Keep up with everything going on in the pulmonary hypertension community with news, stories, events, educational information and ways to get involved.
While I didn't fall into a full depression upon hearing that I had PAH, I did do some moping! Looking at the "evidence" of how long I probably would live, and stuck not being able to breathe, a person would feel like moping. But fortunately, as I was moping, I also found ways to cope with the problems I was having. Now I have hope due to the medical help, the special PAH drug I am on, and I just found out that I am going to have to have heart surgery to repair my heart. So I have gone from some moping, to coping, to having hope that I will one day soon maybe be able to function and feel much better than I do now. Best to everyone out there dealing with PAH, or any other situation you may find yourself in.
Douglas- thank you so much for sharing your journey with mope, cope and hope- we appreciate your openess and are walking beside you in the PH journey
I find moping means I'm self-absorbed so instead to cope means in spite of circumstances of disease I plan to carry on. The hope I see is that there will be a cure in my lifetime but if not, at least prevent future generations from getting PH.
