At this point, I now think my recovery is finally going well enough to blog about again! It may have been a bit slower than all the other blogs that I’ve read, but recovering from this horrendous injury was never going to be easy!
I learnt how to speak in approx. 18 months, then properly started to speak within 2 years. It may be slower than all the rest of the other stories I’ve read from other TBI survivors online recently, but still a win wonnit!

I love lists! I’ve not done any lists in quite a while, but from now on I’ll try to make lists from everything I need to think about…
Richard Mackie came round this afternoon with his wife and son and it was so awesome that we didn’t even think to take a photo… Ahh well bro! We were all there trying not to gurn at each other I guess haha. Smiles aplenty!
We think it’s been around 10 years since we all left uni and went our own separate ways, so being able to catch up with an old pal was definitely the best bit of my recovery this year!
Next year, we’ll repeat this situation and then we’ll actually document it! 😞/😀
I then had this for tea and it was all awesome! It was tomato, chili red pesto and pasta with some chorizo. Nom.
