The result was four categories : To Feel limited in daily life ; That role is changing and in need of support ; Not to be taken seriously and lose control and ; to accept and deal with the new situation. , Results showed that women affected by heart failure experienced physical limitations , with fatigue as the biggest constraint . Ignorance about the disease caused the women felt anxious , insecure and that they often sought other underlying explanations for their symptoms.
