My name is Dave and I have been where very few people have been before. I have been almost killed in a serious car accident in which I sustained an extremely severe, traumatic brain injury amongst other injuries. The experiences I have to share will present you with a very rare and new opportunity to learn ideas and tips that you can only get from someone in my position, someone who has been almost killed but then recovered enough to share what they have had to endure. By reading my story, you will gain access to the life lessons I have learned without having to go through what I had to go through to learn them.
I woke up in a hospital bed of a five-bed ward, just behind the nurse’s station. I did not know where I was or what had happened to me. I couldn’t move my legs and I thought I was dreaming as I have no recollection of the events leading up to it. I did not understand why I needed the tube that was going straight up my nose, I did not know anything.
I am here to tell you that it is possible to recover after a serious, life-changing event, such as a stroke, car accident, or brain injury to name a few. Even though my life is different now, it is not all doom and gloom and I have a rather bright-looking future. I have written a detailed story about my crash and my life following it and when I refer to my story on this page, that is the story I am talking about. If you are interested in reading more about brain injuries, here is a link to the site of the organisation called Synapse. They are Australia’s Brain Injury Organisation.
This site is focused primarily on helping people with brain injuries, but anyone with problems could get inspiration from reading my story. Therefore, I think it would be useful to all because I don’t live a problem-free life and I’m sure you don’t either. There are times in all of our lives that we all need to be inspired but to find out more, you will need to read my story.
WHAT WILL MY STORY BE ABOUT
I was on my way to school one morning and the result of not seeing a car while I was at an intersection nearly meant the end of my life. I have had to relearn almost everything again, such as walking, talking, eating, the list goes on. Just think about it, imagine having to learn to walk, talk or even eat again. I have needed to relearn all of these things plus so much more, all the while still being able to remember that I used to be able to do those things. I have made considerable improvements since my crash and you can read all about them in my book.
WHY I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE
I am interested in the idea of helping people that have suffered a brain injury, the loved ones of those with the injury, people who have experienced some form of setg back and need some encouragement that there can be light at the end of the tunnel or even people who need a little inspiration. I have a kind heart so helping others is a passion of mine and I see it as my duty to share this information with others.
When I first sustained my injury, my parents were the main people who were looking after me. When I talk to them about that time now, they tell me that they searched everywhere for information and support. I want to offer people the support my parents were searching for.
I have had a lot of support during my recovery and as a result, I now want to offer my support to others with ideas of products, therapies, or ways of doing things etc, that have helped me recover, or even some inspiration to go on.
One of the main purposes of my site is that I want to give people hope. Following a severe injury, there is a lot of uncertainty and you don’t know what is going to happen to your loved one. Through my story and additional materials I will publish, I want to give hope and encouragement to those people who are in a very uncertain position regarding their loved ones. Even if you don’t have a brain-injured loved one, my story is written in such a way that anyone can be inspired by reading it.
