When I was at Headway the other day we did an activity that was connected to celebrations that we have. We talked in our groups about celebrations that are held around the world. Many were quite unusual but I can’t think of an example now. We were asked to create a new event that we could celebrate. I suggested celebrating our new lives after our brain injury which everyone liked. I feel like it is right to celebrate this day rather than look back at it and think about all the bad things that happened to us. The lady running the session asked everyone when their ‘new life’ day would be. Everyone knew their own date. This goes to show that this date will never be forgotten, the day our lives changed forever. People who have a cardiac arrest celebrate the day they were reborn. I did it last year. Did lots of things that took my mind off a day I didn’t want to remember. Now it is a day to be positive and not look back at what happened but to look forward to a positive future.

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
