Just had a stint put in my heart and I am anxious about everything to the point not sure what will happen. When I did the heart stress almost had a heart-attack, found out I had 80% blockage in my LAD. Thank goodness I was paying attention to my chest pains and the symptoms for women's heart disease.I am to the point I am scared of anything going on in my body. Please tell me this will go away in time..

Anxiety is really controlled by how you respond to a situation. People respond in many different ways to this.

One of the best ways to help overcome this is going through cardiac rehab.

That is a serious of session where you will exercise will being monitored. That helps build confidence. Also there will be educational programs on your meds, diet, etc.

Request that your doctor refer you to a cardiac rehab program.
