A Fib set off my defibrillator
Saturday morning at 4 am my ICD started to shock me for a period of 7 fires due to an A Fib issue. I have been awake now for over 24 hours. Have been admitted to hospital. I have been put on Amiodarone and a blood thinner. I am so exhausted yet so in fear of another shock. As I am grateful my ICD certainly did it's job, a mess I am. I am out of A fib now. My ICD was implanted almost 8 months ago and I went through a rough period of depression. A virus attacked my heart was the reason for my ICD. They gave me an Ambien to sleep but it had no effect. Thank you for listening. It's been a very long day and night. I was doing so well. I hope I don't fall backwards in my happiness that I felt after my depression. Again, thank you for reading.
