Depressed about Afib
I was on my way home from the store after being excited about making smoothies, trying healthy recipes, etc., when I got a call from the EP's nurse saying I had an episode of afib that showed up on my home monitor check which lasted 10 hours and the EP was suggesting blood thinners. Found out Eliquis is $47/month/prescribed medicine by EP. I became sad, worried, and full of doom and gloom. Generally I'm a very happy and active person, love estate sales and selling vintage items on line, but this news has made me afraid, not knowing when or if it will happen again. Does it mean my heart is even more damaged (had pacemaker implanted 10 years ago due to bradycardia)? Also had breast cancer twice and things are stable and just trying to enjoy my life. It's so hard sometimes to deal with these serious issues and it feels like there's more and more pills to take with every diagnosis. Can anyone share some positive thoughts or advice? Thanks so much!
