In today’s episode we talk about how you may feel after having a heart event and begin to process just exactly what happened.
It’s normal to have strong physical or emotional reactions after your heart event, but for some these feelings don’t go away.
We talk openly about trauma, and post-traumatic stress and ways you can receive support. We hear from young hearts members Biana Beetham and Jackie Stripling as well as expert Dr Liza Morton.
