I have had AF for almost 2 years and attacks are highly symptomatic. Have anticoagulant and calcium channel blocker.
Went all summer with the kids without an attack. But then my husband lost his contract our small business has gone into receivership and we are in so much trouble I can't even begin to explain. The oil industry in which my husband works has basically gone down the drain and to get any work at all will mean a huge family move to the middle East or elsewhere. This is all supposing he can find a job at all.
So of course, because things can always get worse, my AF is killing me. I have very little escape from it and today for example I have crawled round Aldi and that's about it. I can't speak or share anything with my husband and young kids I just go into myself when I feel this ill. No point seeing Dr as she can't do more.
I hate this illness and I especially hate thst it doesn't let you ever forget about it when life is already at its most challengjng.
I know I'm going to die way before my time (I'm currently 50) because of what this and stress are doing to me, but sometimes I feel that release can't come soon enough.
