  1. Hi, your best bet is to find a Benefits Adviser in your area. They will be able to tell you if you are entitled to any financial help. Your local or county council may have a welfare rights department. Depending on your age Age UK also have them. There is also website called Youreable https://youreable.livingmadeeasy.org.uk/login.php?do=logout&logouthash=1612865617-f85b06b273096818d382da6ae5990f82d14cf7c4 If you join the forum there are folk on there who can give you good advice even though they are not advisers as such. There is a member called Nukecad who is v

  2. Hi Shazza, Welcome to BTG! Everything you are feeling is normal part of your recovery. It can be a long, slow, up and down journey. Everybody is different. I can only speak from my experience. My SAH was in July 2020. I have significantly improved since then but I still get the headaches. Fatigue is also a factor in my everyday life. I take frequent rests and try to breakdown tasks so it does not overwhelm me. Take it easy and listen to your body. We cannot really set a timeframe for our recovery. We always say here, be kind to yourself. I do hope you can

  4. Hi Shazza A very warm welcome to BTG, glad you found us. I can only repeat what the lovely Ann has said above. Some great advice. It really is very early days in your recovery. I think you may have gone back to work too soon and your body is telling you that. Could you have a chat with work and go back on a slower phased return after you have rested. Perhaps two mornings a week and then gradually increase. See how you cope. Have regular meetings. As Ann has said everyone is different in their recovery. Listen to you body, rest lots and drink pl

  6. Hi Shazza I echo all that the others have said earlier. You really need to take a little more time off to help your recovery. I too like a glass of wine but whilst it isn't a no, no, you need to be aware that it will affect you more post bleed. I was told that it has double the effect and I certainly don't need much now before I feel it! I also find alcohol affects my memory much more than before so be careful. Keep taking it slowly - that's your recovery and the wine! Clare xx

  7. John It seems that progress is being made and from prima facie evidence (albeit verbal) you seem to have quite good results. I'm afraid that you are experiencing the sort of delays we all experience with the DVLA so there's no surprises there. They aren’t picking on you, it is merely the way things are there, compounded by the Covid shambles of course! Expect to wait for some time but don't be afraid to call every other day just to find out how the review is going. I had, eventually, to make a formal complaint as I was told I was a priority case yet heard no

  9. Late November the DVLA formally advised me that I needed to carry our a Goldman test at an approved optician, but no date for this could be arranged yet because of Covid pressures!!. Early December 2020, after appealing to the DVLA on compassionate grounds they relented and gave me the details to arrange a test. I was given a date in mid February at a Hospital (only one test a week because of Covid). i accepted this but said I would take any cancellation - and subsequently was given a date early January. For the the Goldman perimetry test, you sit in front of a large white dish w
