I am sorry to
hear what you have been through. I was around your age when I collapsed without
warning and ended up being diagnosed with’ mild ‘heart failure and that is bad
enough to live with – you have clearly had a terrible time with this. Like you
I was just discharged with tablets and left to get on with it. There seems to
be a total lack of support for heart failure patients.
I just wanted
to mentioned I am surprised that you are not entitled to a disabled bus pass as
most English county councils seem to give one on the basis that you have or would be refused a driving licence due to physical fitness
and you say you have lost your driving licence.
council doesn’t always make this very clear and it is easy to assume that as
you can physically walk you don’t meet the criteria – it may be worth checking
with your county council again?
