  • Depression and anxiety worsening due to HCM

    I am a 19 year old male from South Africa and have found that my HCM is worsening my mental state I don't know where I should post this but I want to vent and talk a bit.

    First off I was diagnosed with HCM October last year and so far I am depressed that I can no longer do what my friends do like enjoy parties with alcohol (18 is the legal drinking age in South Africa) like I used to. It also makes my anxiety crazy to know I have a weak heart I don't know what to do anymore and I feel like I no longer enjoy life.
