My name is Markus and when I was 25 (4 years ago), I had a very serious motorcycle accident to cut a long story short --> months in coma, rehabilitation centre I checked out of because I'm one of those weirdos that 'needs' his own space and years later I'm still awake first thing in the morning, but face a daily 'mental strength plummet' which can and does lead to occasional aggression and somewhat violent outbursts.
With the unfaltering support of my partner Donna, I've decided to 'own up' and face the consequences of my actions.
I keep brushing off the effects of my 'traumatic brain injury' by not facing the music and either ignoring the pain/difficulty I've caused those closest to me and those in my environment or finding lame excuses that I whole heartedly believe are true when in reality I'm talking out of my a*s when what I really should be doing is getting help.
I'm the type of person that doesn't like the stigma of 'help' and always felt that a 'weak' person gets help and I'm not going to be 'weak'.
Truth is, I, along with many brain injury survivors, need support/help and I'm very genuinely hoping I find that here.
