Hi all, I'm new to this today, so please be patient with me while I tell you my story.
In Oct 14 I had a seizure in my sleep, so, off to A&E blue lights flashing, I went. I felt very unwell and was in and out of consciousness but when hubby asked about a scan he was told it was too big a radiation risk. So, 4 hours later I was sent home having had no treatment, plenty of push me, pull me tests! but feeling no better, in fact worse. After being only semi-conscious for a following 31 hrs, my GP sent me back to A&E for a scan which showed I'd had an intercranial haemorrhage in the right lentiform nucleus. I was admitted while they decided whether to transfer me for surgery but as the bleed had stopped itself they decided not to operate. That left me with no treatment available but painkillers for the muscle cramps, pains in my left leg and arm and rotten headache. 15 days later I had another 'episode', that no-one can label, that has left me with worsened symptoms, now my short term and medium term memory is a real mess, I stutter, use a stick, have extreme exhaustion and have dystharia so struggle to communicate (hell for someone who has always talked for a living).
so now i'm jobless with no hope of return to my trade, struggling with my roles as mum and wife, and feeling like I'm lost....so please....
am I the only one to be angry with their lot?
has anyone else dealt with the NHS messing up?
any tips for re-inventing yourself?
