Hi everyone i have been following this forum for about the last month and have found it really useful ,my story started at the beginning of May when I suffered a subarachnoid haemorrhage while trying a new horse ( I was only walking I'd only just got on ) this happened out of the blue with no warnings at all and was a total shock.things like this only happen in magazines like take a break etc,
I don't really remember much from arriving at hospital etc but I had coils fitted and was in the hospital for 3 weeks since coming out I've turned into an internet troll reading what I can ,I've realised how lucky I've been I'm only suffering headaches and a small amount of memory loss I get tired easily it's the emotional rollercoaster and the tears that I've struggled with the most it's not like me at all but I've been told that's normal. I had my 3 month check up and was told I have 2 more anyerisms but they are so small they didn't even measure them and I'd probably had them all my adult life ,this gave me a bit of a meltdown but I'm coming to terms with that now but it is always in the back of my mind I still can't drive until November but that's a small price to pay I've the OK to ride though so I've put an offer in on the horse I was trying at the time and it's been accepted so I can at least start to get my life back on track. Still not working due to not being able to drive but hey the weather is nice so every cloud as they say ,
It's nice to know you're not alone and people are there to listen (or read) I keep getting told how well I look and I feel I do but they don't see the ups and downs that go on in your head or the uncontrollable emotions that sometimes hit you when least expected.
Thanks for reading
