Does anyone get scared that it could return?

I’m post VM a year now cannot believe how fast this year has gone and to think this time last year I was still in hospital for 10 days! Worse experience of my life but I remember each day as if it was yesterday but yet can’t seem to remember things I did yesterday or a week ago I’m guessing this is a side effect of it?

Anyway I’m currently getting a few symptoms at the minute as have a bad cold and that’s how it started in the first place 😞 currently have pressure in the back of my head, my neck is very stiff and I’ve had a migraine today which I don’t usually suffer with 😢 I’m just terrified it’s returning and no one seems to understand or even care that I feel like this! I just feel like I’m on my own suffering with it 😞

yes because ive had it 3 x so anytime I have a headache I wonder if its going to take that big step. but once you've had it ,there is no mistaking it if it returns
