johntaras Posted March 3, 2010 Share Posted March 3, 2010 Hi, I am nearly four months down the road since my SAH. Each day is a blessing as I know how close I was to not being here. What I find difficult is relating events to time. I have no memory from the 9th November when I went back to bed until about the middle of December when I was in Stoke Hospital. Then my memory is patchy up until Christmas.:redface: All the content of my time in hospital has come from family members who witnessed my strange behaviour each day. I suffered from Hydrocephalus and it made me unable to do the simplest of things, walk, talk, eat. I just did not make any sense. My memory span was a matter of minutes. I would eventually talk and describe my surroundings as my old place of work not a hospital ward. Did anybody else experience any similar events to my experiences, did you lose weeks or days where your memory has gone. I am also finding it difficult to comprehend that after being so poorly I have come through the other side with so many of my faculties, it is a miracle. I run my hand through my hair and feel the two drain hole scars that are the legacy of my illness and the sensitive patch at the side of my head where my Shunt has been inserted. Please don't think my comments are in any way complaints, I am for ever greatful that I have come through the illness. I realise now how defenceless we are to such an illness as I had no warning. If anybody has experienced any similar experiences I would really appreciate your comments. I have been told there is a three month waiting list for the Psychologists. This site is an invaluable source of communication and help. I find the daily communications a real boost. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
