  3. Hi ClareM I can't reduce my hours due to the fact of my insurance and financial needs. Yes my boss is very supportive and I'm thankful for that. I am thinking about visiting my Nero doctor and discussing this with him. Along with some smaller item ...lower back pain and vision change again. I was just hoping this far out I would be back on track or at least lined up right on a new track. Thanks for the support its nice to talk to someone else that have and are having the same issues and its amazing it world wide. My location is North Carolina
  4. Hey ClareM and Louise, Thank you both for letting me know that I am not alone. ClareM I am Staff Assistant for a small Community College in my home town in which I work 38 hours a week. Yes I too get my words all tangled up if I get the least bit stressed. However I do have a super boss and she can see when I am having a hard day and will tell me to go for a walk and relax or let me take a long lunch.

  7. I am 2 years (June 28,2016 was when my life changed) out now from an non-aneurysm-sah. I am truly Blessed and Thankful for the life I have. With that being said I still have days that I am scared that it is happening again but not as often as in the beginning. I am back to work and I have adjusted okay with it. I am a staff assistant at a community college and have a great bunch of people that I work with. They have helped me relearn who they are and what I do. I wish I could say that life was back to normal but as my Nero doctor says that was the old me and the n

I am coming up on year 2 after my bleed and life is still different and for the most part I'm ok with that. I am Thankful to be a live and Thankful to be improving as time goes on. I still have headaches some bad and some not so bad. Since the bleed I have been back to the ER twice scared that I was having another one to find out that it was just a migraine that I could not get under control. I am truly hoping as time goes on the fear will continue to
  9. Hey Pat, Sorry it took so long for me to reply but for some reason I just saw this. Yes we are blessed !!! I was fortune even that my bleed sealed itself off so I do not know what its like to have a shunt, however I still have shooting pains in the area of the bleed and the doctor tells me that it is normal.
