sandie Posted July 30, 2009 Share Posted July 30, 2009 Hi, My name's Sandie and I had my SAH on Christmas Eve, coiled 4 days later and thought I was recovering quite well and feel as though I've taken 15 steps back just recently! The headaches aren't as frequent or severe and I'm coming to terms with the tiredness but am really struggling with the emotional side of things! I think it's just hitting home how lucky I've been and am going through one minute happy about it....the next feeling guilty! I feel guilty for what my family went through as I can't remember a thing-and know they're still holding things back from me so as not to upset me any more than I already am! It has helped me finding this site and reading all your stories-I guess it's good to know that what you're going through is a normal part of recovery-you kind of feel as if you must be the only one in the world feeling like that! I'm just trying not to push myself too hard but am beating myself up whenever I forget words mid sentence-then feel like beating other people up when they talk to me like I'm 3 yrs old telling me to "take my time, it'll come to me in the end" haha!! That's another thing I've noticed post SAH-my temper!!! I've always been so (some say TOO!) patient but find myself yelling at the slightest thing-usually at my poor mum who's been an angel-thankfully she says she understands I remember being told in hospital that it would be a long recovery but me thinking I'm invincible didn't really believe them-now I do and am sure things will get easier with time! Wish you all well. Sandie xxx Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
