amexdm Posted June 10, 2013 Share Posted June 10, 2013 Hello all: I have been meaning to post this thread for a while but in the meantime have been a little busy at work. I see alot of new members here and wanted to welocme them. I am 22 months in to SAH. Doing better but not 100%. I wanted to share with our new members the saga of the TWO Month Terrror I would call it. If, I wrote a book it would be chapter two. Some of us suffer a bit of a shock when we hit the two month mark of the SAH. Now mind you, not everyone feels it but from what I have read here there are many that have. What happens is at two months, the enormity of the SAH hits us. Typically, the first two weeks we are in the hospital. We get discharged. We get sent home with mostly no information. We are told we should be "recovered in 3-6 months. We rest for a month. 8 weeks hits and all of a sudden the SAH hits you like a ton of bricks. Speaking for myself, I realized that it did indeed HAPPEN and I would likley never be the same again. At two months, I happened to about 4 hours away on vacation and I had a few beers and realized I wasnt the same. I started crying right there in the bar, (happened to be a casiono). My wife was ith me thankfully. I went outside and just cried for like and hour. I'm have heard of this happening to other SAH'ers. I'm not trying to be negative, I'm just trying to give new folks a heads up. At around two months, it's gonna hit you that you had a brain injury. It may hit you hard. Let it hit you. Cry if you must. Just be aware and that it is part of the recovery process. I know others have felt this happen and wanted to try and share my experience. Any vets that care to share as well, that would be great. Good luck and stay with BTG, David Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
