    Hi lorna welcome to btg xxx You need to start off with little walks alone. I was terribly anxious to begin with wouldn't go anywhere alone so glad I turned things around as I have two children (after sah) and me and my husband (their dad) have split up so I don't know where I would be now if I hadn't. You will be ok it will get easier Mr and the kids go on holidays and day trips all the time now mine was 16 years ago xxx

    Hi Angela welcome to btg I have took your full name off as lots of people see the posts. You are still early in your recovery make sure you rest when you need to and drink plenty of water. I still stutter when I feel tired drag my feet and get headaches. Keeping a diary is a brilliant idea not only will it help you to remember things but in a couple of years time you can read it and see how far you have come. Hope you keep getting better
  3. Congratulations on 9 years xxx Hope you have many more xxx

  13. Hi sorry they are not helping you find something you can take. I obviously cannot give medical advice but I can tell you what my Drs prescribed for me co-codomol they are good and they work they also give me amitriptyline for nerve pain ask you Drs if you can have that xxx The headaches, i was fine but my headaches came back too but I have had them 16 years now my Dr said they will never go away they do get milder and less often thought xxx Weak arms it might not be anything to do with you sah like you said it maybe from holding your iPad or something like osteoarthritis which I have and it causes my arm to feel weak xxx Hope this has helped a bit and you start to feel better soon xxx
