Hi everyone, I was just wondering if any members have applied for one and if so have they found them useful? I ask because as you all know you appear 'normal' to the outside world but when I am asked to do various tasks or favours ,if I decline I am asked why or snubbed because I am perceived as lazy or cannot be bothered when in reality the fatigue and anxiety is killing me!
I have just got my card today and thought it may be a good idea just to show it to the uninformed if such situations arise again which is something I would have been aghast to even think about a few years ago! but now more awareness of mental health and TBI has taken the stigma and shame away( I think)
Anyway I was just hoping some of you lovely folks out there might have had cause to use or consider getting the card.
I will update again eventually to let you know about my experiences of using it - I believe the main use is to present it to Police etc but sure it can be used generally to avoid us TBI's being peer pressured when unable to do so?
What's your thought's ??
Health and happiness to you all!!
