  1. No your not alone I think we all think that from time to time, I just went through a stint of it recently even after all these years, mines was due to new glasses that weren't sitting properly.. keep well hydrated it really does help.
  2. Melissa Your post makes perfect sence to me - I could have written parts of it myself. The memory and fatigue are definatly challenges but its a challenge I've been up for (though on the tough days I do wonder) but those lessen a lot with time... You are definitely NOT alone we all know, we all understand...
  3. Hi there Warm welcome to the site, I got told when I was trying to get the GP to listen your in your late 30's 'Its your age' Sadly you just have to keep on saying its not and your the best judge.. Yes I've had the scans they're nothing to worry about, YOU have to tell them what happened on Sunday don't dismiss it... take care...
  4. Hi sorry its a bit late but well done on your 2yrs I was still recovering after that so always room for inpovements.. Take care.
  5. Hi Kim Warm welcome to the site, glad that you found us. Hope the site is helpful for you. take care
  6. Hi Sherry Warm welcome to the site, glad that you found us. I think that its all very normal to feel like that, take things slow and easy remembering it wasn't any run of the mill thing you had. Keep hydrated it helps with the headaches.
  7. Hi there Warm welcome to the site, so glad that you found us. Rest and keep hydrated and know that your not alone in the way you feel, and we've all thought 'why me' I hope you find the site useful.
  8. Hi there my husband was diagnosed with border line diabetis believe that's type 2 Oct last year he's done really well concidering he's a shift worker which different start times finish times does throw some challenges but he's done really well, since Dec he's been waiting on an appt with the DESMOND project to help lucky he's found things by himself which is great. I'm with SM though you must have medical advice for meal replacements personally I think real food a far better way to go..

    Hi Jayne Warm welcome to the site. like you had the SAH, then rushed back in with viral meningitis in 2000... hope you find the site useful, take care.
  10. All the best sending you huge cyber vibes.
  11. I myself think there is a difference if I'm having a lazy day but if I'm fatigued its totally different its hard to explain, best I've come up with if there is something lying on the coffee table I want (whatever cake, sweets, TV remote) if I'm having a lazy day I think get up and get it but if its fatigue I can just stay sitting leave it there don't care moving is a struggle if having to cook OMG! its such a challenge it has to be simple quick and fuss free if its just me then I wont cook, and emotions are all over the place too. but that's taken a years to know the difference between the two.. And NO don't beat yourself up over it, it will get easier and better as time goes on take it from someone who's been there... slow and easy keeping a diary is a good way of seeing your progress...
  12. Hi there Although December might seem some time ago having had a SAH its not that long ago still in the early stages of recover I'd say.. wishing you well in your recovery.. Everyone has good advice...
  13. Hi there Not the same thing I know but wife of someone who does 12hours shifts from time to time (next one on Sat funny enough then Tues 18th) and for me they are shattering & I'm not the one working.. Its hard on even the ones that haven't had a SAH and all the challenges that goes along with it.
  14. Hi Vicky welcome to the site, glad you found us. Oh what a horrible ordeal for you to go through, the chances of you actually having another are low but that feeling is horrible think everyone feels like that in the beginning it will ease - honest. of course you had to make a complaint that was terrible and no-one should have to go though that. I hope you get some sort of resolution to this.. hope you find the site helpful. take care
  15. Welcome to the site so glad that you found us.. The guilt thing is horrible but know that it wasn't your fault and there was nothing you could have done, don't bottle it up speak with the family how you feel. This all takes time and you've been blessed with that sending my warmest wishes... All the other replies are great as ever so making this short...
  16. Hi there warm welcome to the site, glad that you found us.
  17. Mines not adjustable Penny, the way I look at it its keeping me alive, once its at a place your ok with it'll be ok... all the best take care..
  18. 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
  19. 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...
  20. 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..
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. Welcome back good to hear things have inproved as always onward and forward we go.. take care.
  24. I'm another with shunt for Hydrocephalus and stormy weather is a nightmare for me. but if it works for you then that's brilliant - enjoy.
