My story began at the age of 15 years old. This is when I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Atrial Fibrillation. Not only that but it is permanent and fast. I live on beta blockers to control the heart rate so it’s not as fast. Afib has likely been a problem for me for my entire life, except I used to revert back to Regular Sinus Rhythm. My body no longer does this(hence the beta blockers) and previous Cardiologists lied to me so I never got an ablation done. I have many other medical conditions that are likely caused from the Afib and I cannot get employment. I am still looking for the Silver Lining here. However, one can live a fairly normal life with Afib — I do Martial Arts and try to remain somewhat active. I don’t have employment because employers don’t like hearing a potential employee has a heart condition. Anyways, I accept my health issues for what they are; always continuing to keep my chin up.
