    Joan saffy

    Hi Joan (saffy) Well done on getting your blood sugars down and fingers crossed for you too, that all goes ahead for the 15th October. Wishing you well xx Love Tina xx
  4. Hi Dina A very warm welcome to BTG. As Jean has said, many of us are left with something that cause us to worry and feel more anxious. The good thing is, you have been and had a check up and all ok. It may be stress and anxiety, 3 months is very early in your recovery. I had head pressure for quite a few months after SAH. Your body could be telling you to slow down, maybe you are doing too much. Rest up as much as possible and drink lots of water. Keep in touch and let us know how you are doing. Take care Tina xx

    New here - Samantha

    Hi Sam A very warm welcome to BTG, so glad you found us. You are in the very early stages of recovery and feeling exhausted doing the smallest of things and emotionally all over the place is very normal. Take things very slowly and rest up as much as you can. Your brain is working overtime to mend and also function as normal. You have been through so much and have the worry of further brain surgery too, bless you xx Its good to know your Mum is around to help and support you and your Son. You will find BTG has a wealth of helpful information and caring support. Also as has been mentioned above Headway are very good. Please find a link below with many useful websites. https://web.behindthegray.net/index.php?/articles.html/useful-websites/useful-websites-r10/ We look forward to hearing more from you and wish you well for your surgery. Take care Tina xx

  11. Hi Susanne Here is the link to 'A letter from your brain' that the lovely Win mentioned :
  12. Hi Sue A very warm welcome to BTG. Well done for getting back to work so early. Working with 25 toddlers cant be easy ! As you say your are still in the early stages of recovery and have gone back very quickly. Maybe you could cut down your hours and gradually build them up again. Re your headaches, as Super has said, we cant give medical advice but definitely go and see your GP. Listen to your body, slow down and take care. We look forward to hearing how you get on. Tina xx
  13. Hi Susanne A very warm welcome to BTG. The first thing i was thinking as i read your post was, wow, such very long hours ! I think your husband is just doing too much and that is why he is sleeping on his days off. He needs to slow down, listen to his body and be kind to himself. Could he consider cutting his hours down? Gradually building them up again at a slower pace. It will give him a better quality of life and not be so frustrating for him. Extreme fatigue will make any short term memory so much worse. Hope you are doing ok? Wishing your husband well. Look forward to hearing more from you. Take care Tina xx
  14. Joan glad you managed to get back on and wishing you all the best for 15th October. Well done on getting your blood sugars down xx
  15. Hi Susan A very warm welcome to BTG. I cant help you with regards to a Chiropractic adjustment, but 3 months is still very early in your recovery from your bleed. At 3 months i still had very strange sensations in my head and bad headaches. Your brain is working overtime recovering from a massive trauma. Try to rest up as much as possible and drink plenty of water. It is very normal to feel freaked out and anxious, but this will improve with time. Listen to your body and be kind to yourself. It's good to read that the forum has been helpful. You are not alone in your journey. Please feel free to post any questions you may have. We cant give any medical advice, but can share our experiences. We look forward to hearing more from you and feel free to join in the daily banter in the Green Room, we are a friendly bunch. Take care Tina xx ,
