When someone close to you suffers from heart disease, the impact can be devastating for the patient, family and friends. Once the medical emergency has passed, a wide spectrum of emotional problems may begin.
Today's heart disease patient needs to address these issues. If ignored, the patient and other family members alike can become hostage not only to the physical limitations of heart disease, but the emotional limitations as well.
Full cardiac recovery requires both a healthy body and a healthy emotional state, beginning the process of regaining a sense of control over life.

Severe cardiovascular disease can be emotionally crippling. Budnick, a psychotherapist specializing in patients with heart disease and their families, addresses this highly original study to those who must grapple with the uncertainties and fears created by a life-threatening disorder. In simple, readily comprehensible language, he provides reassurance and offers coping mechanisms for adjusting to the many changes necessitated by the illness. Drawing on both personal (having witnessed his father and sister succumb to heart disease) as well as professional experience, Budnick offers succinct advice regarding the changing roles of each family member. His very practical book is recommended for public libraries as well as medical libraries that permit patient access.
