Me - RTA over a decade ago, TBI, coma, long time in hospital, then 3 times longer in specialist neuro rehab, transfer to supported bungalow where I still reside alone. Walk with a stick, use a mobility scooter, can't drive a car, short term memory has holes, not employed, ESA, DLA, etc.
I'd been scanning the headway website and followed a link that led here. I was sure there were no brain injury forums/chat sites here in UK and now, one comes along together. (Milligan head nod)
Can't remember what I was originally searching for. - Oh, that's it - On the youreable.com forums someone mentioned that Headway is launching a scheme for Identity Cards which can be used to alert police and others about the condition of the person carrying the card. North Derbyshire maybe ? Anyone know anything about this ?
Q - Why do I sometimes feel guilty for receiving ESA ? Could I actually be one of those shirkers, skivers or scroungers ? Or is it due to the UK Govs messages of love they and their media chums spread constantly to us disabled types that brings on a pang of guilt ?
