Happy New Year to you all, hope it was a good one....
I’ve been quiet lately, as some of you may know i had cancer straight after recovering from my ablation, but i am doing well and even managed to get out on the bike recently a few times. My ticker did it’s job and returned to a resting rate quicker than i expected, so all good.
Last night though i got home after a fairly stressful day and suddenly felt the quivering in my chest and took my Kardia and it showed i was in AF, but thankfully it only lasted a couple of minutes then dropped back to 60bpm. Not pleasant, but could’ve been way worse.
But I have come to hardly fear it now, especially as it doesn’t last long, i’m on blood thinners, so the risks are minimal as far as I am concerned. I’ve sent the reading to the arrhythmia nurses, who are good at getting back to me. But i have to say today i feel wiped out, even though it was a short bout.
I think the secret is not to let your fear rule you, when it’s your time it’s your time. I chose to live my life fully and make it like every day is my last.
