    • I was told I'll never walk but I do but the botty always sticks out lol and after a while back aches and then neck lol   We will get there sooner or later, never give up and when down come on here and give vent to how you are feeling.   We have all been there and got the scars although they don't show, but we will get there eventually ..keep going forward and see how far you have come.   Best wishes Win xxxxx  
    • Hi I will be three years in after my suberachnoid brain heamorage in November.   I have a few weeks where I think I've turned a corner and think woo I'm on the mend then I have a couple of weeks when I'm really tired, headaches and feeling a bit wuzzy and generally feeling unwell, I thought I'd be feeling much better now and feel it all very frustrating.   Everyone says how well I look but just wish I felt it.    Pat
    • As usual Daffs writes a good post, I mean it Daffs and it doesn't hurt if we do not cook, or we rest up for a while as we always say to each other listen to your body.   I know you do not have the luxury of being able to go bed when body tells you as you have children, good job you have your Mum to help you Daffs and when body/brain tells you full steam ahead, take Mum and you out or what you do with Mum.    You must have been wiped out to stay off here lol.  Now remember to rest up and don't be brave be a lazy moo for a few days, as that's what I do lol xxxxx  Keep smiling and singing and get Mum to join in xxxx   Sorry you are on a downer but I know my Shunt pard, she will  be okay after a rest, so be happy and never give up as I need my shunt pals for my  barometer head days.  Now smile and sing and do not overdo it.  Wins Orders !!! Take care Pal xxx feet up and rest xxx   Tap dance coming up later, the one where I slip into the sink xxxx  
    • Brilliant post Daff, I can also relate to this, I have at times pushed myself beyond my limits and I have paid for it, I still want to try and push myself to achieve things, sometimes though I do go above and beyond what I should and then I am no good to anyone for days.   2 years down the line and yes I can do more than I could in the first year but I still feel I need to be doing more. I was scared to walk my dog alone in the first year, I can do that now and in doing that it has helped me to gain a little more confidence.   I do things a lot slower than I used to, I used to scurry around like an idiot rushing from A to B, I just am not able to do that anymore because I know it will have consequences for me.   As Macca said he still gets there just the same only at a different pace, I have to agree with him. I used to be able to deal with any amount of stress, can`t do it now and I try to avoid it if I can. I still have trouble coping with a lot of people and noise, although I am getting a little better with that, it`s still a work in progress for me, I`m sure I`ll get there in time, if I don't well I will just keep trying to find different ways to cope with it.   A very thought provoking post Daff, thank you for sharing it, Love Michelle xx
    • Yep can relate, you are lucky you got meals on wheels when I have that still have to cook can never totally switch off....
