Hello, you certainly need patience, but doing a small bit every day or two helps to build you up even if progress is extremely slow, stay with it, every day I find is a different feeling tired one day then a wee bit energy the next, have a good day
Shwmae @Fib, aye, it’s auditory overload. I had it quite severely early on after stroke. If someone coughed in another room my brain would sting. I used to try and tell myself it was kind of like a superpower but with its own Kryptonite when the noise was of a particular tone or pitch. It has settled down a bit now, but it still gets me when I am fatigued. I bought ear, sound, filter plugs early on and used those. Have lost them now.
hi what part it of essex, i was allright at home, my stroke was mild in hospital two days wrote diary, i was in broomfeld hospital, incidently, where i used to work, changed a lot since 1970 80. i was mobile, my leg and hand were affected, that was may 8th, recovering well, walked 1 and a half miles, but since i was in essex three weeks, my leg is more achy,as it was coaches, buses train to get there and back,cant write with right hand for long, think i overdone it, if i clean one one room thoroughly, i cant do too much more,gety tired. i am 76 just, so am going to have physio next week, cant walk up hills easily, as our bungalow is at the top of village somerset
Blimey, you’ve been through a lot! But you’re still here and getting on with recovery, i hope the physio helps and you make some good improvements. I can only imagine how the journey tires you out
I’m in Kelvedon and was taken to Colchester. I remember it all very clearly.like it was yesterday! The paramedics were really good, they called ahead to make sure stroke nurse/specialist was in a&e when i got there.
I love it here in essex, family are from Finchingfield and Tolleshunt D’Arcy so essex though and through Everywhere around us is getting so busy, thousands of new houses going up and changing communities everywhere.
My fatigue has improved greatly, when i came home i was sleeping 10-12 hours solid every day. Gone the other way now, good routine and in bed by 9:30 sleep about 10… Waking at 3-4am everyday and wide awake. Ive found an audio book called “This Audiobook will make you fall Asleep”! It is helping quite a lot, i do now drift off a bit before getting up around 6am.
Best wishes on your recovery journey, with you all the way
