Liz H Posted April 4, 2017 Share Posted April 4, 2017 Hello, my name is Liz. I am 50 years old, surfer and artist, and I live in CA. 2.13.17 I finished my workout and I had an insane headache - it felt like the Hulk was pulling my head apart. I managed the 12 minute drove home. During which time, the headache got much worse. Within 45 minutes of the onset, an ambulance brought me to the ER, where I was being told I had blood in my brain. I was diagnosed with an Non-Aneurysm SAH. I was in the ICU for 12 days on stroke watch. Two cerebral angioplasty procedures later and they couldn't find the source of the bleed. After I left the hospital I was effectively dropped from care. According to my neurologist I would recover fully. He gave me a script for cognitive therapy, which took 5 weeks to get into and I start in 2 (weeks). I do go to PT twice a week. I feel a bit lost. I am getting better however everything is exhausting, I am feeling frequently fatigued, and plagued with headaches and feeling of being imbalanced. My world moves very slow now and one or two simple activities is what I can handle daily. I'm blessed with a very supportive wife and sister and dogs : ) I joined the site hoping to connect, share and learn from others. The isolation is scary and so is the healing process. Thank you.
