Clare Posted August 7, 2018 Share Posted August 7, 2018 Hello, I am new to this site, my sister had a Subarachnoid Haemorrhage in May, she was in critical care for nearly 3 weeks(she had a coil) and also had the complication of vasospasm. She has been home for a while now and have to say the support from medical professions has been non existent! No one has told us what to expect or how to help. Since she has been home she is very tired all the time(which I totally get by the research I have done) she is constantly transfixed by the television and without sounding blunt when she's watching tv you can get no sense out of her, it's like she's just in another world. We cannot get her out of the house other than for doctor's appointments, mood varies from hour to hour, again I understand from research, I guess my question is, how/what is the best way that we can help her??? She just says she doesn't want to go out or can't be bothered, actually she doesn't want to do anything in the house either other than watch tv! My worry is she is going to fall into depression as well, I can tell she is getting bored & is falling into set routines in a day, certain meal every day, drink(not alcohol), tv programmes. Anything different we suggest we either get the look! lol or attitude!! I know patience is the key and we are still early days and everyone recovers differently, we are very grateful that she is still with us despite being a different person to what she was but if any of you have any suggestions/advice that helped you or could help her with her recovery it would be appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read. Clare Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
