I was attacked 2.5 years ago (by my girlfriends ex!) and sustained head injuries which developed into Hydrocephalus. I had a shunt fitted August 2016 which has improved my life but I still have the usual TBI side effects as well as Executive Dysfunction.
My girlfriend has now given up on me as I am moody, forgetful and generally not a nice person any more. Sad because before the attack I was lively, happy and ran my own successful accountancy business. I now have very few friends and have lost the woman I loved.
Please someone tell me it gets better! I've started going to Headway meetings but TBH they aren't really suited to me as I need more interaction.
Life feels pretty empty at the moment................
