my boyfriend had just left for work and i was making a cup of tea when it happened, i knew instantly what was happening as 25yrs ago my mum had one and died, i managed to crawl downstairs and text my boyfriend to come home which he did in 5 mins luckily, was taken to hospital where i told dr what i suspected , i remember dr putting his hand on my knee and saying you are right you have had a bleed ! i was transfered to walton centre where i had surgery to fill another 3 aneurysms with coils so dont remember much from sunday till i woke up on the tuesday after. i couldnt quite believe what had happened (still cant) but after only 10 days in hospital i was released home to my boyfriends care with only a bag of pills and a leaflet ! i have never felt so totally terrified, worried,lost in my life my boyfreind took all his due holidays but had to return to work after a further 2 weeks and i was so scared you see i moved over here to live with him 4 yrs ago so had no family or even friends to help me so .... thank heavens i found headway wirral because i honestly feel they saved my life as i was so very low the 1st day i walked into the group sue was there who runs our group and 1 other lady called julie ( who is now my best friend ) they gave me a cuppa and a box of tissues i cried and cried then we talked and drank tea . i go every tuesday and thursday now have done a sponsored dragon boat race to help raise funds we do crafts and have days out , they are helping me to try claim dla as i cant work or claim any other benefits as my boyfreind works and is expected to keep me ! i am just starting to help out and do a little volunteer work with our group which i really enjoy, i have my bad days where the tears wont stop but thankfully more good days , i have no physical scars and can walk and talk but my brain is not the same and i forget things (like punctuation lol) i go for trains and wonder where they are when im at the bus station ! i forget to do things but IM ALIVE and fairly healthy i have a fantastic man who loves me and i have headway wirral who mean everything to me.
