The pyschological impact of heart disease

The Psychological impact of heart disease
This a large subject that is not often talked about. I was discussing this with a colleague today. Patients who in particular suffer heart attacks (where the blood supply to the heart it stopped and they commonly present with chest pain) can be greatly impacted. It is not only the body that needs healing it is also the mind. 
Questions like is it going to happen again?  Am I going to die? Will I lead a normal life? These can weigh heavily on people and cause them to go over it again and again. 
Counselling can help and sometimes exposes wider lifestyle changes that need to be made. It is something that should be discussed more openly and in a non-judgemental way.
