  1. Hi Daff, I was a workaholic...As a first grade teacher, I was usually in the building early and left at 5 pm or 6 pm daily (the custodians use to kick me out of the building lol) I worked weekends. The day of my hemorrhage, I was scheduled to tutor a student... Yes, As a society ‘busy’ is worn as a medal! I'm learning to take quiet time to heal...
  2. Hi Bev75! Thank you for your response. I will check out Mark Williams. I am glad that you are coping much better using relaxation techniques. I've heard of Headspace and want to download their app. I'm sure a calm quiet environment will help our overall health.

  5. Hi, The others advice really helped me. I am doing counseling via tel-med with a doctor who has worked with clients with brain bleeds. It is mostly helpful. I may try another doctor. I am almost 6 most post NASAH. I pushed myself back in month 3 because thought I should get ready to go back to work full-time. The ringing in my head increased in volume and doesn't stop...However, the greatest gift I experience is acting kinder and more accepting of myself and not setting goals...my body is the guide. I wish you well on your journey.
