louiserawlings Posted July 18, 2012 Share Posted July 18, 2012 Hi , my name is Louise I suffered my SAH in July 2010 . I was recommended to this site as there doesn't seem to be the support out there for what has happened , it seems to have been patch me up and send me home . I was sent home after a week after coils fitted but was taken back into hospital suffering vasospasms this has left me weak on my left side . After leaving for the second time I felt strong enough to go back to work after 3 months , this I now realise was a big mistake as although I felt the support was there because I looked ok on the outside it was assumed I was fine on the inside . This led to what I can only preseave to be a mental breakdown and could not cope with anything life chucked at me which hit hard as I was before this a very confident and outgoing person . Life seems even as the second anniversary comes closer is still a constant struggle , i cope day to day but i get days where i get very confused and can even forget my own name . I get tired if i have to concentrate for to long and extremely anxious and stressed over little things like bills that i know are sorted . My family make a joke that if i'm tired and speak to them i sound drunk as my words slur . I seem to have at times problems with my brain comprehending what i'm looking at or trying to take in forgetting little things quite easily . I recently had a medical as I've suffered depression with what's gone on and have been put back on a programme to get me back to work . The officer in charge after my interview said in his own opinion I should not be there , I think I try to pretend to hard that I'm back to normal but I realise this is just kidding myself and not those in close connection with me . I am hoping there are others out there to which these feelings relate to so I don't feel so alone and isolated in these feelings and at times utterly useless and would welcome any feed back or guideance in what I should do or the relevant people I should talk to Thank you for your time Louise Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
