  1. Well, did my first two days at work and .. I’m pretty much okay. Was well tired yesterday, but think that’s more because sunday’s Line of Duty’s cliffhanger left me a bit hyper and unable to sleep than due to work 😂 I work a bit slower than I used to (that speed was untenable however ... I was like the Duracell bunny on speed), but hectic mix of phone calls, huge open work space with colleagues dotted about here and there, the adoring public when they come to make a complaint, politicians badgering you, ... (it’s such a joy being a local civil servant 😜) ... so far, I’m dealing wi

  2. I got my second Moderna shot a couple of days ago. Getting a bit of brain fog, fatigue, and headaches--kind of what I was already experiencing due to the NASAH! The only new thing is my arm hurts. But other than these things, all of which are to be expected, not experiencing any problems. And very relieved to be fully vaccinated.

  3. Hi my name is Adam I’m so glad I have found this page, reading topics and testimonials from people has really helped give me an insight to what has happened to me! I’m a 37 year old male from the Midlands in the UK On Monday 29th March whilst on the toilet I had the most horrendous headache and later on was extremely sick, I went to my local hospital where I had 2 CT scans and these showed I had a bleed on my brain. From there I was then taken in an ambulance to University Hospital Coventry, not knowing what was going on or what was going to happen to me!

  4. Hi Adam, and yes, a very warm welcome to the 'family'. I can't imagine what going through this alone in hospital must have been like for you, or for your family not being able to be there with and for you either. I agree with Sarah regarding the comment about yours "being a good one" - no-one can define a brain bleed as good in any way, shape or form! It might not have been "serious" but a bleed is a bleed and it has a massive impact on the patient and those around them. As for the 6 - 8 week recovery, a slightly unrealistic standard time frame given by med

  5. Hi Adam and a warm welcome to Behind the Gray. I'm sorry to hear you had such a rough time. Not knowing what was happening and having no family around to support either would be a bad experience in anyone's book. Anyway I'm glad you're back home now where you can concentrate on your recovery. 6-8 weeks seems to be the standard that doctors tell you, or at least mine did too. I think it is very misleading give a time span like that as many survivors take considerably longer than that. As for telling you that yours was one of the good ones, well I've never heard anyth

  6. Please do get the vaccine. Pfizer and moderna are mRNA vaccines which means they are just proteins. Drink lots of water/ fluids and take Tylenol after the shot. I have two of my patients have hives and dizziness. If you have flu like symptoms, that is just a reaction to be expected. If you don’t get the vaccine, you will probably get the virus. And there is not guarantee if it will be a mild case. We don’t have AstraZeneca here. It is a shame that Johnson is on hold due to clots. I see many people all the time with clots. Some due to sitting in plane/ car/ train, some due to immobi
