  1. Thank you all so much for taking the time to read my little story, it’s so nice realizing that there are people who understand what I’m going through, I’m sure because I look the same on the outside people who don’t know me well don’t realize the changes that have happened on the inside. Trying not to get too stressed about the procedure, the worst part is the waiting and the what if? Thank you all for being there. Xxxx
  2. Exactly one year to the day when my world changed but I made it. Had my yearly check up and the doctor says the coiling has impacted and that there is a balloon developing at the base, so they will be having me back in within two months to repack the coiling and fit a stent and also consider what to do, if anything, about two other small aneurysms on the right side, but they haven't increased in size since April so that's up to the team to decide. My short term memory seems to have improved in the last few months, I find keeping a diary helps, not just of what I've done but how I am feeling, depressed, confused or happy. I try to do brain games on the iPad, find the word, join the letters, solitaire etc. I get really nervous going into busy places, my self confidence has really taken a knock, must have somebody with me otherwise it's like brain says enough is enough, too much information so get me out of here. But, and it's an important but, I'm still me inside. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and hope we all have a wonderful next year.
  3. Thank you all so much for the kind words and warm welcome. Have the 12 month MRA and consultation scheduled for mid December so fingers crossed all will be well. Do try to drink at least 3 liters a day especially in the height of the summer. I do lists of everything especially with Christmas just around the corner. Hate having the blank times, can remember things from 2 years ago, but 2 weeks ago,where’s my diary?
  4. Hi all. Just want to say hello and say a little about my sah. Really not sure where to start, we retired to turkey 8 years ago and were in uk for Christmas last year, I don't really remember much at all of the few weeks leading up to Christmas but remember arriving at the hotel at Stanstead ready to fly home the next morning, walking into the lobby when it felt like someone had shot a rocket into my head. The nhs really did me proud and I was discharged early January after having a coil fitted. Couldn't fly home for 10 weeks and the take off and landing was so scary. After 11 months, I have really bad short term memory, when I get tired, I get stressed and confused and start stuttering. I write lists to remind myself of what I need to do for the coming week, and a diary to remind myself of what I did last week. I'm so glad my partner found your website. Reading some of the stories made me pluck up courage to ask him to write this. I couldn't write this much without forgetting where I was. Thanks for reading my story.
