AF Diaries

Too often AF can result in a person feeling ‘Alone’ and ‘Frightened’. The ‘AF diaries’ offer a detailed insight into an individual’s experiences of life with symptomatic AF.

The sharing of experiences through case stories and diary accounts not only reduces the loneliness and fear that this condition can cause, but can also help others in becoming more AF aware. From ‘Knowing Your Pulse’ and detecting AF through to seeking diagnosis, support, information and access to appropriate treatments; valuable and essential information in the journey to managing AF.

Can you help? Please consider sharing your experiences of AF with others. Contact Lisa Cartin - lisa@afa-us.org for further information.
