Insomnia

hmmmmm i wonder if i blog too much lol i guess thats the downside of insomnia I have been thinking a lot today after speaking to a lady on the headway helpline one thing that stuck out was that she thinks that ihave coped extremely well considering what i have gone through i just said to her ive had to for the kids when i had my stroke and heart surgery in 2009 my daughter was only 2 and now having the bleed and suspected ms my boy was only 9 weeks when it happened and now he is 14 weeks i know i need to be strong for them i know ihad a wobble by saying maybe it would of been better for everyone if i had of died but i know i didnt mean it i guess we all have our really dark days i know whatever is thrown at me i can fight it i didnt have anyoneor support when i had the stroke but now i have my civil partner who supports and looks after us all so if i can fight a stroke basically alone with 3 months rehab i can fight this :) my dad gave me a big boost today he is paying for me and my family to go to cropredy festival which we are really excited about but i am secretly nervous as i worry it may be too much but it is only 45 mins from home so imsure it will be ok :) just thought it was about time i posted somthing a bit more positive for a change lol :) the pic is of my kids my life x

  • I have read your messages, and I have to say I think you are absolutely amazing after going through so much. Good for you, enjoy the festival. Its great to have something to look forward to. Your little ones are beautiful, and give you so much to live for Im sure. Keep strong, your children will be so proud of you.

  • Your positive mental attitude is essential to recovery. We all get dark days when it seems that we will never be our old selves again. It takes time, it's been just over three years since my brain tumor was removed and I'm not 100% but I am now fit enough to hold down a full time job and do all the the things I need around the house and garden.

    Have a great time at the festival and stay positive!

  • Good on you for going out and doing it!
