Dangerously a thought has occurred to me and I find myself wondering whether there is a postcode lottery in terms of provision for brain injuries or does willingness/determination play a bigger role given the budget restraints in the NHS?
2 years after my bi I found out that I was expected to have "locked in syndrome" because of the nature and location of my injury.
It was only after my first MRI some 3'months after my accident when I was teaching myself to talk again that I was asked what I wanted. Speech Therapy please!
4 months later I got speech therapy and, from that, a referral to neuropsychology which led to Occupational Therapy and Neurophysiotherapy.
I have been discharged from both: one with a fully open door and just a phone call if I need them and the other with a letter to give to GP to get a referral.
Anyone got any ideas?
