  1. Welcome to BTG. May I suggest that you start a new thread in Introduce Yourself https://web.behindthegray.net/forum/8-introduce-yourself/ or in Subarachnoid Haemorrhage Discussion https://web.behindthegray.net/forum/6-subarachnoid-haemorrhage-discussion/ Your post will then be more visible to users.
  2. I had my 2nd dose of Pfizer today. Didn't have any problems with the 1st one so don't expect any with this one.
  3. Welcome to BTG, sorry that no one has replied to you. We do have members who have been recoiled so hopefully someone will pick this up and reply.
  4. I'm sure you have read that there are no hard, fast rules as everyone's recovery is different. When you feel able you could start to walk, slow and for a short distance, not forgetting you have to get back. Apart from the exercise the fresh air and change of scenery can lift your spirits. I, personally, started taking slow and short walks, . I gradually picked up the speed and distance. For any vigorous exercise I would contact your doctor for their advice.
  5. 9 years, onwards and upwards Daff. Enjoy your day, celebrate life.
  6. Welcome to BTG. I had my vaccination about 4 weeks ago. I didn't get a reaction but everybody is different. If you are worried speak to your doctor or nurse specialist at the hospital you were treated.
  7. What wonderful news Sarah. So pleased for you. Tell your hair it can stop going grey now. 🤣
  8. Clare, well done on your 6 years and for coping with the many changes you have made. Congratulations.
  9. Hi, your best bet is to find a Benefits Adviser in your area. They will be able to tell you if you are entitled to any financial help. Your local or county council may have a welfare rights department. Depending on your age Age UK also have them. There is also website called Youreable https://youreable.livingmadeeasy.org.uk/login.php?do=logout&logouthash=1612865617-f85b06b273096818d382da6ae5990f82d14cf7c4 If you join the forum there are folk on there who can give you good advice even though they are not advisers as such. There is a member called Nukecad who is v
  10. Well, today is my 17th SAH anni-versary. Where have all those years gone? Still enjoying life to the best of my ability although, like just about everybody, the last 12 months have been hard and I think, will be hard for the next months to come. I actually found out I share this anni-versary with the launch of Facebook 17 years ago today. Wish I had as much money as Mark Zuckerberg . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Facebook#:~:text=Facebook is a social networking service launched as,Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes.
  11. Hi Deborah, I remember all those years ago (almost 17 now) being terrified of the follow up angiogram, so I requested a sedative which I was given. It really helped. Please ask for a sedative and all being well they should give you one.
  12. Welcome to BTG Mon Although we are unable to give medical advice as we are not medically qualified we can support you in your recovery journey. Try to have a nap during the day which may help you sleep at night, fatigue is a well documented after effect of an SAH. Drink plenty of water to keep you well hydrated. If you feel able, take a short walk during the day. Apart from breaking the day up and you getting some fresh air, it may also help with your sleep and boredom. It is a long road to recovery for most, your brain has had an onslaught and needs time t
  13. I suspect that there has been no research to link dementia to SAH so probably any answers you get off the medics will be speculation on their part. Worth querying any medical answers you do get to see how the conclusion was arrived at.
  14. I wasn't abandoned as such but was laughed at by my sister. She actually said " I'm glad it happened to you not me" Even though bridges have been partially mended over the years it still hurts a little and I will never forget her attitude. The worst thing was that the SAH left me disabled but life goes on and I make the most of it. Life is for living and enjoying which I do to the best of my ability. Yes it is a struggle at times but mainly when I set my mind to something I achieve it, maybe not perfectly as in the past but at least achieved. Knowing my limitations helps.
  15. Suzanne, how lovely to here from you again. Congratulations on number one. The first anniversary is always the worst. As time passes acceptance does get easier. Look on it as a celebration, you are here to tell the tale
