Recovery Time

So, I was on short term disability but my doctor has cleared me to go back to work so tomorrow I will return to normal life. Today it preparation I ran some errands, cooked supper and tidied up around the house. I have to say I am completely exhausted. My arms feel tired as I type this. 
Over the years I have noticed that the older I get the longer it takes for me to recover both mentally and physically. At the moment the pain is a lot better I am no longer on pain meds and I am almost 100% but mentally I feel so tired. All I want to do is lie down and watch TV. I guess all the stress and a pain meds and interrupted sleep adds up after a while.
I met with the clinic staff to discuss some of the problems I have been having and they have decided to send me to a neurologist/ pain specialist on Friday. 
I agree that it is very strange that I have such severe pain yet the scans reveal no bleed. 
But the fact that it improves almost immediately with plasma makes me think that it must of been some sort of bleed. 
Either way I will try my best to get back to normal and hopefully I can go at least a few months without having another bleed. 

I've attached a picture of Zane and I in the hospital in December 2013, January 2014 and February 2014, its been a rough few months! I don't know how I could do it without Zane.
