For me personally it was somewhere to come to make sense of it all when diagnosed at 32. I like to think I've reassured offered insight into things having had three ablation and a dozen cardioversions as "payback" for all the helpful advice and encouragement I got.
It's very good to know you can sound off or ask for opinion on things from people who have been there without troubling a professional or allowing yourself to be equipped with knowledge to help at consultations.
I've also found it useful when people have been a "few steps ahead" of me starting meds or recovering from procedures to see what may be in store.
Thanks for being such a great community
