CHD and Your Life

We like to think of this section as the ‘Survival Guide’ to living with CHD. It has a lot of the info you need to get the most out of every day. Regular exercise and healthy eating are great starts to feeling fit and healthy. But there’s more to know and that’s why we’ve included stuff that is especially helpful for young people with CHD, including info on school, work, relationships and sex, traveling, driving, alcohol, marijuana, drugs, tattoos and piercings.

You’re in the driver’s seat now and this info will help you choose the best path to health and happiness.

You can read through page by page, or be totally random and choose the topics you like first and come back to others later. Whatever you choose, take your time, and enjoy the ride!
