I am a fairly healthy 54 yo male. I had a heart attack 18 months ago and my life hasn’t been the same since. I was put on blood thinners and almost a year after the heart attack I was admitted to the hospital for internal bleeding. I had just completed orientation for a new job. I had to resign. They discovered I had polyps during the testing. Five months later after being off blood thinners I went in for colonoscopy to have them removed. Two days later I went into ICU for three days and had to be given seven units of blood and one of plasma. That was mid June. I now am afraid to go to another job. I have a fear I won’t be able to walk far enough, stand long enough etc. Everywhere I go I think I can’t do this for three hours, much less five or six. I think a lot of this is in my mind but can’t determine what is mental and what is actually not being able to walk long. My fear has almost made me stay in or close to my home for weeks. I have never known fear like this and desperately need employment. My fear is not being able to do something I have to say I can. If I could just tell future employers that I would be good in time as I gradually get my strength back it would be great. No one will hire someone who might not be able to physically perform the job. Me. Scared and broke. Please help!
