Just When I Thought It Was Safe To Go Back In The Water

I’ve been writing lately about how much better I’ve been feeling and how I could see light at the end of the tunnel; post menopause; SCAD five years behind me and all that.


I hit 55 this week and celebrated with a fabulous luxury UK break.  Then, the day I get back from my holiday, I end up in A&E with a suspected TIA.

Pissed off doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel.  I have to go for a scan of my carotid this week at the TIA clinic. From there, a firmer diagnosis can be made, but I can’t help but think it’s all tied up with SCAD.

Unfortunately, stroke is a common feature in our family, and doesn’t come with a happy ending.

So banned from driving for four weeks and back to worrying about dropping dead or having a full on stroke.  Happy Days!

  1. Not going to hit the like button this. I am sorry to hear you are suffering and I think you’re correct. Once one major trauma hits you it weakens everything else.
    At times like this it is the little things that matter .. take care of yourself and enjoy what you have all around you x
