From the Heart Summary

From the Heart: A Woman's Guide to Living Well with Heart Disease by Kathy Kastan

After undergoing emergency bypass surgery at age forty-two, Kathy Kastan found her world shifting in unexpected ways. Everything-her sense of well being, her relationships, her daily routine, even her body image-seemed to change. Doctors could help her recover physically, but she had to find new ways to recover emotionally and re-create a happy, healthy life. The first book written for women dealing with the emotional repercussions of heart disease, From the Heart will guide women forward with optimism and courage, addressing such questions as: How do you regain a strong self-image? Grapple with your fears? Talk to the people you love about your illness? And learn to trust your body again? Combining Kastan's personal experience and expertise as a therapist with stories from scores of other women with heart disease, this invaluable resource will help women reduce stress, give up hard-to- break habits, adapt to new lifestyles-and thrive again.
