Knowing your Cardiomyopathy – Becoming independent
When you were a child, your parent or carer will have managed your cardiomyopathy, taking you to appointments, keeping up with treatment plans and knowing all there is to know about your condition and how it affects you.
As you get older, perhaps, you are moving away from home, going off to college, university or starting a new job. This can be a difficult time for parents to let go and working together, will be an important part of becoming independent.
You may have started this process at your hospital appointments through a transition programme.
