Hi everyone - first time posting, but I’ve been lurking around for a while. There’s lots of great resources around here, which I’d like to thank all the contributors for compiling and presenting.
On January 2, 2018, I was rushed to hospital after collapsing while on my normal evening jog. I was diagnosed with a hemorrhage, and - eventually - with the diagnosis of a cerebral arteriovenous malformation in my left frontal lobe.
Just 24 hours ago, I underwent endovascular embolization - today, I am back home recovering with my mum. I just wanted to give a huge shout out to all the brave souls who struggle with deficits caused by cerebral AVMs and related strokes, and thank you all for sharing your stories. The posts I read really helped me to become a better self-advocate.
Take care, and good luck to all!
