  5. Hi Curt, I have had Epilepsy since puberty 14 but after I had my SAH 4 they became stronger and just as I was going 2 years without one. I had a really bad one and had MRI and they said I had a re bleed but was 2 small ones and they healed over. Phew !! Still scared me silly but at least I know why the bad Seizure happened xx Wife will get better but it does take time, remember all what others have said and keep moving forward. Slowly but surely we do move on. I knew I was getting better as instead of being pampered I got told to do it myself lol. Good luck Curt and Wife xxxx I still chance my arm lol xxxxx made myself laugh ha xxxx

    Hi Jase, My old life was work get a few bottles of wine on the way home, and I am surprised I had an SAH lol So I do not miss my old life apart from not being able to walk that far nowdays. So if you see an old dear in Sainsbury's being pushed by her hubby ..Yep it is me especially if the air is blue lol xxxx Be well and thank your lucky stars you can spend time with Partner xxxx Without my Hubby I would be lost. So pleased you made it xxxx Welcome to BTG ….The Survivors club. There is a life after a bleed. Well done on being able to run xxxxx
  7. Good Luck Jeff and let us know how you get on. You take care and when possible happy thoughts only All the Best Win xx
  8. Had same as you Jeff used to think mine was a 3 until hubby showed me papers from Hospital. Mine was coiled and then I had a really bad seizure, unlike any other, mind had them since 14 so pretty used to them, now an old dear xx Was different from any other seizure ie more violent and they told me I had another bleed after MRI showed blood on brain. No wonder my Surgeon said no stress !! If we put our heads together we'd be worth a few bob lol. Mine healed themselves xx Listen as Super says to Consultant and take it from there, I had mine in 2009 and find singing happy songs helps, poor family. Still here alive and kicking, wishing you all the best whatever you go with xxxx Remember no stress.

    A sixteen year old's story

    Your words made me well up Sophie, it's a part of my SAH and me now !! Tears at the drop of a Hat !! We are survivors and you have done extremely well for a young girl to put it into words. I hope you have a good life and a happy one, now the world is waiting for Sophie's next instalment. On her survival adventure. Well done you for putting it so concisely as I cannot spell Succinctly lol xxxx Now remember a smile a day keeps the blues away xx All the Best, that old girl with the silly name ...Keep us updated wont you xxx Love Win xxxxxx
  11. Thanks for that post Daffs and Super, it was quite helpful, if I felt like a seizure coming on I used to run to the bar and get 2 wines, well my Sis used to lol. It seemed to last me on the trip home and I know I shouldn't have drunk while on pills, but it was a one off and it got me home safely. xx XXXX

    Hi Charlie, My Daughter found this site while I was in hospital and she put me onto it. My early days were doom and gloom and I was singing songs I wanted played at my funeral!! that's how bad I was. Then I saw people talking laughing and getting on with life and they had been through it and one girl was pregnant. I came on here and went into green room and we spoke and I knew I wasn't the only one. So keep happy, sing and try not to stress as I did in early days and if you are worried come on here, we cannot give medical advice but when you hear "Yes I got headaches in the early days" we then realise it is part of recovery but if ever worried always see Doctor. Welcome to BTG (Behind the Gray) and maybe I wont sing to you lol cannot promise though xxxx Trying to say life goes on and does get better slowly but surely and take no ones problems on and keep happy when possible it all helps in our recovery. Good luck Win xxxx

    Hi Aimee, Try not to stress as my Neuro Surgeon told me stress is bad for us, a few on here have small ones that the hospitals keep an eye on. I found out only recently 2 small ones had bled and healed over and I never knew a thing about it. And as I have had epilepsy since 14 my Epilepsy Doc decided to give me another MRI and he found that out. At first I was scared but all is okay and he said they had healed themselves. Clever little things lol. So remember no stress or worry, sing and be happy, hard to do but we need to think positive xxxx Saying that it is scary I know, but think they will keep an eye on you now xxxx Wishing you all the best xxxxxx Win xxxx
