Guest Posted October 6, 2006 Share Posted October 6, 2006 Hi there Iâ€™m Louise I had my brain Haemorrhage 6 years ago after I came home from work. Brilliant to find youâ€™re web site. I had my Brain Haemorrhage 6 years ago so you could say Iâ€™m an old hand thereâ€™s been good days followed by lots of bad days 4 steps forward & 6 back tiredness being the thing that runs my life then & now. The frustration for me because although my body wasnâ€™t really affected all that much however my memory was Iâ€™m very slow now & find some things then & now difficult to do or understand. My life didnâ€™t just changed it totally was turned up side down when it happened I have changed last year my cousin was home from Australia & they were stunned at the change in me not visually itâ€™s a strange thing to explain the old me doesnâ€™t exist now but sheâ€™s still there. But in 6 years I have learned what my limitations are my strengths it doesnâ€™t mean to say I like it but it makes things easier, I am at college now doing advanced IT & recently have started to design cards & things which happened completely by accident its on the computer this computer has been a god send a life line for me its gave me something that I really enjoy doing & that is it I think if you can find something that the â€˜new youâ€™ is suited too for me it didnâ€™t happen over night & it wasnâ€™t in the first year either its only been in the last few years that I have managed to gain some sort of a control on things. But everyone is different I too have my sleep pattern affected by things if I have things on my mind I canâ€™t sleep all that well. I only drink One cup of coffee a day because coffee stimulates the brain. I too was made redundant whilst I was off work I had just been finally discharged from hospital & a few weeks later the letter arrived, & within 5 day I was re-admitted. Well probably lots more to say but donâ€™t want to bore you all at once Again great site well done not just for thinking about it but for doing something that I wish I had been able to do. Take care Louise. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
