Leanne Posted February 20, 2014 Share Posted February 20, 2014 (edited) Hello all, My name is Leanne and I have recently joined the site and finding my feet. I had a SAH on 14 Jan 2014. I woke up with the worse headache that I have ever experienced, the text book thunderclap one. I went to my local A & E and had a scan which confirmed that I had had a bleed on my brain. I was taken to my regional neuro centre where they did further scans and confirmed that I had had a Grade 1 SAH on the right side of my brain. I had my op (coiling) the following day and was in the HDU for 24 hours and then the neuro ward for a further 7 days before I was discharged. Physically I'm fine, the headaches have subsided. I'm tired and don't do much during the day. I find it difficult to get to sleep at night, but when I do I sleep for about 12 hours. I have seen my GP twice and my everything is fine. I know I have been very lucky. The thing is I really can't be bothered with contact. This started pretty much when I left hospital, but in the last couple of weeks has got worse to the point that I am no longer replying to calls/texts. I feel quite empty and have very little empathy for anything. I don't want to see my parents and have asked my partner to move out. I know its rotten but I really cant be bothered. I prefer just sitting on my own. I don't feel sad. It does stress me when they go on at me for wanting to be on my own. Is this 'normal' given the circumstances. I know I didn't have a big one and physically I'm ok, but would like to know if anyone else has had this feeling of really not being bothered with contact and being happier just being on their own. Your thoughts would be welcomed Best wishes Leanne Edited February 21, 2014 by Tina Added name to title :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
