It's nearly a year since my accident causing my TBI

On the 11th Feburary 2012 something that happened that changed my life! I was driving up the M3 abd I had a rear tyre 'blowout' and lost control and came off the motorway and rolled several times into a ditch. I was rescued byHampshire and Isale of Wight Aiir Ambulance and taken to Southampton General Hospital. I was in a coma for 3 days and was semiconcious for the next 3 weeks. I spent a total of 6 weeks in hospital and suffered TBI, a fractured pelvis and ribs, double vision, vertigo and chronic fatigue!

It has been such a hard year, but could have been so much worse! The love and support of my family & friends has been outstanding.

Live, Laugh, Love

  • congratulations well not congratulations on having a head injury but for doing so well, keep on going and sounding so positive :)

  • It's so good to hear from people that have been through similar things. It can feel very lonely sometimes.

  • I always celebrate my anniversary. Yes, we were unlucky that whatever-it-was happened, but we are so lucky to have recovered as well as we have. Things could be much, much worse.
