Brain Injury- injury mening it could get better.
It was the end of Febuary when I woke up from my coma.
On January the 18th 2009, I collasped and lost oxygen at about 7am. Was put straight onto a machie to keep me alive.
My parents got told tht I would be in hospital for a short while.
But when they tried to wake me I didnt wake up. It was then and only then when they realised the possiblity of injury to the brain.
I woke up blind, unable to talk and unable to walk, my hands were stiff. I was terrified from the nightmares when i was asleep.
I thought my dad and my grandma were dead- because thats what I had dreamt.
I didnt realise I couldnt talk in my head i was screaming because NO ONE WAS LISTENING but no one could hear me, because i couldnt talk.
My first word was 'Ice cube' and after that i thought i would soon be back at school.
9 months spent in a neuro unit in Preston, helped me recover.
I am alive and thats all that matters, I always think there are people worse off then me because there is!!!
I am now at university studying a foundation degree and im a co founder of Headway Blackpool Wyre and Fylde.
I laugh a lot because if i didnt laugh I would cry.
Yes life is harder but I just think if life didnt have these sorts of obstacles then life would be boring!
