  8. I'm Glad I Don't Remember

    I had been having bad headaches for about a week before my bleed, which I thought were my sinuses. I went to see my GP on the Friday and he agreed with me and gave me tablets. I carried on as normal through the weekend and went to a car boot sale on the Sunday.   I remember my head hurting and having a stiff neck. When I got home I prepared dinner and planted some flowers I had bought. I don't really remember much of the next week, my husband had popped to the local shop and returned to find me unconscious on our sitting room floor. He called an ambulance. I'm told I kept returning to consciousness and repeating what I was saying, the ambulance staff thought I was drunk.   I was taken to Winchester hospital, I was now being very sick. Here I was given a brain scan and then rushed to Southampton hospital. I was scanned again and my family were told to expect the worse. The next day I had a six hour operation and had coils put in my head and had a drain put in to drain the blood. I then slept for nearly two weeks, waking up each time to not knowing where I was and trying to pull out the drain and drips. A very scary time for my family. On week three, I started to improve and could stay awake for a couple of hours at a time.   By the end of that week, l was allowed home, as long as I promised to rest and follow the rules. I have been home three months now, I'm still tired most of the time and don't feel like me anymore but I'm told I've made a amazing recovery. I still have two very small aneurysms and I'm having another scan in December

  11. The Day My Life Changed!

    It was 0750 hrs on 25th April 2014, my husband had just left to take our 13yr old daughter to school, then he was heading out for the day to work. I was left at home with my 7yr old daughter getting her ready for school and myself ready for work. Had finished cleaning the kitchen after cooking scrambled egg for breakfast. What happened next changed my life forever. It is still a blur and I can't remember much. What I do remember was the pain in my head was excruciating never experiencing anything like it before.

  14. Denial

    My story is a bit embarrassing and I guess could be filed under the category of why physicians should not treat themselves.
