Hi everybody, I have joined this forum because after a TBI in November 2015 I have been shocked at the level of care offered to a human treated in health care in the UK, as I'm classed as high functioning.
I have been told there's worse out there.I'm appalled as I was left with virtually no teeth ,a ripped eye muscle which made my eye droop and double vision and a broken neck( which to be fair to the professionals nobody noticed the eight month point) so I was lucky I I didn't kill my self till it fused in the wrong position so I am truly thankful that all I was left with pain mobility issues and was glad that they didn't bother then or till now; in fact with anymore the five hours physio in two years!
However I could have given need correct pain killers! Or been sent to pain clinic: as the cocodemol prescription hasn't touched the sides lol .
so hearing other people in the same predicament ...... weirdly makes me feel better, unfortunately I guess that's the diffuse brain damage or the executive dysfunction , I don't know but hi lol I would be good if I could have any suggestions to go about accessing the best healthcare or good things I can do out there..... cheers
P.s I know the above makes me seem a misery...not true.
