Erm, feeling a wee bit self-conscious here, but I thought it might be helpful to share this article with you. It's about long-term consequences of a 'minor' brain injury, and how they can so easily be overlooked or misunderstood by doctors and the rest of us. It was published in the Daily Mail last week - and it's about me! So please be gentle!
I did this interview in conjunction with Headway, in order to try to raise awareness of the issue. Only a few hours after it was published, someone phoned Headway for help as a direct result of reading the article. I always said that if talking about my experience in public could help even one other person, it would be worthwhile; so I'm pleased about that. Perhaps there will be others. Quite a lot of people contacted me with their own stories after seeing it.
From reading people's posts and comments on this forum, I know that a lot of you might recognise the sort of symptoms I describe and have had similar experiences. It is interesting to read what the neurologist and neuropsychologist say in this article. The more we share our experiences, the more people will understand and know that they are not alone.
