  1. Hi Daffodil yes that’s what I mean I thought they called it a shunt in hospital but the way I was then they could have called it anything. l would like to think it was a damaged hair follicle but they are few and far between on my head. l don’t think phone appointment will be much good, but it’s a start Ps green with envy seeing you paddle boarding I was going to have a go last year, but like everyone else holiday was cancelled. Thank you Compostc.
  2. Just wondered if anyone had a growth in the dint in their head where the shunt was. In the last month one has appeared on mine, it’s like a mole although white and seems to be growing fairly quickly. I have a phone appointment with my doctor next Monday. Be grateful for any info.
  3. Great news Tony you should get the letter in a couple of days. l had no vision problems just the normal delays you expect from DVLA. After weeks of phone calls I eventually got someone helpful who said she look into my case. Five minutes later she phoned me back and said she would send me a letter to show to police if stopped. Two days later the letter came, two days later my license arrived. Funny thing is the lady was called Karen, the girl assigned to me at the job centre who’s father had a SAH and was brilliant was also called Karen, then I find this site and
  4. Hi Swishy Congratulations on your fourth anniversary, your grandson and your sons engagement. seems like you’re doing a good job of making every day count. I agree the human body is an amazing thing I’ve learned to treat mine a lot better recently. Keep enjoying life to the full. clive
  5. After watching this video in November I thought it was time to make some changes. So three month later I feel better than I ever have since my SAH. I would like to say that it’s down to me, but it’s mostly down to COVID. Lockdown has eliminated most of my triggers, plus I’ve done very little work. Self isolating twice, two weeks off over Christmas, two weeks off hurt my back, plus floods and snow. Trouble is next three months I have a lot of catching up to do, after seeing how good life can be I'm determined to make changes. It will be interesting to
  6. Suzanne congratulations on your first anniversary and for stopping smoking. Enjoy life. Compostc.
  7. Thank you Daffodil I knew something made me feel dreadful but having it explained like this will help me a lot. I know to avoid certain shops (lights) younger grandchildren (noise)and a few more. The latest is when things go wrong on this iPad which is quite often. I've learnt more in a week on this site than I have in eight years. Thanks again Compostc
  8. I get it CaseyR. That describes me, physically I can do anything but not for very long. Compostc.
  9. Hello Subzero thanks for the welcome. I am enjoying my garden more now, my grandchildren make sure no fruit goes to waste.although I seem do be doing more work for other people lately, Hello Louise thanks for welcome. Looks like the same weather as here up the east coast today. Good chance to put my feet up as I did to much again yesterday Hello CaseyR Thanks for the welcome. I think we were lucky being older. I don’t know how younger people cope especially with children. I have four grandchildren l find it hard coping with them. They think I’m a miserable old # but I’
  10. Hello to Swishy Diggly Dog and Tina. Thank you for the warm welcome. I’ve been looking at this site for a while now so I realise how informative it is. I had been a self employed gardener for 25 year and never got back full time but I still do a little bit. I would be lost without my iPad now especially with Covid . Sorry not to answer individually I haven’t done anything like this since school Thank you again Compostc.
  11. Hello from Compostc 66year old male had my Sar 21 07 2012. I got my iPad this year so am just learning. Wish i had it 8 year ago This site would have helped me a lot back then. I can’t fault the hospital treatment and care but once discharged I was just left to get on with it. I think I’m still getting better though I still do to much . never seem to learn
