I have talked about this before, and sadly, due to misfortune, I am back blogging about it again. It’s ok, that’s life, and I will keep looking forwards knowing I can do this.
Unexpectedly I had a call from BBC three counties radio.
They were asking would I be on their show talking about my head injury in 2011. Sure thing. If it raises a wee bit of awareness then I don’t mind at all.
The most frustrating thing is still the thought that because I physically looked ok, I must be ok. Not always the case with a head injury. A hidden illness, that people often underestimate.
I read back my head injury blogs. It is quite startling. I am glad I wrote them at the time, it shows how frightening head injuries can be. Oh, and did I mention, I went to China, 8 weeks to the day after the accident. And…. I was 17th, my best placing in a World Champs, ever!
Here is the interview, pretty impressed considering I was on a Skype call from New Zealand!
