  1. Hi Monique, Welcome to BTG. We are glad you joined. You will find the most helpful and compassionate people here. I'm sorry to hear you are having a hard time. All you are feeling I (most of us) have gone through. Know that it is ok to feel that way. Your SAH is so recent. Mine happened in July and the first 1 was 10 years ago.

I have 1 boy and my husband who sometimes act like a child. ha

Try to have a nap during the day which may help you sleep at night, fatigue is a well documented after effect of an SAH. Drink plenty of water to keep you well hydrated. If you feel able, take a short walk during the day. Apart from breaking the day up and you getting some fresh air, it may also help with your sleep and boredom. It is a long road to recovery for most, your brain has had an onslaught and needs time t
