Survivor Stories

Acquired Brain Injury is a complex issue, with no two individuals being affected in the same way.

As professionals in the field, we are able to develop an understanding and an appreciation of living with the aftermath of brain injury. However we are not able to truly empathise, as we have not lived it.

Sharing experiences with other carers or survivors is a vital part of coming to terms with the changes and can lessen that feeling of isolation.

We hope that in reading some of our members stories you will take comfort and inspiration from the fact that there are others out there who share your feelings and can relate to your experiences

Thank you to our members for being so open and honest in sharing their private feelings about the impact brain injury has had on them and those around them.
