Sorry for delay. I don't remember my accident and about a year after. I have recovered physically well, I'm now having cognitive tests looking at my memory etc.. do you have any support around you, to talk about your accident and how your feeling? Xx I didn't, because I looked okay and thought I was okay.

Yes my doctors an surgeons have been great to me a feel as tho am letting everyone down and a cant see life any better than this a know that sounds selfish because thers others worse than me but a jus cant accept my injury.a used to have everything my own buisness,boxing a was on top of the world and a just cant see me getting that back or even close to being there.nothing feels the same x

I'm in the physio but will reply soon and I'm 6and half years on and I mainly feel the same. Some days I'm really really bad and on loads of medication to help. Speak soon Hun x

I'm so sorry you are feeling like this but I do understand. I suffered a stroke last April and it has ruined my life. I feel so angry and resentful that it happened to me. And many a time I wish I didn't wake up. I can't offer much in the way of support but I really do feel your pain. My best wishes to you x

Thanks and all the best to you aswellx

Hi Astley, welcome :) well I'm a year on my from brain injury. Lots of changes....lots of unexpected stuff.....and I also wondered why I was in hosptal at first, I thought I didn't belong there with all those sick people. I do understand how you feel - a mixture of emotions seems to follow brain injury. anger, upset, fed up, frustrated, low, lonely to name but a few. I've also recently entered a state of disbelief.......wondering if it reLly happened. Everyone around me is acting 'normal, but I don't feel like that anymore. So please be reassured that you are not in your own. There's a lot of us out there , take care, and drop by anytime, we're always open :)
