I hope you’re all good.
My name is Yoosuf (Joseph in English) and I am 21.
I was born with an AVM on my left eye (frontal & temporal lobes)
I had a bleed end of 2017 which changed everything for me! (it took a whole year for it to heal by itself)
My AVM is now being treated with bleomycin via sclerotherapy.
I’ve had two injections so far (September 2019 & January) I was due a third injection in April but due to covid my treatments have been postponed.
I tried to kill myself back in March.
I wasn’t in a healthy place at all & what I did was impulsive.
Thanks to the police, air ambulance & hospital they saved my life & I’m blessed, grateful & happy I survived!
I woke up in the ICU.
I had to relearn how to walk, talk, regain strength in my left arm because it was floppy.
My neck was all stapled.
I got sectioned in June.
I’ve spent the last 4 months in a psychiatric hospital & Wow! I’m forever grateful for what they’ve done for me, what they’ve done for me is absolutely remarkable!
I haven’t felt this great & empowered since year 7 when I was 11/12 years old.
I got discharged on Monday.
I’ve also been diagnosed with bipolar.
I’ve been educating myself about bipolar ever since.
Life is so precious! & it’s a journey.
I’ve learnt this year life is about perspective & create memories!
NEVER LOSE HOPE!
I’M ALWAYS HERE IF ANYONE WANTS TO MESSAGE ME ABOUT ANYTHING
