So I have a heart condition and I’ve been told I can get an ablation done to try to burn away part of my heart which is causing the irregular rhythm. However my anxiety is saying what if my anxiety causes the afib to come back and then I will just die from my heart condition and leave my boys behind? I’m crying as I type this as I know it’s not helpful to think this way and I NEED to get my anxiety under control but I don’t know how to and I’m just in a panic. Any advise how to help myself? Thank you.

Yeah, get some anxiety medication: Propranolol, Hydroxyzine HCL, Clonazepam, maybe Mirtazapine.

In my humble opinion, you're far too anxious to just take deep breaths and try to meditate.
