Swishy Posted April 25, 2018 Share Posted April 25, 2018 One year ago, April 25 at 6:45pm I experienced a thunderclap headache. I had no warnings, I had no idea what it was. Thankfully my cousin was with me and realized something serious was going on and off to the hospital we went. I recovered easily and well, it stopped bleeding on its own. I spent only 3 days in the hospital, I walked out of there thinking that was it. The most scary was yet to come. On April 29th I was alone and suddenly I was again having symptoms but worse, way worse...I called emergency services myself and from there don't remember much for the next several days...they told me it was vasospasm, some days later..I spent a week in Intensive care and two weeks in rehab..I was off balance needing a walker and struggling with easy math and word puzzles.. So today a year later, I am doing well, very well...yes I still have some things that I struggle with such as pretty well controlled headaches, some difficulty organizing new information...but...I am here and I am so extremely thankful. I am enjoying my life heading to Mexico for a vacation soon. This site has been part of my journey, your stories, your journeys. I tried to find a support group in my area and could not, you all are my support group. Even when you are responding to another person that shares some of my journey it helps me...I hope in some small way to help someone else with my story.. So bless all of you who take time to write. I am one year down looking to get my full years of life. I am thankful and still improving.. Life is a gift and every time I hug someone I love I realize how fortunate I am..
