  1. Long time no speak everyone. Well its July 2020 and since my last message, the frequency of those mild, foggy heachaches has returned to normal. i.e. rarely. In fact, apart from the weight gain and potential damage to my liver from lockdown... I am doing fine. Whilst Covid-19 does not appear to present any increased risk to NASAH survivors (I'm perimesencephalic FYI) I am not taking any chances. Stay safe everyone!

  2. It's been about two years since I've been on the forum here., and 2-1/2 years since my wife had her SAH. If you read my previous posts, you'll see that she was generally very fortunate for her outcome. The visual disturbances I mentioned before are largely gone. The chronic headaches are still there but not as bad and being managed with medication. The doctors say she's essentially "healed". She's hardly missed a beat with her work as a songwriter and musician and gets into her home studio most days. But, she says she still feels changed. Yesterday, she said she was glad I u

  3. I haven't been around here for a very, very long time. Life with children (13 years and 4years old as of today), family and all the rest is a busy thing.

The doctors told me I was fine. I knew I wasn't "fine". But it took me a while to realized that what they meant was there was nothing they could do for me. Thank goodness I finally found BTG and all the helpful folks here. So, I figure

  4. Hi Veronica, Thank you for posting this answer. It is pure class, and is a fantastic response to a difficult problem. You show a lot of experience and understanding. It is also interesting Dramblys, for us to remember that carers too, have their own issues to deal with, and that SAH sufferers are not the sole keepers of pain and problems. The world isn't perfect and it is often a cruel and unforgiving place. Life can be a struggle for many of us, and it can be a difficult job to prevail. I think what matters is that we are all able to offer care and compa

  5. Hello Dramblys Like you, I haven't been on BTG for a long time, and also saw Sarah's post about Win's passing. I am so very sad for her, and her family. Win was such a beacon of hope to so many, with her funny, gracious posts and her generous heart. She was one of the first to respond to my first post, and I will always be grateful to have known her through BTG. My husband had a non aneurysm SAH just over 12 months ago. Like your wife, he has made an amazing recovery. However, he has also endured the typical chronic headaches, and even though they have improved, th
