I have read lots of lovely posts about supportive families but would like to ask ---- is there anyone out there like me all alone. Not seeking sympathy as, although I am an 80 lady, I do keep busy and happy going out every day (puffing on my way - not ciggies just breathless) but when AF rears its ugly head - I am all alone.
The pressure comes with making a decision about AF - do I call 111 - how long do I wait to call 111 etc. I ignore the breathlessness and dizzy spells but when AF does strike - I do then feel lonesome. I am currently having a good run (hope I am not speaking too soon).
Does anyone living alone have strategies to deal with such occasions.
