My story

[p]I've been running a while now, some runs more successful than others.. And it's a particularly unsuccessful run in March 2014 that's brought me here, raising money for Headway. It was cold and I made the cardinal sin of running with my hands in my pockets. What followed should have just been a funny story about a girl falling flat on their face, but sadly knocking myself out and waking up with a traumatic brain injury robbed some of that comedy value. Update: I can just about laugh about it now![/p][p] [/p][p]The last three years have had their ups and downs whilst learning how to love my new brain and it's capabilities. Without Headway helping get me back up from my fall (quite literally), it would have been a very different, very scary journey back to recovery - for all the family.[/p][p] [/p][p]Headway work to improve life after brain injury, providing support, services and information. I experienced an incredible service including weekly home visits and group meetings, and it improved my life dramatically.[/p][p] [/p][p]Now I'm back on my feet (too many puns yet?!) it feels like time to give back to the charity, so they can continue helping people rebuild their lives. [/p][p] [/p][p]It all started with a run and after my accident I couldn't wait to get back pounding the streets.. let's see if I feel the same on the 23rd April?!![/p]
