But please speak to the doctor on Friday, Each one of us are different x x x ALL special but different hehe Lots Love Donna xxxxxxx

  13. Hello all I seem to be on a negative spiral at the moment and I have been referred back for some councilling (this will be my third time) I am 5 years since sah in April and every day still is a task for me x x I have headaches, dizzyness everyday and cry alot I spend every other week at the doctors with the above and normally end up crying in surgery x x I have tried every med and they put it all down to ANXIETY (which yes I do suffer alot from) but mostly brought on by the above feelings x x Does anyone else suffer with these and the fear of it being something going off in my head x x I am due my MRI in April and even though I hate them (clostraphobic) ? spelling I keep telling myself that if I get the all clear from this then I WILL go abroad and live my life I am fed up with everyday being a chore and think my family have had enough to x x I have no close friends to talk to and close family have their own personnel issues x x If there is anyone out there struggling please feel free to message me x x I really dont think we are alone x x I am also poorly at the moment with a virus so my whole head is hurting x x x ONE DAY I WILL WAKE UP AND BE OK X X Sorry to be on a downer x x no one else to talk to x x x lots love donna xxxxx
  14. Hello Fern, I am awaiting my scan for april this year and am scared they will find something because i had a remenant on my aneurysm x x So I understand a bit x x x All I can say is like you x x x I wouldn't be able to live with the fact that it could burst at anytime (i am a massive worrier) and like you I would opt for treatment x x x I search the web many times to try and find answers of why and curse but what I have found is we are all different and so are all cases x x x I am sure that there are people on here that have gone through what you are x x x Big hugs to you hun and stay positive x x lots luv donna we are all here for each other x x
