These People Had A Brain Aneurysm And Survived. Here's What Happened...
A brain aneurysm is a bulge that develops on a blood vessel in your brain. While it doesn't cause problems when it hasn't ruptured, when it does, you could experience symptoms like severe headache, nausea or vomiting, stick neck, blurred vision and more alarming and even potentially life-threatening warning signs. These 15 people open up about what they went through after experiencing a ruptured brain aneurysm. Here's what happened...

A brain aneurysm can change your life.

1
I live in a nursing home after a brain aneurysm and surgery. I’m apart from my family and my home and I’m so miserable I just don’t want to wake up anymore

The diagnosis is scary.

2
I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder multiple times. I had a seizure one day and found out it was a brain aneurysm causing all the trouble.

Some side effects are difficult to manage.

3
So my girlfriend left me because of my mood swings. I just found out it is a side effect due to a brain aneurysm I didn't know I had. She still doesn't forgive me.

Everyone reacts differently.

4
I have a brain aneurysm and they gave me a craniotomy. It does change you but it affects everyone differently... I'm more impulsive and I lost some of my memory.

Managing the pain can be a slippery slope.

5
I used to have a pill addiction because of a brain aneurysm surgery I had. I've been off the pain meds for 2 1/2 months now and I never crave them.

It's a struggle.

I'm disabled from a brain aneurysm. You'd never know it talking to me but I can't hold down a job and dating is near impossible.
