Survivors Circle: How Meeting Other Brain Aneurysm Survivors Helped Me Heal.

Updated: Jan 26

It was a terrifying and depressing experience for me after I had a ruptured brain aneurysm. I was alone and felt like I was the only one in the world who had gone through such a traumatic event. In addition to my physical struggles, I was also an emotional wreck. I couldn't imagine ever finding someone who could truly understand what I was going through.



For nine long months, I struggled to come to terms with my condition and the isolation that came with it. I tried to reach out to others, but no one seemed to have gone through a similar experience. It was a rare condition, and I felt like I was fighting this battle all on my own.



Then, one day, I stumbled upon a brain aneurysm survivors group on Facebook. At first, I was hesitant to join. I didn't want to open up to strangers about my struggles. But something inside me pushed me to give it a try. And I'm glad I did.



As soon as I joined the group, I realized that I was not alone. There were others just like me, who had gone through a similar experience. It was a huge relief to connect with people who truly understood what I was going through. It was like finding a ray of hope in the midst of darkness.



I started sharing my experiences with the group, and to my surprise, many others could relate to my struggles. They shared their own stories and offered words of encouragement and support. It was a safe space where I could be vulnerable and not feel judged.

Being a part of this group was a turning point for me. It gave me the strength to keep fighting and to never give up. I learned so much from the stories of others and found hope for my own recovery. It was a reminder that I was not alone in this journey and that there are others out there who have overcome this condition.



Today, I am grateful for that fateful day when I stumbled upon the brain aneurysm survivors group. It gave me a sense of belonging and a community of strong, resilient survivors who continue to inspire me every day. I may have experienced a ruptured brain aneurysm, but I am not defined by it. I am a survivor, and I am not alone.



"Brain Aneurysm Survivors" is a remarkable private Facebook group that was founded in 2008 and has grown to over 13,000 members. As a survivor of a brain aneurysm, being a part of this group has been a crucial source of support and guidance for me. Without their help, I'm not sure how I could have navigated my recovery journey. I highly recommend that other survivors join this group and take advantage of the private chat group and video meetups held twice a week. It's incredibly comforting to connect with others who have gone through a similar experience and truly understand the challenges and triumphs of being a brain aneurysm survivor.
