He is in full PTSD mode and even more so since I was obliged to fly home for 10 days...panic, fear of sleeping alone in the house, listening to ever ache, pain, palpitation and cramp...he is lost between what to do and not do (yelled at me this morning for Not letting him vacum the house!)...I am very regretful that I did not insist on him going to the cardiac rehab center...A place where post cardiac patients go for 6hrs/day 5days/week for the 1st 2-4weeks post heart attack...they see dieticians, nutritionists, phisiotherapists, massage therapists, psycologists, sports coachs, learn how to eat, sleep, drink (fluids), exercise etc and what their limits are, what to look out for and beware of etc...
He preferred to skip that step and go strait to the 'I am fine and I can take care of myself' mode...now he is in a panic induced nightmare. (so am I)
I will see the Cardio surgeon next week with him and be able (hopefully) to help him to dial down the drugs and thus the stress...until then, I am on a very, very short leash. drats
ps...I am at least better
