One Year Later

One Year Later

Tomorrow will be my one year anniversary from surviving SCA. It has been a long road and I still have a way to go to get back to where I was prior to SCA. I was reading where SCA survivors suffer from the following:guilt, sleep disturbances, a perception of vulnerability, a sense of urgency, greater love of family and friends and greater empathy toward others. I have these and was wondering if anyone else is still suffering from these issues.

SCA blog question

5- years later, yes. But there has been some improvement in short-term memory but not enough to do jobs requiring processes requiring more than 2-3 steps. Numbers are especially hard to remember. Depression and
stress are quite common. It takes a lot of understanding from loved ones to carry on.
