  1. Hi, The others advice really helped me. I am doing counseling via tel-med with a doctor who has worked with clients with brain bleeds. It is mostly helpful. I may try another doctor. I am almost 6 most post NASAH. I pushed myself back in month 3 because thought I should get ready to go back to work full-time. The ringing in my head increased in volume and doesn't stop...However, the greatest gift I experience is acting kinder and more accepting of myself and not setting goals...my body is the guide. I wish you well on your journey.

  2. The hardest thing is accepting the 'New You' but once you can you can then move forward... took me a long time to do that...

  3. Hello Phil, please don`t apologise for sharing how you are feeling. As has been said so many times, we are all here for each other, and getting support and help through the `down` moments is one of the main reasons this BTG site was formed. I was just revisiting your first post when you joined BTG in March 2017. You like many have been very fortunate to survive at all. I am sure you will agree that much of the great advice given by our members back then still applies to your situation today. Working in a high powered stressful environment and taking part in the

  4. Great advice above. I will only add that you should not expect to get better every day, but you should get better every year for a while. It is a rollercoaster ride of emotions and frustrations. However, I do believe that you will get better with time. I did but it took a while (like over a year) for my memory to start to improve again. Please be patient and stay well. Chris

  5. Jean, I agree and the best piece of advice that I was given, was to measure your progress from the day that you left hospital ... rather than before the bleed, otherwise you set yourself up to fail ... which was what I was doing for quite some time....failing and feeling utterly miserable and despondent with it. Hence why this website exists, through my own failing and falling flat... and having to come to terms with the fact that I was going to have to take baby steps forward and maybe a few steps back with it. I found that once I became a bit kinder to myself and measured my expe

  7. Hi Carolyn Some great advice from everyone, i can only agree with what everyone has said. Slow and steady is the way to go with this, your body and your brain have suffered great trauma and they really do need lots of time to recover, i am 6 years down the line and I remember spending much of my first 2 years sleeping and doing things at a very slow pace. I did try and push myself but I did suffer for doing that, i was given some excellent advice when I first joined BTG, that advice was to listen to your body and your brain, they will let you know whe

  8. Hi Carolyn, The thing I found different to deal with was that this is unlike any sickness or injury I had ever experienced....I couldn't gage my improvements as they didn't seem to go in a straight line...I found looking back, say over several months and then a year, was my best gage. Carolyn, I also had to start looking at where I was presently as opposed to looking back to where I was before the event. I didn't like doing it and resisted..Today, will be 4 years in the spring, I still hit a wall on occasion but I know it is coming. I know when I have gone beyond. I pace
