Hi everyone I am a survivor from 14 months ago a right side Haemorrhage which was repaired through a cerebral stent through the femoral artery and my main symptoms now are still nervous system issues such as balance numbness in my feet especially the left side and compromises to my speech language. I find the Neural fatigue is still pretty bad I am tired after three or four hours of being awake and have to rest my eyes or nap for at least an hour in the dark quietness. Meditation has helped me a lot to overcome the emotional trauma of my accident and the burst. I fell down 15 stairs while I had my stroke. I am from Toronto and love to any of you or hear from!

Welcome vidyasawh! So very sorry to hear what you are going through. You are definitely a very strong and resilient person for going through so much. Some of the effects of having an aneurysm is anxiety, which dr never warned me about. Plus all the other stuff like fatigue, headaches, dizziness, nausea & pain. 2yrs ago an MRI discovered a 5mm unruptured aneurysm close to my brain stem and I ended up in the ER from worrying too much. I had complications after the brain stent procedure and still recovering. Meditation and medication helped but still could not function so I just stopped working. Good for you for resting, it’s probably the most important thing we could do for our body to heal. I started therapy and joined an anxiety group and that has been more helpful than meds. My wife got me a Rottweiler puppy and bonding with him has has uplifted my spirits. Thoughts and prayers and wishing you a good recovery. btw, use to visit relatives in Toronto and always enjoyed your awesome city, living in No. California now. Take care.
Hi! I’m new here as well as my aneurysm just ruptured two months ago. Everyone on here seems super nice and supportive. I hope everything goes well for you! I know I need to start meditating, and I am glad it is helping you.
Time will make wonders and as I mentioned earlier I think that your youth is your superpower.
