Hi. I had a large subarachnoid bleed in July. I was lucky that it was not caused by an aneurysm so I didn't need surgery. My only physical symptoms were the headache, vomiting etc, but no weakness or anything like that. I spent a week on a neurosurgery ward and then came home. I spent quite a while feeling almost euphoric due to the series of fortunate events that meant I was treated very quickly and of course the fact that I didn't need surgery. I went back to work 6 weeks later and to all intents and purposes am functioning normally. However I am struggling to rebuild my confidence in terms of fitness (it happened when I was out cycling on my own) and just living with that thought that it may happen again at the back of my mind. I'm struggling to access appropriate counselling & thought "talking" on here may help.
