    • Hello Melissa, great to hear from you and thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.   You certainly are in the company of many members who have experienced a bleed without the medics finding the source of the bleed, and you are not alone in being so fearful of another bleed. Instances are very few on BTG and you are right in saying that over time you will find yourself accepting this and being less fearful.   This link will give you immediate access to the NASAH Forum http://web.behindthegray.net/forum/16-non-aneurysm-sah-or-perimesencephalic-sah/   and this link will enable you to find this forum http://web.behindthegray.net/topic/6062-melissa/?tab=comments#comment-124679   Please continue to keep us informed as you recover, and in particular make a comment on the SAH/Stroke Anniversaries form when you reach 2 years.   Best wishes       Subs  
    • Oh WOW Thank you so much .....it has taken me some time to find these replies and I am so happy that I did.   I am coming up on year 2 after my bleed and life is still different and for the most part I'm ok with that.
      I am Thankful to be a live and Thankful to be improving as time goes on. I still have headaches some bad and some not so bad.   Since the bleed I have been back to the ER twice scared that I was having another one to find out that it was just a migraine that I could not get under control. I am truly hoping as time goes on the fear will continue to get less and less. However some nights when my head hurts I am afraid to go to sleep because I'm scared I will not wake up.   After reading these post I do feel better because this is the first time anyone had said they had one without surgery too. So THANK YOU again   Melissa
    • Yes I never knew I had another one until I went for an MRI for Epilepsy and it had bled and healed itself over that is what my Specialist said and he wrote in caps. No need to worry which of course I did lol.   But if I had known about it I would have worried, but when they are small like mine was it was a small bleed so now I am not so stressed out.  As stress is not good for us  (she repeats herself) ha ha xx    Be well all and remember to sing and laugh xxx Best meds out there xxxx  
    • Hey Kels! Lovely to see you back here! Tell the lovely ladies and gents what happened this year for you? Your experiences have helped me believe that anything was possible. Golly! I sound like the introduction to a Disney movie!   JM
