  1. February 13, 2018 my life changed forever. My daughter found me on my bedroom floor lodged between my bed and my nightstand. I was rushed to the hospital and an MRI showed that I had suffered a major subarachnoid haemorrhage. The ups and downs that I endured are almost too many to mention. I developed encephalitis and had 3 different brain shunts put in. The doctor told my family that I would probably be out in a month. I spent 10 months on the ABI ward. Just when I was doing better, I got a bad gall bladder infection that infected my whole body

  2. 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. I just got a pm from someone 9 months post-SAH, looking for info about my experience. I responded, then I remembered how incredibly helpful and useful BTG was for me in my first weeks post-SAH. 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

  3. Suffered my haemorrhage in June 2004, treated with coil embolisation (11 coils) at King’s Collage Hospital, London. Over the following years had another four embolisation (23 coils) plus A stent. Took about five years to get anywhere near back to my old self, my wife doesn’t agree that I’m close to the man I was. Still get tired easily especially when taking on anything that requires intense concentration. Consider myself extremely fortunate as I’ve seen sufferers that have been left with severe morbidity, so if you’re anywhere near the person you where before your event consider t

  4. A letter from your brain Hello, I’m glad to see that you are awake! This is your brain talking. I had to find some way to communicate with you. I feel like I barely survived WWIII and am still not quite all in one piece. That’s why I need you. I need you to take care of me. As time passes and you and I feel better and better, people, even doctors, will tell you that we are fine, “it’s time to get on with life.” That sounds good to me and probably even better to you. But before you go rushing back out into that big wide world, I need you to listen to me, really listen. Don’t shut me

  6. I was cooking a curry when I had my SAH and I remember nothing until I had my shunt put in and then little by little it came back to me. Thanks to this site and my Family xx When I had an SAH/Bleed plus Ventriculitis/UTI/Sepsis my Hubby and Daughter were there for me and when the O/T's said "put her in a home and grieve for who I once was, as I am no longer that person and never will be. My hubby decided I'd be better off at home (love him so) and my Daughter was brilliant and made sure I was looked after. Then, when my brother Terry knew I would get better he came a

  7. I wrote this about 3 weeks after my NASAH as I wanted to update friends and family on what we were going through; I did put it on social media and at the time it helped a lot, ensuring that lots of well-meaning 'well wishers' stopped deluging me and my wife with questions, as it was all there in one piece for them to read. January 3, 2017 Just run through it…the road to recovery after NASAH – Part 1. December 13th 2016 started much like the rest of December had. Up early, running gear on and out with the dogs for the pre-planned Marcothon 5k route. I was mildl

  8. I’m 35, married and have a nine year old little girl. I was on holiday at the time of my bleed and just felt a little weird when it happened. Within the time it took me to tell my husband so I had lost the use of my right leg and looked like I had had a stroke. My husband called the ambulance and I was taken to Barnstaple and then transferred to Derriford in Plymouth. They carried out a ct scan and found two anuerysms - one had burst and the other was next to it. They coiled them both via the angiogram and so far so good. I’ve had another scan since and all appears to be fine. Sami, (RossiGir
