Hello and welcome my love. You really are suffering aren't you!
I hear a lot about lethargy, tiredness.
You are coping with so much. Just the law suit alone is stressful let alone everything else you are dealing with. The trouble is I have a feeling you may crash and burn. I want you to use some tips on how to survive.
Tiredness is a symptom. You must sit down and talk to another adult about your whole experience. Tell them you do not want answers you need to talk and they must listen. When we tell a story it makes everything that is spinning around become logical. It also physically lets it out. You must do this. It may take a few coffees but it must be done, this is how women work.
You have written us a typical day in your life. Please sit down with your husband and write out 1 weeks schedule together. Within that schedule must be Mummies time. It may be just 2 hrs. But your brain will then know that those 2hrs every week are yours. Take a bath, go for a coffee with a friend, go for a stroll round the shops, whatever relaxes you the most.
You say you are not hungry. Our brains switch off from hunger when the body has no fuel to burn the nutrients. You know this but your brain has gone into starvation mode. It will tell you to bulk up on sugary high calorie foods to stop you dying! Please spend 3 days eating one 1/4 plate of carbs, one 1/4 plate of salad or veg and a 1/2 plate of protein. 3 times/day.
This will kick your system back into the need to eat, also by some enzymes from a health food store that encourage hunger.
For now that's it.
Much love to you, keep in touch.
I am a 36 yr old female who has played football, as a hobby, for 13 yrs. In July 2012, during a game I was slammed to the floor by two angry guys who hit into me so hard that one of them broke their ribs.
This knocked me back onto hard ground leaving me unconscious. I awoke to chronic head and neck pain, sickness and the inability to see or balance.
The paramedics made me walk to the ambulance, instead of placing me on a spinal board, where I was taken to the ER. I was hospitalised with suspected brain hemorrhage for 1 week, then on complete bed rest for 1 month, in a wheelchair for 2 months.
I have been left with PCS, moderate constant head pain, little short term memory, no memory of the accident, balance and sight problems, depression and exhaustion.
The worst problem is collapsing regularly. This has finally been diagnosed as Hemiplegic Migraines , these cause my brain to regularly shut down when I am tired and I then feel the full effects of a stroke (without the bleed on the brain!!) of which the symptoms last 2-4 days.
I have had 6 CT's, 2 MRI's and am under 3 specialists.
I believe everyday is one more towards improvement. Mainly I believe in the power of acceptance not the weakness of complacency or resignation.
