My AF has increased to an episode most days - Doctors still fiddling with my medications to control it. I'm 67 and retired last year from Hospice nursing, I'm in a new relationship and was looking forward to travelling with my new partner and having a new, fulfilling life. I love playing table tennis twice a week, walking, gardening, had even bought a folding bike to begin a new activity etc but now AF seems to have robbed me of all that - either I'm tired with the medications or an episode is triggered by the slightest of physical activity. Again this morning I tried getting ready for table tennis but just preparing breafast put me into debilitating palpitations and dizziness. I feel great grief that the life I had expected has been snatched away - and like many the message from doctors seems to be 'Lots of people have it, you'll just have to live with it, try not getting so anxious!!!' All of which makes me feel patronised and not taken seriously. Sorry folks, am feeling bit down this morning after yet again making plans to have a little exercise only to be dashed.
