Dilated Cardiomyopathy @ 23

hi there. i have recently found out i have dilated cardiomyopathy. i was tested as my mother was diagnosed with it 3years ago. which came as a shock. even more of a shock was the fact that my test came back positive too. i have had a few different tests and all have led to the same conclusion.

i am a 23 year old female with one young child. i have been researching DCM online since but never really goes in. i just feel like im looking at words but they mean nothing, i was hoping to talk to some real people that have been or are going through the same thing as me.

i have a consultant meeting for the first time after my tests but ts not until april 2013 so i was hoping someone could explain DCM a little better then all these long words that make no sense to me

please help
Nikki
