    I have to agree take their advice - as for excersise I think your getting plenty just with day to day life stuff. Do listen to your body and keep well hydrated and remember your in early days take it easy.. take care

    I wobble too but have to say nobody's said that to me 'yet' but I'd be like SM and just laugh it off I have been told 'your slow' when a jokes being told or something like that I just laugh that off to my brain works slow...

    Welcome Angela, wow! scary but each day is a gift it takes time to get over something like a SAH, slow and easy, listen to your body when it says had enough rest, keep hydrated and more so when its hot. writing lists, keeping a diary are all good I still do that and with Christmas looming there will be lists, and lists of lists its crazy but it keeps me on track, hope to hear more from you..

    Hi there gosh I was still getting better way after 6mths infact I was still getting better 1,2,3,4 years later.. take care.
  5. Hi there, my BP goes up and down like a yoyo. sometimes when you focus too much on it, it doesn't help it. keep hydrated and rest if your doing too much maybe its your body's way of saying 'slow down' take care

    Feeling down

    Hiya Sorry to hear that I agree if your worried see your GP re headaches its more than likely stress.. Appeal it then, Id go to CAB (Citizens advice) I've found them really helpful they know who to contact and what you should get and do next. Don't just think oh well that's that because I reckon when they refuse its to put you off CAB aren't like that well not that I've found, and I've had a few visits to them. I'm sure I read on the Headway site that they were trying to educate the DWP about head injuries.
  14. I have a shunt too, and the weather effects it - only thing I can suggest is if your concerned see your neuro team - if yours is an adjustable one maybe it just needs a tweak.
  15. Keep well hydrated (and especially at the min in the heat) yep feeling older than you are I SO get that one...
