Hi I am new here, my name is Jo, I am 56, a registered Nurse working in a prison, which is full on day in day out, I work 11 hour days.
I have been diagnosed with AF, Diabetes type 2, high BP and high cholesterol, prescribed 17.5mg Bisoprolol, Apixaban, Losartin, Metaformin, and a statin.
I am chronically tired, exhausted and at the end of my tether. I have to work, I alone pay the mortgage and bills, I don't get sick pay. But every day I am becoming more debilitated.
Every time I visit my GP they increase the Bisoprolol, I have had a angiograph and echo cardiogram, but no follow up.
Every night I go to bed, terrified that I wont wake up in the morning, as the AF gets worse at night. Every morning I wonder how I will get through another day.
Nobody seems to understand or take me seriously.
I am stuck in this cycle of drugs and anxiety.
Please please give me some advice, anything.
