Hi everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I hope everyone is managing to stay safe during this unprecedented time.
I’m coming up to my 2 year anniversary since having gamma knife surgery (July 2018) for my left occipital AVM. Since having gamma knife (GK) the road to recovery has felt rocky. I feel low in mood most days and feel like I’ve had a complete personality change. I don’t feel like my usual happy & bubbly self. I feel angry all the time and tearful and I feel like I’m under performing at work since having GK. I have general dark thoughts and sometimes I feel like ending my life. I’ve been to the GP and they have referred me to talking therapies. I’ve also been doing mindfulness most days.
I just want some general advice from others who may have experienced something similar. Is it normal to feel this way? Or do I need to seek further help? I’m open to all advice and support.
