I also had aneurysm repair. I, like you, was in the medical profession as a RN. I hv had major fatigue and depression and periods where I can't even function. I feel like you in that I've always been able to help others n now it feels like I can't even help myself. I've pushed everyone away because I feel like I just bring them down as well. I was not time this before the surgery and I feel that because I look normal everyone is thinking I'm making it all up but I kno I'm not. It's helpful for me to read posts like urs to know I'm not alone n with no pun intended its not all in my head.

Default Anurism

I too had a brain aneurism on May 2 of this year. It happened to be my birthday. I had a coiling to stop the bleeding. I was hospitalized for a month and do not remember anything of it. I have been home for a month trying to readjust to my life. I have not been able to return to work and do not know what to do during the day. The emotional roller coaster has been tremendous. Any advise that you can give would be appreciated.

I spent a month in the neurosurgical ICU and another month at an inpatient rehabilitation hospital learning how to walk, talk and regain my fine motor function again. Prior to the hemorrhage, I worked as an Emergency Medical Technician. I knew something was seriously wrong once the symptoms began. I was lucky in the sense that I did not hesitate to have someone take me immediately to the ED from where I was airlifted to a Level I center. There are days that I feel so utterly blessed to be alive and recovering, and other days where I feel so depressed and sad that I don't even want to get out of bed. When those days come, I feel guilty for feeling that way. I am so used to being called to help other people when they are in need, I have a hard time asking anyone to help me. Because of that, I feel lonely and isolated alot.

My therapists have said that my recovery so far has been tremendous. The left sided nerve pain may or may not go away, but it has diminished tremendously since the bleed. I still have trouble finding my words sometimes if I am tired or stressed. I also have some coordination problems that still linger. I hate when my brain tells my left hand to do something and she doesn't want to listen!

My close friend, 'sister' and kindred spirit Eva, referred me to this site, and I am hoping to meet and communicate with others that understand what I have been through. Inside I'm still the same me.
