keyo Posted March 16, 2021 Share Posted March 16, 2021 My NASAH happened February 22nd. Thankfully my husband was home, we got good care, and I have no major physical deficits.I was in the hospital for 9 days and I believed that once the blood cleared from the CSF that I would be back to normal. Once I was home for a few days, I was getting very depressed and frustrated about the exhaustion and headaches because I thought I should be better. Thankfully I found this site and have started to form more realistic expectations for what may be a long recovery. Some days I am very sad about what happened and about my lack of energy and about my lack of ability to concentrate for very long. Some days I fell almost normal, but these are usually followed by a tired day. The roller-coaster of physical and emotional experiences is really hard. My husband is absolutely wonderful and I worry about the toll this is taking on him and on our relationship - I'm just still really shaken by the whole thing. I've been reading the site for the past few days and thought I would post... I know you're going to tell me that it is early days and I need to give myself more time, but I am finding it very difficult to slow down and manage the expectations I have had for myself for so long...but I'm trying. 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
