mikedee1957 Posted November 10, 2011 Share Posted November 10, 2011 Friday afternoon, 7th October 2011 So there i was sat on the laptop, doing some work. I'd had a headache, the numbing "oh it'll go away" type for the past few days. Next minute I saw the images on screen go wavy, there was a bright white flash and.................. ............."why is someone cradling my head? why can i feel blood on my head, my back, see it on the floor around me? Why is someone telling me an ambulance is coming? Who needs an ambulance. Grief my head hurts!!!!!!!!!!!" I'd blacked out, fallen onto our Stone floor, and was found gurgling, bleeding and mid-seizure by my wife. She got someone to dash to the neighbours next door whilst she dialled 999. This couldnt be happening to Mike. He's never been ill. He's active fit and healthy. Fortuneately the neighbours mother was there, she's a nurse and she came round, got me into recovery and took control. Grief my head is gonna explode!!!!!!!!! I'm put in the ambulance. "Turn that siren off!!!" Feel every road bump on the 15 minute ride to the Calderdale Hospital. "Will someone please remove this head!!!" You have no idea what's happening to you, but you know this is serious. Am I gonna die? I'm cleaned up, my blue shirt is now red with blood, I'm told to stay awake, I'm put back in the ambulance for a half hour ride to Leeds General Infirmary. I understand that somethings wrong with my head. But what? My wife's in the ambulance, telling me I'm going to be OK but I can see the fear in her eyes. I dont even care about the pain now, just let me go. A weekend of pure agony whilst the powers that be decide what to do with me. Ive had a brain haemorrhage. Me-impossible!!! I'm indestructible arent !? I feel like I'm going to die. People are visiting me I haven't seen in years. I know they are there. Are they coming to say goodbye? Monday I'm going for an operation. Through my groin???? Mad thought comes to me that I'm glad I didn't damage my groin or they'd be going through my brain?????!!!!!!!!!!!! Six hours in operation, I can feel myself coming round. God I'm alive and i can feel someones taken the metal belt thats been squeezing my head since friday off!!! Now hows this for recuperation??? By Friday I'm home!!!! Yes, one week later!!!! I'm weak, I'm tired, I've lost a stone- good diet this- the H(aemorage) Plan!! Wednesday, gone out for a walk!!!! No visible side effects!! Inside not so great, bit weepy (NOT me!!), worried about the long term effects, tired obviously, and lost some of my sense of taste. But hey, I'm here I know it's gonna be slow progress, and I'll have to change the way I live but every day I feel a little more like me. Dont give up. Hope this helps someone.
