Yes after a lot of soul-searching and bringing back all these nasty feelings of tragedy that I have tried to bury deep within, I have come out the other side feeling more optimistic. I would not be here without Headway helping me with advice and directing me to employment support for disabled. I would not have got there on my own that is for sure!!! Also I've been telling people straight when I stumble with words or forget something 'yeah sorry, I was in a coma 20 years ago through a car accident and my brain doesn't remember every detail well after the head injury' makes me feel a lot better! I used to feel guilty and worried due to other people being involved in the accident but I'm not suffering it now- my life was destroyed too!
Anyway, all positive for the future now- this 'tragic event' has held me back too long and I'm not holding back now- my fighting spirit has returned!!! Survivor to the end
