Chelle C Posted June 8, 2015 Share Posted June 8, 2015 Hi all at BTG, Well it`s arrived my 1st anni-versay, I`ve been awake since 4.45, lots going on in my head stopped me going back to sleep, so here I am. It`s so hard to believe that a year has passed since my brain decided to explode, what a year it has been. I still remember it as if it happened yesterday, those memories still scare me. I was standing outside on the decking of our caravan at 5.45 this morning with my coffee just looking at the scenery and the tears were running down my face, why? because I just feel so glad to be alive. When I think back to when it happened, if they had discharged me with a migraine, I wouldn't be here. My partner Verdun has been my ROCK, I would not have been able to cope if it was not for him, I LOVE HIM DEARLY, he has been at my side through all of this and I will be forever glad that he was. When I think how far I have come since leaving hospital I am amazed, I`ve gone from being in a wheelchair, then on to a pair of crutches and now I only need them when I am having a dizzy day, I still have problems with my short term memory, that really frustrates me, I still sometimes get stuck for words and that also frustrates me but the way I look at it is this there are a lot more people who have a lot more problems than I have been left with after suffering a SAH, I believe I have been very lucky. The hospital I was in R.V.I. Newcastle were fantastic, I believe the care I received was brilliant, I have to thank the lord that we have such a brilliant hospital in our area. Now comes my BIGGEST THANK YOU, Karen I would like to say a huge thank you to you and all of the team at BTG, I would also like to thank all of the MEMBERS who have made me feel so welcome since I joined this wonderful site in March, it is like having an extended family,(without the arguments) I am so grateful for all the help and advice that I have had since joining, the other thing that has helped is knowing that if I am having a bad day I can come to BTG and talk to people who understand, for that I will be forever grateful, so thanks Karen for giving me and thousands of others a place to feel safe. My plans for today are to go shopping first thing, make a CHOCOLATE cake when I come back then chill for the rest of the day, Finally to anyone looking at this site and wondering if they should join in, my advice would be this GO AHEAD it could be the best thing you ever do, it was for me. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE AT BTG, I wish you all well. Lots of love Michelle xx 9 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
