A good thing about going to Headway is they do sessions there that are all about brain injury education. To be honest is sounds quite boring but I have found it very helpful. I don’t think I would have thought this would be helpful but it is, not just for me but I feel like if people ask me questions now about ABI I would be able try to answer them. Of course I need to remember it all. Today I learnt about the consequences of a brain injury. A while ago I would have looked at it as see all the things as negative. But today I looked at it and it made me feel really positive as everything I have been feeling, everything that is now wrong with me is ‘normal’. I didn’t like the word normal but now it is OK. The thing is, do I now need to teach people about these things too? To let them know that it is normal now for me and not too worry if I do something strange or unusual. It may not be normal for the old Joanna, but it is for the new Joanna.

I have a brain injury, a hypoxic one. It has been life changing to me and I don't seem to want to stop talking about it. I think people are getting bored of me so a blog will hopefully help. Oh yeah, it has caused me to have mental health problems too...great. View all posts by A Recovering Brain
