Dying to Live - Interview With Heart Transplant Patient Gaea Shaw

Nov 2006 00:21:39 Listen

Dying to live is a small but extraordinary book written by an even more extraordinary woman named gaea shaw. It is the auto biographical story of a woman who underwent heart transplantation as a result of a gene that caused her to have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a potentially fatal heart defect. Gaea shaw's story is important in that it touches upon several important mental health issues. Among these issues are:

  1. How do you learn to deal with loss and grieving?

  2. How do you deal with the possibility of immediate death in the midst of life?

  3. How do you survive after experiencing depression and mental anguish as a result of a combination of grief, and being informed that you have a heart condition that can result in your death?

  4. How do you cope with the amount of anxiety and panic that is experienced as a result of all of the above factors? In her book, gaea does not deny the fact that she experienced depression, misery, fear, anxiety and even panic on the road to the heart transplant. Rather, she explains how she learned to deal with and quiet those emotions.
