I will not leave AF the same person I came into it. I have had some form of AF all my life (I remember the hypoglycemia attacks as a kid), but enough stress let me hit bottom with it.
I have left no stone unturned- physically, emotionally, and spiritually, it continues to be a life-altering journey. It is fire to walk through, but I know I will leave it better than I came into it.
When I get back to "normal" I suspect it will feel like someone just returning from a war or getting out of jail. The green of the grass, the view of the sky, the fresh air...I just look forward to appreciating all the small things again.
