    • Thanks again to the both of you. It's quite a lonely situation to be in, outwardly you look okay, only if you look closely can you see the stumbles, the peering to read something, and the annoyance at some noise. It's strange because I wear a hearing aid, so my hearing is very poor anyway, yet since this happened noises seem to really grate.   I feel I'm complaining, and I'm not. it's just I don't know if this is how it should be and there doesnt seem to be anyone to ask. I'm looking forward getting to know the group, so again , thank you for such a warm welcome. 🙂
    • What a lovely reply, thank you Tina.  Am doing not too bad, get tired easily, have some headaches and would say my memory is definitely not what it was.  Am not sure if these things have anything to do with the aneurysm.  What I have noticed is that I don't seem to have any concept of time, like it's 5months since it happened, if you asked me what I've done in those months, I honestly couldn't tell you. I just take each day one at a time, glad to still be here, yet there are days I feel empty....if that's the right way to put it.  
    • Hi Cat,   Welcome to BTG!   Everything you describe is par for the course.  You are still in the early stages of your recovery journey so just take each day one at a time, step by step.  Perhaps keep a diary so you can plot your progress and look back on it to see the progress you've made as time passes.   Stay hydrated, keep talking to people and keep in touch with your doctors and us.  We'll help you as best we can.  As Tina says we can't give medical advice and that's because we are not doctors, not because we don't want to.  What might be right for me might not be right for you, so that's why we don't do it.   But we have been down the road you're on - so any time you've got five minutes, come on here and talk to us, there's usually someone who'll reply soon.   Macca
    • Cat, you are in the very early stages of recovery and just taking it one day at a time is the very best way. Pace yourself and listen to your body and drink plenty of water. I think we all have good days and bad days, its only natural after going through such a life threatening trauma.   So pleased you found BTG We look forward to hearing more from you.   Take care Tina xx
