Both myself and my wife are disabled
 My wife is waiting TO have both her knees reconstructed.  I have got a reconstructed hip and memory retention problems following a rta in 1986 where I was on a Vespa and hit head on by another motorcycle.  I shattered a hip, elbow, broke various fingers, received a head injury and was in a coma. I have joined this group to help me find a physically appropriate job and to possibly help someone else by sharing my story. On the plus side I graduated from university in 2005 (rta in 1986 ) with a BA in Theology and Religious studies,  have passed my driving test since the accident, got married and become a father. Daughter 21, been married 22 years. So life still goes on for the head injured. However you are suffering now things can and will get better.

    Hi @Tucks


    You are a truly amazing man! Its easy to give up when life deals you a bad hand.  I admire your positivity and deyetmination.

    I was in a coma in March, only for 4 days. I was just wondering if you have had any after effects? I've been having really odd dreams.
