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!
