My AF story in Woman and Home Magazine!!

My AF journey is featured in an article in March edition of Woman and Home magazine out today. It is called 'heartbeat diary' and follows my journey that started in 2004, and here I am three ablations later! It was written in conjunction with my EP, Spire hospital in Leeds, and a health editor and involved me going to London for a photoshoot! I hope it helps people who are just starting their AF journey and details some research on the horizon. I am available for autographs!!!!

I've found that W & H always has well researched health articles. Particularly interesting to read what is on the horizon with AF.

I went from being treated for stress for two years to accidental finding of AF in late 2010 to failed cardiversion aborted ablation due to anomaly in heart to nothing on echo to TOE finding tumours in my heart resulting in open heart surgery and surgical ablation late 2013 followed by lots of arrythmias and pacemaker late 2014. Op was videoed I believe as tumours v rare. Here I am pills and pacemaker 62 and gym 5/6 times a week 😊😊😊

Hi, I looked at the magazine yesterday, thought the article was very good, much better than a newspaper famed for its medical drama stories 😀

Just bought the magazine today. It's a very good article and is very readable with a lovely photo of you. If just one person thinks 'hey, that's how I feel' then it has done its job.

If only the article could be spread to other publications nationwide . . .
