I just realised that it is exactly a year on Saturday that I joined the AVM Survivors community. It has been a very interesting journey over that year and I want to say it has been great to share some time with people in this community. Thank you for having me. Thank you for supporting me in the more difficult times. I still have the greatest respect for everyone who has gone through a bleed. I’ve only walked so far along this journey, compared with some.
I have tried to give back to the community just as much as I have received. Sometimes I’m sure I overdo it but please forgive me!
I have to say that reflecting on how I am this week, I am much better than I have been since the beginning of the year. I still have days when my head feels odd but perhaps as many or more when it feels just fine. I’m definitely better than I was after my embolisation in April, than after my angiogram in May, or for that matter than I felt last month.
I hope others get encouragement from my story and it is great to be part of this community!
Lots of love all,
