I've recently been registered partially sighted due to no left-side periferal vision and brain damage effecting my front visual field after 2 massive brain abscesses and 2 brain surgeries in Nov 2019, I survived when I shouldn't have done and it's left me with a new super positive, brighter personality, I was the world's worst negative person before so its rather strange to say the least.  I still have problems due to the brain damage and I'm trying to come to terms with it especially that I will never drive again 💔.  On the plus side it has brought my family a lot closer together and makes me appreciate veryone and everything  in my life 💜

    Hi @MommaDuck Welcome to the Community. You are a very positive person to be able to see the good that has come from your brain damage. It will take some time for you to fully come to terms with your condition, but you have made a brilliant start.  I hope you enjoy being part of the Community. If you have any questions please ask. Take care.

    Welcome to the community @MommaDuck :) How are you doing today? 

    I'm sorry to hear about what you went through back in 2019, as I can imagine that must have been quite traumatic. However, I'm glad that you've managed to find a more positive outlook on life as a result of it!

    Have you and your family been enjoying the festive period?
