In need of encouragement

I was diagnosed with AFIB on May 10th, 2019. I am  42 years old, and I am a single parent to my five year old son. I am terrified. I don’t know what the future holds for me with this condition. I have never been ill before and never been on meds until now. I’m now on Eliquis and Amiodorone. When I first began taking theses meds last week they made me nauseous and gave me headaches that wouldn’t subside. I work in corrections and I’m afraid to be in such an aggressive environment while on blood thinners. I have to work and make a living. I’m also scheduled to start nursing school in September. Due to AFIB, should I put School on hold. I want to see my son grow into a man. I feel devastated by this diagnosis. I see a EP at The University of Chicago Hospital in June. What kinds of questions should I ask!!! I thank everyone in advance for their time.
