I am 18 months in after a brain aneurysm and feel I am nosediving into depression. Nothing but pills pills and more pills. I don't think the same. I don't remember the same. I cannot make any decisions. I cry at andything. Happy sad difficult. My emotions are right on the surface. I can't spell or write. I can't explain. I look the same. I talk - sometimes- the same. Famy insist I just need to do this. And need to do that and get on with normality. They fail to believe I have no normality how they used to know me. I have migraines everyday. I can't even go out alone now as my brain just blanks and can't even think where I'm going to. Hmmm. Doom and gloom at the moment but my moods yo yo up and down. I was an English teacher, a cbt counsellor, a pilot, and a total go getter in my past. Now I struggle to get up and feed myself. They fear I may have another aneurysm because of all the migraines again, so more MRI's. I have no counselling, no referrals for rehab. No help and I live alone with lots to run as usual in a life that had been full. To say nothing of a mortgage to pay. And bills of course! Any tips or encouragement, or something to help my grown up sons understand what's happened better would be very welcome. 😊💕 PS. I live in Reading Berks. Is anyone near enough for a cuppa or anyone prepared to have a chat on the phone sometime. I'm not a loony- honest. Just needing contact with others who understand. xxx
