  4. Hi Kay A very warm welcome to you and your Fiance. So pleased you found BTG, you will find lots of helpful information and caring friendly support here. Thank goodness your Fiance and the nurses did not let you be discharged and you saw another Doctor. So often we seem to be misdiagnosed ! You are still in the early stages of recovery, how are you both doing? Wishing you well with your recovery. Look forward to hearing more from you. Take care Tina xx
  5. Hi Jan sending you a huge hug and hope that today a better one for you Lots of love Tina xx
  6. Hi Topsy, So sorry you are feeling so depressed and tearful at the moment. Sending hugs and positive vibes your way. Bless you, with all that has happened to you again so recently, its not surprising you feel this way. If you are worrying about taking the antidepressants make an appointment and speak to your Neurologist or GP for peace of mind. Take care & let us know how you are doing. Tina xx
  7. Hi Keith, really good to see you here, hope you are doing well xx
  8. Hi Laura Lovely to see you on here and send lots of love back to you xx
  9. Hi Kimberly A very warm welcome to BTG Firstly, a huge well done to you for getting back to work. Brain fatigue/fog is something many of us suffer from, it is so hard sometimes to gauge your limits. Your brain soon tells you when to stop and slow down. You are doing the right thing by resting up and listening to your body. For me, the fatigue is always there, i have just learnt the signs and how to manage my limits better over the years. Mind you, still catches me out sometimes Have you been to see your Dr about regulating heat & cold? They may be able to refer you to someone that can help? Look forward to hearing more from you. Take care Tina xx
  10. Hi Casey Great news all checked out ok with your ticker and no blockage causing the dreaded fatigue It's good that they did investigate other avenues and it has given you peace of mind in one respect regarding your ticker, but as you say, guess they will never understand. Take care, go steady. Tina xx
  11. Hi Kim A very warm welcome to BTG. Here is the link to 'A Letter From Your Brain' that Casey mentioned above. We look forward to hearing more from you. Take care Tina xx
  12. Hi Palhuc A very warm welcome to BTG It is very good to read your hubby has turned a corner and recovering fast. I really hope he learns the swallow test and gradually builds up his strengh to walk again soon. Everyones recovery is different, but all the signs are positive. Some recover very quickly, others it takes a lot longer. 5 months is still very early in recovery, so your hubby is doing well I hope you are doing ok and remembering to look after you too? Take care & let us know how you are both doing. Tina xx
  13. Hi Kinda A very warm welcome to BTG ! At 4 months you are still in the early stages of recovery and as Casey says listen to your body, pace yourself and rest up plenty. Drinking water certainly helps with the headaches as Jess has explained. A phased return to work often helps to find your limits and what you can and cant cope with in the early stages. I dont know if this is something you can do in your line of work? Gradually build up the amount of work you take on. Your body is definitely telling you when you have pushed too much. Go steady and and let us know how you are doing. Take care Tina xx
  14. Hi Liz A very warm welcome to BTG, so glad you found us. Some great advice from Clare above. I had an SAH and had all the symptoms you are having too. It is scary but things will get better. Listen to your body and be kind to yourself. It just takes time and getting to know your limits. Its great you have your wife, sister & dogs around to support you. It is such a very worrying time for them too. You will find lots of helpful information here and friendly caring support Feel free to ask any questions and to join in the daily banter in the Green Room in the members area. As Clare says, you are not alone you have us now Take care and we look forward to hearing more from you. Tina xx
  15. Hi Shobs & Sandeep A very warm welcome to BTG ! So glad you found us. Some really great replies from the others above. Good days and bad days we are here for you. Keep in touch, we are a friendly bunch and we look forward to hearing how you are both doing. Take care Love Tina xx
