  1. Hi there Oh goodness you survived its a hell that will ease honest - the good thing is you know there is a problem so get an appointment with your GP and talk to them about it, and get referred for councelling, you could also look at Headway site, they are brilliant. And just DITTo all Skippy has said and Macca too all positive.. We know what its like make this the start by making an appointment and ask about councelling it really, really helps... sending you all best wishes for a happier you...
  2. Hi there warm welcome to the site, glad that you found us. It's all quite normal and yep fatigue is being shattered and some, it will ease though just remember not to over do it, rest lots and keep well hydrated, and when the body says rest don't fight it listen to it... confidence will come back. take care, hope to hear more from you...
  3. Hi Ben warm welcome to the site, glad that you found us. don't worry they will extend your sick line its still very early days for you, take things easy rest lots and keep hydrated, slow and easy does it. take care
  4. Happy Ani-versary sending you cyber vibes it always an emotional time hugs hun. xx
  5. Hi there Warm welcome to the site, glad that you found us. I was ages between appts I think its just how they do it, (although if they were the patients I think they'd get the despair it puts us through) my thought is though, if there was anything wrong they'd have your appt sooner. it takes a long time to heal so maybe too that's why its always so long... take things easy when you feel tired then rest up, keep well hydrated especially with the heat.
  6. Sorry late on this bit of catch up today.. Great picture Karen as ever big Thank-you for everything you do and the work you put in totally appreciated.. Was such a turning point for me stumbling on BTG.
  7. Hi there warm welcome to the site, glad you found us, I was taken to Edinburgh Western General - life savers.... Take things easy rest and relax when your tired give in and rest, keep well hydrated especially when its warm...
  8. I had this eventually it eased, I used a shampoo for sensitive scalp, (cant get the one I used to use now) but now use Head & shoulders sensitive scalp its ok..
  9. Hi there warm welcome I had the full blown SAH, but know that non is just as hard to recover from, understand ect. keep hydrated as much as you can, it helps, pace yourself as much as you can... I think we all wonder why??? I don't know I've never known I've just learned to live with it... take care
  10. What wonderful news I too can only ditto the others.... Thank-you for the update, again huge well done..
  11. Nothing beats gut instint... And I think walking is a great way to build up strength... Doing a daily diary is great too gives something to focus on doing it and helps if there's a pattern. Remember keeping hydratated helps with headaches. And could just be the blood going back through the body that's causing it... take care.
  12. I know what you meant about Edinburgh festival Tattoo/Fringe I'm from Edinburgh & also know Dumfries too we nearly moved to Moffatt 12years ago didn't long story... Ah Daff bless you..
  13. Daff, after you telling me last year about travelling through airport with a hidden disability I saw this today from Headway... https://www.headway.org.uk/news-and-campaigns/news/2019/sunflower-lanyards-take-off-for-passengers-with-hidden-disabilities/?fbclid=IwAR2oP0xe5NfQHu3qD90mkqiL4n9K0gdPwenDurqCGAEotOFNHQlcfMVxkNA Hope its ok Mods I can share this??
  14. The appointment thing sucks hope you get something soon.. Being prevented by consultant though is obvious for a reason I get your gutted and with the non appt not great but isn't it safer at the moment you don't drive?
  15. Hi there Warm welcome to the site glad that you found us. Yes keep hydrated, take things easy slow and easy the way to go, and listen to your body when it craves rest don't ignore it... Hope the site helps you.
  16. Congrat Michelle on your 5th Anni huge well don't to you.... Be proud of how far you have come....
  17. That is so sad to hear, thank-you for posting it Karen. my thoughts are with her family hope that one day the smiles will come again...
  18. Hi there I normally find answering this hard as I wasn't able to get myself back to work, however first thing is ditto what others have said... Wow!! well done hun on getting back to work so quickly but it was in my view too quick and the hours Wowa!!! That is and I suspect always a problem with looking ok - but not feeling the way you look.... Recently I said to someone on here You have to educate people to this.... I wish you well and as others have said maybe a change is in order....
  19. Hi Ruth warm welcome, yes its true we all have the same thing but in so, so many different ways in recovery and damage... look forward to reading your posts..
  20. 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.
  21. 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...
  22. 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...
  23. 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.

  25. 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.
