Elizabeth47 Posted August 19, 2015 Share Posted August 19, 2015 My husband pre brain bleed was constantly moving. His alarm goes off at 4:30. He would exercise, take a shower and head to the hospital by 6 or so. He would do clinic or surgeries. If he got home early at 5 or 6 then he would change clothes and go outside and fix a fence, or tend the cows or do a home improvement project. My husband makes lists and so he would have 75 things on his weekend off to get done. Now some of those might be play a game with one child or go fishing with another. I never had to give him a to do list. I remember one morning he got up and noticed my sink was slow and fixed it at 5:30am.. So he had the brain bleed last October. He can only do a partial amount of surgeries... Reading bothers him. The chaos of clinic bothers him. Working out on our farm, he still enjoys but an hour or two of that exhausts him. Surfing on the computer to compare prices on things gives him a headache. My husband has never just sat around. Before the bleed, maybe once a year he would sit in a chair all day and watch football or basketball and it was normally because he didn't feel well and he would apologize to me for being such a bum. So what in the world is someone like this supposed to do to relax now that his stamina is gone???? When so many things give him headaches.... (the stress and lack of sleep on the job doesn't help... He was up till 3:30 am the other night when he was on call) He doesn't sit around well... Yet mental things seem to give him a headache as well.... I just don't get what someone who isn't even 50 yet is supposed to do.... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
