Like "I have CHF and was diagnosed with cardio myopathy 18 years ago. I was given 5 to 10 years and then I would need transplant I beat the odds. I have completely changed my life with diet and exercise and I believe that works. I have now gotten worse and 4 months ago I had a picc line put in and have been on Dobutamine since then. This has made things better as it gives my heart a boost. I am now listed as a 1b on the transplant list and may have to have a VAD put in to get me to the transplant. Turns out that O+ blood is a hard match. Just do what the doctor asks you to do and don't quit. I believe a positive attitude helps more than anything else"
