Congratulations and well done for completing the half! I know how hard that would have been, my max is 10 miles. I din't complete that until 18 months post SAH so you've done brilliantly. I can only imagine how you felt when you crossed that line - I am sure there were tears.
You should be really proud! Now have a good rest because I'm sure you'll be feeling it tomorrow xx
I am so soo glad to share with all of you, I just finished a half marathon. I am 7 months post NASAH. Feeling very emotional right now.
Thank you all for the extensive support.
You guys are the first ones I am sharing this with.
I am so glad you found us. I am so sorry to read about what has been going on with you. Trust me I (well everyone here) understand your struggles.
I personally had my SAH followed by Vasospasm when I was 64. I did not have any vision problems, it must be so difficult. But like you I had the "you seem fine" comments which was good in one way but not another.
Sometimes I wish people could see that my balance is off and I don't like people walking quickly past me and I struggle in the kitchen , anyway I think you probably understand.
I am 2 years 3 months out, it is a slow recovery, sometimes i could only see improvement when looking back.
Having a stroke can steal our confidence, making us search it out and reclaim it. As I said it can be slow.
I still feel not satisfied with the information I was given as to what happened to me. It seems a little less important to me as time goes on, but only a little.
There are so many great people here that are so willing to share and listen...they are great...Has been a big help to me, knowing they know, they get it...Take care and try ( I know it is hard) to be patient with yourself..
