Don't stop exercising!
Believe me when I say that I'm talking to myself more than to you who read this blog. Since my Carvedilol (generic for Coreg) dosage was increased recently (in order to try and get my EF up) I have felt "blah". Very tired, sluggish, and sometimes depressed and fearful. Blaming it on the medication is easy. But what is truly happening is that I have not been exercising. Yes, a short walk most days and a long walk here and there, but no jumping jacks, dancing, weight training, etc. Getting ready for vacation, along with just normal "life" has been getting in the way of my exercise routine. I realize that it is essential with cardiomyopathy that we MUST keep working out. The less we move, the worse we feel, and the worse we feel, the less we move. Vicious cycle - let's break out of it! Here's to your health!
