I was recently diagnosed with a 7mm unruptured aneurysm 'in the front between the hemispheres just below the communication center' - whatever that means - I had a severe high blood pressure attack that rushed me to hospital and two CT scans that discovered it. I am seeing a coiling specialist in August.
In the meantime, my doctor has reluctantly signed me off from work. I was blunt with him and said that I would rather be around my family, who know what is going on with me, than to collapse be found somewhere on campus by people who don't know anything about me. I am dealing with headaches, blurry vision, coming and going numbness on the right side of my face and such bouts of exhaustion that the only thing I can envision doing at work is sleeping.
Is anyone out there able to work with an unruptured annie - how do you cope?
