    • Hello Karin.... worth having a second read of Clare's comment. You suffered from brain trauma in December, and had it been most other medical issues you might well expect a high degree of recovery.   This is very different .... your brain doesn't  follow these principals.  You want everything to return to what it was pre bleed, however your brain has been damaged and may never recover fully.... Since your bleed, it has been carrying out alternative routes in its mind blowingly complicated work processes and your desire to be normal again may well put it under so much strain .... resulting in how you are now feeling.     Clare suggests that being pragmatic and willing to accept that letting your brain somehow reroute.... in the knowledge that by doing so, tough but practical decisions will be required on your part.... Well maybe, just maybe that will require life and work balances having to be re-evaluated    Worth Contemplating.   Many members of BTG have faced similar issues with varied outcomes depending on the decisions they made.   It's perfectly natural to have that desire for life as it was.... it's courageous to acknowledge that change may be the best 'policy'.   🤔 🤔   Subs   PS Re. Computer screens ... Mrs Subs also mentioned that a colleague at work had his screen changed so that the background was black and the writing white ... interesting!

    • Also make sure that there are no neon lights near or illuminating the screen. It's not uncommon for neon lights, especially in an office environment, to operate at a frequency that, although invisible to the naked eye, actually clashes with the frequency of the screen. It's basically the principle of strobe lighting, and can cause headaches and drowsiness if you're sensitive to this type of light.   It's relatively easy to check, but get someone else to do it.. stand looking at the screen from about 5 feet away, then nod vigorously. If you see dark lines moving up and down the screen, then you will need to get the tubes swapped out, preferably for LED type. But please do take lots of breaks,
