coming back home?

well folks i will be coming back next thursday after 8 weeks in thailand , i can say i am not looking forward to this as my health will start to deteriate soon after , allways does,

not enough sun or heat for my condition the sun really does make a difference to my health and general well being my PTSD for the most part goes away but is still lurking in the background waiting to pounce

at any time ,

i hope i will bring some sunshine back with me we all need some sunshine in our lives from wherever

after all we have been through ,

it has been nearly 9 years since my brain injury + other things from a vaccination it has been a long and difficult time , so i and we long term victims really do understand what you newcomers to Headway are going through in fact not just Headway anyone with a disability life can be pretty tough,

lots of love to you all, john xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.

  • Hi Spartan,

    Yes the sun and good weather certainly helps with my mood too not that I get away much as so busy at work but really need a holiday now. 9 years, thats a long time and your still coming on here and helping others. This forum has really helped me, really helped. I v learned so much here and still learning, its fantastic to know I'm not alone with some of the thoughts I have and what I want to do with them. Brain fatigue was my biggest issue but thats getting better as long as I accept when its coming on and deal with it.

    Have a fantastic journey back to the UK and I hope you have a great day. N

  • thank you, brain fatigue is one of my biggest problems too

  • Hi John

    I wondered where you had gone to!

    My spascitity improves in the heat and just the general feeling if the sun is shining, I am more likely to feel happier, want to go out. The summer on South Coast has been rubbish. It has rained a lot in August. I am not looking forward to the clocks going forward and the dark nights. My mobility decreases in the winter. Fatigue is still an issue for me.

    I hope the transition home is not too much of an upheaval for you, and you have us to chat to 😄. I am four years posSt TBI . I would love to visit Thailand, I have heard it is beautiful. Perhaps you can tell me a bit about Thailand when you return?

    Take care

    S xx

  • SOMETIMES I WONDER WHERE I AM GONE TOO,AS FOR THAILAND IT IS FANTASTIC, BUT YOU HAVE TO BE HERE TO GET THE FEEL OF THE PLACE

    ON EVERY VISIT I HAVE BEEN HAPPY , I HAVE A RELAXED SOME WOULD SAY A BORING LIFE BUT IT SUITS ME AND MY HEALTH, I CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THAT, LOTS OF LOVE XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX , JOHN.

  • glad you had a nice time,safe journey back,maybe you could look into one of those light boxes?

  • I'm sorry you have to say goodbye to your beloved Thailand once again. It must be a massive wrench leaving the place which is so therapeutic for you ; a very very different environment to Britain of course.

    Is it family which brings you back each time...................mainly your grandson ? xx

  • NO MY VISA RUNS OUT I CAME HERE TO HELP A FRIENDS DAUGHTER JUST AS WELL BECAUSE I WAS RECOVERING FROM A EMERGENCY OPERATION 999 JOB 2 DOCTORS THOUGHT I WAS OK ON VISTS TO MY HOUSE ONLY JUST MADE IT THE DOCTOR SAID THE NEXT DAY WHEN I WOKE UP, 7 DAYS IN HOSPITAL , THAT IS TWICE NOW HAVE CHEATED DEATH, BUT THE REST HAS BEEN BETTER FOR ME HERE THAN IN ENGLAND, BY FOR NOW

    LOTS OF LOVE XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, JOHN.

  • Safe journey John. Talk soon I hope. xxx

  • Sunshine and blue skys I can deal with but heat hits me flat!

    So bright spring and autumn days are best for me although summer sun witha cooling fresh breeze do as well.

    The thing with BI or any major health issue it brings out the appreciation for each fresh day. Get the waking up bit done and the rest is a bonus.
