What happened to me
In 2005 I was run over by a car and spent 4 months in hospital.
Impact on family
My family now has to look after me and my wife and carer have to do the things that I used to do.
Impact on me
I have really low moods and a bad memory. I now have to walk with a stick and sometimes say things without thinking first and I can hurt people’s feelings.
I used to be a lorry driver and luckily I am still able to drive, which means I can still get out and about relatively well.
How Headway Cardiff has helped
Coming to the day centre has helped me a huge amount. I have made new friends and I am learning computer skills and doing activities that I wouldn’t otherwise. It really helps my mood.
What the future holds
I intend to live my life as best I can!
