    Hi everyone, It has been awhile but I've been on a ride that is hard to explain. Hit my seven yr mark this year in April and that is a big accomplishment. However, I started having dizzy spells and one day I felt like either a neuron finally found its mate, in my brain, or some electrical current shorted. It was not painful but did give me a sensation of twirling quickly and then stopped. Scared me to death but I knew it was not a bleed because there was no pain. But, I was like, "what was that?" Head was heavy and hurt and kept feeling dizzy. Went to dr and had a MRI and all clear. Then I realized a few things, I was taking an abundance of vitamins, my stress level was high because of a new project I said I'd work, and my daughter has had some health issues we need to combat, not to mention she is almost 15 and sassy. I stopped taking the majority of the vitamins and started feeling better. Now, my job. I have complained throughout the years I need to stop working and I need to push away from stress but something always brings me back to my work. With the last two months, I held on tight to my job because of the unfortunate folks that have lost theirs and my heart goes out to them. The other is this sense of independence I feel when I work. I cannot say I love it but it's what I know and maybe that's the problem. As for my daughter, she is my heart and worry about her future. I just read in an article about a woman that had a SAH and she feels it is due to stress and lack of sleep. It's scary to think what stress can do to the body. It tortures the body and brain. So, I went to see a neuro psychologist and had one session with him and now cannot seem to reach him again so I guess I am seven years too late talking about what happened. So, that's done. So so here I am talking to you because, well, it makes me feel better so thank you for listening. ☺️ iola.

    Hi Iola congrats on 7 years lovely to hear from you. I am not sure about stress causing a SAH but I am well aware of the effects of stress post bleed. I think Macca is correct with his delegation suggestion and it may be something to consider. I have had numerous problems with my return to work and a lot of it has been caused by stress. My neuro-psychologist has been very helpful with suggestions on avoiding stress and reducing working hours is probably the one that has helped most. Pre bleed I worked 41 hour weeks, since then I have gradually reduced my working hours and am just about to start a new job on 22.5 hours. Hopefully I will manage that until I retire. Although I initially fought against less hours as I considered it 'giving in', now I realise that it makes life much more manageable. Take good care, Clare xx
