Nurianna Posted October 2, 2008 Share Posted October 2, 2008 Hi there! Life post SAH continues. It's 4 months and a half now and I am definetely feeling better. The SAH does not dominate my thoughts 24/7 as it used to. The pains are slowly decreasing, are much more tolerable and my resistance is building up. Still get tired but much less than before. No comparison. One black spot, I must confess. I´m back smoking. Much less than before, but just couldn´t make it a day longer. Still seeing the neurosurgeon on October 16th. Had my CTA done here and a local surgeon I know had a look at it and said it looks good. It´s not the definite ok, since it´s not his speciality but it gave me a boost. The bad days are still bad but they seem to be spacing themselves out. I´m learning to cope with the whole situation much better. I´m also learning to say "NO" when I´m tired and doing too much. There was a friend who wanted to come over to visit and stay at home while she "helped", and I had to say "NO" because she drives me nuts and leaves my energy flat. It has always been like this over the years but just now I couldn´t bear the thought of it. Wouldn´t have been able to say "NO" before. In that aspect, the SAH has given me like a courage to look after myself better and not try to please everyone else around me. Well, that´s the latest from down here, Lots of love Nurianna Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
