I know AF is a pesky, disabling and horrible condition and I don’t want to be in least dismissive of how it affects us- but we rarely hear about people from the forum dying -
I have heard of 2 people in the last week I ‘know’ from my Myasthenia forum who died because of breathing problems because of muscle weakness exacerbated by heat, both in the Midlands and failed by their hospitals through lack of knowledge that when someone presents with slurred speech, and indicates they can’t breath, staggers and falls over they AREN’T always drunk, drugged or having a panic attack - they need, immediate life saving intubation! Sorry I guess I am a bit angry too!
Please people do not assume and avoid if you see someone behave like this - they may need urgent help and I ask because I could very well be that person one day.
Thankful for every beautiful day and very, very sad.
