Lack of energy is very broad.
Depression itself might interfere with the heart disease management. It is important that you address it with your cardiologist and someone who specializes in health psychology. Health psychologist might help you work through emotional underpinnings of the disease and disease management. Important to keep with your medication regimen and medical appointment.
