Well here I am again. I know I don't post as regularly as I used to, but I don't know where the time goes, I really don't. My weeks are pretty full although my trips to the National have finally come to an end - helpful and interesting though the workshops were, they really were time-consuming.
I just thought I'd pop in and give you an update so that anyone coming here from the Brain & Spine Foundation can see that there IS light at the end of the tunnel, and that the post-stroke fatigue DOES get better. The biggest thing, I suppose, is learning to recognise your limitations and being patient. I know that just after my SAH I thought I'd be back at work really quickly. That didn't happen and I struggled with the horrendous fatigue, the cognitive issues and, although I didn't see it back then, the emotional ones too.
I am loath to say "I'm back to normal". After all, what is normal anyway? But I certainly feel a lot more like the old me and although I still push myself, I now know not to overdo it.
I might not come by quite so often now, as I work on my various projects, and I don't feel the need to tell the whole world about what I'm working on: when there is news, I'll come and blog about it, that's for sure. In the meantime, stay safe, stay happy, and enjoy LIFE!
