  1. No apologies necessary! The changes can be upsetting and baffling at times. Doesn't it seem that the fatigue hits at a most inconvenient time! We're all able to relate.
  2. I’m grateful to be able to come her and peruse the posts and comments. It’ll be four years in March since my SAH. I STILL have headaches and a buzzing feeling in my head. But I’m ok with that to be honest. My husband is wonderful and seems to intuitively know when I’m not feeling great. I worked for a medical doctor before retiring and we chatted recently. After doing some research he found a study and told me that 16% of us will live with chronic headaches. They come and go! So I’m resigned to that but so very thankful to still be active! To hike and jog a bit with the dogs and
  3. Daffodil, I have utmost respect for you! thank you for posting and for being an example for all of us! PS: The dogs are great to get you going and "in the moment" aren't they! They don't care if you look a mess or feel like a grump. They are happy in the moment if you so much as make eye contact and smile at them! Mine have taught me a lot! Congratulations on 8 years.
  4. I can hardly believe it's been three years since the day that changed me forever. We were having the worst snowstorm of the year in New Hampshire USA. There were virtual white-out conditions but me being Me, I strapped on my boots and set out to take the dog for a walk. I was pretty close to home when the pain hit. I described it as a "lightning strike" in the back of my head. It almost brought me to my knees and I knew. Something is wrong. I was able to make it home. At 59 years old, I had always been fairly fit. Sometimes very fit, but exercise has always been part of my
  5. I so enjoyed reading your post! I’m sure your family is blessed to have you! The loss of loved ones is a challenge for sure and post SAH especially. The timing must have been difficult. But YAY for a grandchild and your two adopted children as well. You sound busy..... my three year anniversary is the 14th of this month. I need to share as well!
  6. I'm coming up to three years this month as well !! I can say for certain that my brain is always reminding me that it's there. People who have never experienced this do not understand. It seems that many of us do our best to describe what we are feeling and although my buzzing, painful sensations sound a bit different from yours they are very real and annoying nonetheless! I hope you have a good week and get the rest and refreshment you need.
  7. I'll be three years post bleed in March and I live with headaches but I've never heard the term "Ice Pick Headache.' I can ALWAYS feel my head in the location of the original pain. Sometimes it's not bad thankfully but it escalates and can be severe. Sigh. My Internist gave me another MRI which was normal so I realized that I'm probably just going to live with it... It is sad to read your stories on the one hand and then on the other I realize it's a part of this bleed.
  8. I'm so thankful that you posted this. Reading the comments from others is helpful as well because we really are in an exclusive group aren't we? I won't give you any advice but I'll just thank you for posting and when my 3 year anniversary comes up in March I hope I can express my feelings as well.
  9. Subs, Thank you for that. I have seen many highs and lows to be sure and I see my family dealing with it all in a loving and patient way. I read somewhere that we don't LOOK different on the outside.....
  10. I just found this site! I"m coming up on three years since my SAH. I am so excited to read the experiences of others who had a similar experience. In March 2017, I took my dog for a walk as normal. I was a healthy 59 year old with a history of exercise and regularly jog, lift weights and achieved a 4th degree black belt. No one has ever accused me of being a delicate flower so when I experienced a headache so severe it almost brought me to my knees I knew something was seriously wrong. This was pain!.... I'm not sure exactly how I made it home as i was probably
