Feeling stronger...

Posted on February 14, 2011 by Alan Byrne

I'm feeling stronger and I believe that I am ready for another challenge in my recovery programme so in the next couple of weeks.

I will be starting travel training and that includes someone bringing me on bus journeys for safety reasons and after around a month I will be able to travel on a bus to wherever I want like the square or into town.

Being able to travel on my own will give me more confidence and independence than I already have .

A second chance

Posted on February 08, 2011 by Alan Byrne

Although the doctors were great to me; I know all their work would have been for nothing if I did not have a positive frame of mind after my accident.
I had to show some determination and challenge myself to get back to where I was before my injury.

What happened to me was unfortunate but I believe that I got lucky in been given a second chance in life and I knew I had to take full advantage of it and that's exactly what I've done.

I know that there were times that I could have given up my recovery programme too easily as I met loads of patients who have done and I knew I could recover and did so for my family.

Regards
Alan

If you meet us in the street...

Posted on January 25, 2011 by Martina C

Hi all long time no blog. Hope you all had a great Christmas and I wish you all a Happy New Year. I only have a few months left in Headway. I will miss the crack we have on a daily basis and the stories.

I cannot remember when I first started in Headway, it is nearly two years ago but I notice a big difference in what I can do now. It is nice to be back reading being able to use the computers, doing work on memory exercises which I had and still have a problem with, but not as much as I did in the past.

First Christmas at home for five years

Posted on January 17, 2011 by Alan Byrne

I was at home permanently last Christmas for the first time in five years. It felt great being there and again this year.

Although I was in hospitals and a nursing home for up to almost 5 yearsI always knew that I would get home but I also knew that it would be a long journey. As well as the doctors being terrific, I also knew it would of been for nothing if I did not do my share of the work and be determined to recover as much as possible and also stay positive.
