well, I am finally on here again, so busy been work and trying to figure things out.
So my fiance had his first angiogram, and I guess it went well. The AVM is low risk and there are no bleeds, but there is some scar tissue close to it ( probably from years of football )
So he has to go for his follow up and then they will go from there, they saud something about putting a shunt in his head, I don't think that is a good idea at all, I don't knopw why, but just a gut feeling.
The thing I want to really know is about personality change, is anyone else going through this?
I have been with my beau for 13 years, finally at 32 years old we got engaged ( actually 2 months ago )
but it feels like ever since this AVM was discovered he is repulsed by me and evrything I do. He is never wants to be around me, or even talk to me...I feel like he gets irritated with everything I say or do. This is so DIFFERENT from what I am used to ( prior to AVM discovery). This really saddens me. Everytime someone asks about our future wedding I just shrug my shoulders and shake my head. He doesn't even want me to mention a wedding date. I always seem to be holding back tears...at work, with my family and friends, and even when I am alone. I have tried everything and have done so much for him, I would bend over backwards for him, but the same feeling arises....I feel like he hates me or something.
HE tells me I don't know how to communicate with him, but he gets so short with me...he walks away, drives away and when I come home from work he leaves.
He doesnt like to talk to me about his AVM, I feel isolated from the situation.
If this is not normal for AVM patients, then I guess my future looks pretty bleak. The saddest thing is I never have loved anyone like him, nor do I want to love anyone else....this AVM is not bleeding in his brain, but as cheesy as it sounds, it is bleeding in my heart.
