring in.

Hi - thanks in advance for any help. A good friend recently had a health scare and has been diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure. His brother feels that living with his cat will be dangerous for his health. I understand many people benefit from pet companionship and wonder if this could be a problem. Any information regarding this situation will be appreciated. Jim

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
