Houston, Texas Show full bio

Pamela Guillory was diagnosed with congestive heart failure in August 2011. Since Pamela received her diagnosis, she has had to make several lifestyle changes. which involved increasing her exercise and maintaining a healthier diet. Pamela credits her local Support Network, WomenHeart Houston, for allowing her to share her story and offering much needed support to adjust to having heart disease.   “If I could leave you with one message, it would be not to judge a book by its cover. If you’re feeling strange yet everything else on the outside looks just fine – still have it checked out.  You never know what may be causing any uncommon issues you experience.   I cannot emphasize enough the importance of exercise. Another message is to always remember that doctor of yours is there for you, take ownership of your visits, ask the right questions, write them down if you need to, and follow up with them.”
