Excellent! Thanks so much for sharing your success. I always held to the belief that if you’re doing something you love, then it’s not really work, it’s contributing to ourselves thus others.:joy:. I’m definitely doing a happy dance for you​:clap::dancer::man_dancing:

Congrats! My ten-year anniversary for the rupture and coiling was in 2022. Feels great, yes! And enjoying your work (and being able to do it, which I, too, was not for a while makes it all the better.

Yes, thank you. I have a bit of a memory problem with names (perhaps that is just me getting older!), and I had seizures (which I had never had prior to the rupture) and have been on anti-seizure medication ever since.

I had a seizure the day of my rupture and they put me on anti seizure meds but then a few months later I was able to get off of them, and I forget names as well and many other things I have to write every thing down, and there are parts or times of my life I can’t recall its frustrating
