How has your life been since your brain injury? Do you feel you are same as before or how have you changed?
I had brain injury in 2012, was in hospital a month and half. Had to have physio to walk again but everyone said I made fast recovery. For me the worst thing about my accident was losing my dog. It was a car accident which we was in luckily I have no memory of the accident. A month after coming home my nan brought me a pup which has helped a lot both getting back to walking outside and coming to terms with the dog I lost. I now feel I'm back to how I was before, but my mum notices differences in me like I get angry faster which I don't agree with. I have been on ESA since the accident now in the work related one which I hope will help me get doing something towards getting a job. At the moment I don't go out much a relationship ended a few month after the accident and I haven't been out doing much to meet new people. I would like to do some admin or computer course both to meet people and help towards a job in future. I joined headway and have been to one medium night a few month back and did go to 1 women's group to talk about how we got head injury but the 2nd session was cancelled as not many could get and then it was cancelled altogether. There has been mention of a computer course and cooking course but no place been booked to have them so not looking like they will go ahead.
