My life after my stroke - Mark

Recommended Posts

I can remember the day I had my stroke the 28 Dec 2016. It was the worst day of my life but you have to get on with it. I have 4 kids and 6 grandkids to think about. I only had 5% chance of living after my stroke

Hi Mark, good to hear from you.

I do wonder if you getting upset is a form of depression, that is not saying you have depression. Depression is quite common after a SAH.

My advice would be to see your doctor and discuss the problem with him/her. They may well be able to help by possibly referring you for counselling or even advise medication to get you through the tough patch.

Good idea - also maybe ask if you're suffering from PTSD - I was diagnosed three weeks after mine and had counselling which was a massive help, believe me.  Don't suffer when there are options available to you hun xx

Mark,

I wrote the other day I was teary, it helps to talk about it,  so do not bottle it up.  Come on here it has helped me get through rough patches.  A trouble shared as the saying goes.

 

My hubby has been so good to me but I still get teary some days as our brain has been through it.

 

I apologise to him and Daughter with tears running down my face lol.  I then break into a song which helps me but not the poor Hubby/Daughter. 

 

Keep stress at bay and take Supers and others advice  xxx Good luck and keep happy thoughts for rotten days we get.

 

Good luck 

Win xxxx

Hi Mark

Welcome to the BTG . I only joined on  Sunday and I am reading what people are saying. People really make you feel welcome and it amazes me how many have been through what I suffered and have come out the other side.I wish I could have joined years earlier.
