My Story, mum of 4


Hello everyone.I am new here. I am 36 years old .I am a mother of 4 and I am a SAH survivor which happen on July 7,2017. They told my mom I would be in hospital for 6 month, not be able talk or walk or remember anyone. I died over 5 times, had severe seizures , a stroke and brain surgery( coiling) I was scared at first when I got out of NIcu but I see there are others like me.


The happy part about this story is I'm a miracle to be here and I am able to do all the things the doctors said I wasn't going to be able to do because of what I went through. The sad part is that my doctor failed to tell me about my Anureym 2 years ago that showed perfectly on my MRI on 7-10-15 because I woke up 7-7-15 and lost my hearing all of a sudden in my left ear and they thought it was a brain tumour.  I got it back 4 days later with prednisone but They told me there was nothing on the MRI but the brain surgeon said he saw it clear as day and all of this could had been prevented.


I now have PTSD and severe anxiety ....and the part my SAH happens two years to the day of when I lost my hearing so hearing 7-7-15 SAH 7-7-17 and my oldest son birthday is 7-3-97 and he was born at 24 weeks and weighed only 1 pound 12 oz. 13 in long. He had just turned 20 years old before this happened and they said he wouldn't make it either but we are both survivors.

Thank you everyone for listening.

Hi Amanda :)

A very warm welcome to BTG.


Wow ! You have certainly been through it and indeed a miracle, bless you.

It is still very early days in recovery for you, not surprising you have  PTSD and severe anxiety after all you have had to go through.


You have certainly come to the right place for lots of helpful information and caring support.

A lot of 7's in your dates, i see them as a positive :)


Take care and look forward to hearing more from you.
