Pamela825 Posted October 11, 2010 Share Posted October 11, 2010 Hello, On August 25, 2010, the eve of our family vacation my life forever changed; I had the worst headache of my life; I suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage. I was fortunate, after several CT scans and 2 angiogram, the doctors found no aneurysms to clip or coil. Day six in the Neuro Intensive Care Unit (NICU) I had a mini stroke that left me blind for a couple of days with most of the damage to my central vision. My vision has been returning gradually, I can see in the distance, but as objects get closer I lose sight of them. I am unable to read, drive, and go anywhere by myself. My short term memory was also effected. After reading each post, I realized I am not alone. I’m also experiencing anxiety attacks especially when in stores; these attacks occur at least two or three times a day. Night time is the worse, waking up every night around 2:00 a.m. in a panic which takes me nearly 2 to 3 hours to relax and go back to sleep. If I feel any kind of pain, automatically I think something bad is about to happen. It is very frustrating living life like this. Any suggestions on how to get pass these attacks will be greatly appreciated. Breathing and music therapy is not working. Thanks to my partner for typing and posting this message.
