Sam Posted August 12, 2010 Share Posted August 12, 2010 Hi everyone, I'm Sam, I've been registered on this site for a while but felt to nervous to say hello til now, I don't know why I was. I had an SAH whilst on holiday in Oct 09, I was in hospital abroad for a few days and was eventually diagnosed with a viral infection and discharged with anti-biotics. I flew home a few days later (not a happy flight, I felt so ill and now I know why!) and I tried to function for a few days before giving in to what I thought was weakness and went to see my GP. He sent me to hospital where I was diagnosed with an SAH and was coiled the next day, spent several days in ITU and a while in hospital. I've had many of the side affects that I have read about on this site;insomia, memory problems and general cognitive difficulties and it feels good to know that I'm not alone. I'm looking forward to having contact with other SAH 'survivors' and having people understand that even though you look the same, your not. So thank you for listening...
