So my name is Mike I have a wife and two kids aged 4 and 3. I have had Dandy-Walker syndrome and Hydrocephalus from birth, but was undiagnosed until the beginning of 2015. I under went brain surgery to fit a VP shunt to help reduce the amount of Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in my head, which would in turn reduce pressure build up. Since then I have also had a flow restrictor valve fitted in my neck and had two ICP bolts. I suffer with headaches and pain daily. I aslo suffer from OCD and perfectionism disorder and can get very anxious. After having some time off of work whilst having surgery, I attempted to go back to work but after struggling for 6 months decided to swap rolls with my wife, and stay home to look after the kids whilst my wife took up full time employment.
