Guest Jane Posted March 27, 2007 Share Posted March 27, 2007 Hi Everyone! What an amazing place to find! I had my SAH in 1994 (or was it 1995??) and this is the first time I've had contact with anyone else who's experienced the same thing! Joy! Anyway, here's my Intro To Me: I'm Jane, I was about 38 when I had my SAH, and I was living with my husband in a small (as in teeny-tiny) village in Somerset. Miles away from anywhere. I'd been having fertility treatment for years before ... and then -- BAM! out of the blue, burst aneurysm and a complete blank for about three weeks. To cut a very long story short, I ended up in Frenchay Hospital, was diagnosed with hydrocephalus after about three weeks and had a VP shunt fitted. And then went home to a husband who just didn't want me any more. Stupid man. So it's lovely to see on this forum that there are really supportive relationships around and that Love Can -- and Will -- Conquer All!! Anyway, it took him 2 years to finally have the guts to leave me. Oh, that he'd done it earlier! Coldness and heartlessness are very cruel. But ... I've survived, and I'm going from strength to strength -- with loads of naps and snoozes and vague ditzy bits in between. Yes, it's slow. And, yes, it's my own ideosyncratic version of getting better. But, hey -- could be dead, no? One thing I must ask, whilst I've got the chance -- I've been diagnosed as having ME. Now, how do I work out what's the result of the SAH, what's the hydrocephalus and what's the ME? Might it all be the SAH? I've never really given SAH or hydro a thought and I've nothing to compare myself with, so I don't know. Anyway, I'm so glad to have found this site. And I'll be back!!
