ALmost 5 years after my head injury. Been stuck with nothing to do and hardly anyone to see or talk to. Moved to different area with my mum thought there would be more here to do or something til now nothing. My mums mate saw somewhere about a bloke nearby who had head injury from a man attacking him in a bar and since then he's set up a group for people who been through head injury and they have one to Ines with people to help them move on and group sessions talking to others to get to know people. Also they have some days out and activities. I started going 2 week back really giving me something to do and helping me get to know people. Only met the bloke who set it up for first time yesterday and he was lovely so welcoming and easy to talk to. He has done so much for charity to help people with brain injury and done a blog of first 3 years after. To read what he went through and read how he's struggled through would give anyone hope of recovering and moving on. As soon as I went in he came and sat talking to me it's nice to talk to others who been through same as people who haven't been through having head injury don't know what it's like. For me my mum has gone over protective of me like she can't go through it again so is controlling and a woman who works there whose brother had head injury says her mum and brother are a lot like me and my mum. So with their help I am following tasks to show I can cope and then the bloke will have a word with my mum and I've been told he is straight to point and blunt with what he says which I'm glad about cos he understands what it's like.
